The Endless Lightness of Design
With his col­lec­tion for au­tumn/win­ter 2012 'To In­fin­ity and Be­yond' - his third menswear col­lec­tion - the fash­ion de­signer Ju­lian Zigerli demon­strates that cre­ativ­ity and com­fort are not mu­tu­ally ex­clu­sive.
The Ju­lian Zigerli label pre­sents it­self as guar­an­tee­ing highly func­tional and in­tel­li­gent ar­ti­cles of cloth­ing of a high tech­ni­cal qual­ity, with a sporty touch. Ever since his first col­lec­tion, 'Sugar, Spice and Every­thing Nice', Ju­lian Zigerli has ex­per­i­mented with hy­brid ar­ti­cles of cloth­ing such as his so-called Jack­packs, which com­bine a ruck­sack with a jacket. In his new col­lec­tion, he takes this a step fur­ther, de­sign­ing out­er­wear to be worn over the Jack­packs.
The spe­cial qual­i­ties of this col­lec­tion are re­vealed where the dif­fer­ent fab­rics and ma­te­ri­als meet. Here, one sees the con­fi­dence with which Ju­lian Zigerli han­dles fab­ric and cuts and his knack for unit­ing pat­terns that at first glance ap­pear in­com­pat­i­ble. Ac­cord­ing to the de­signer, his con­cepts have their ori­gins in a land of di­nosaurs, Bern­stein and youth. He adds that a fur­ther im­por­tant el­e­ment is the Moe­bius strip, which, with its sin­gle sur­face, sin­gle side and sin­gle edge, per­fectly en­com­passes the col­lec­tion.
Even the vi­sual com­mu­ni­ca­tion ma­te­ri­als of 'To In­fin­ity and Be­yond' take the viewer on a jour­ney. Ac­cess­ing Ju­lian Zigerli's web­site, one is im­mersed in the de­signer's world; his love of de­tail, his sub­tle hu­mour and his pas­sion are en­chant­ing.
