Paris · Boris Bidjan Saberi
Entitled Heimat, Boris Bidjan Saberi’s newest collection echoes the designer’s native re- gion ; allowing the viewer to interpret the collection as a translation of his Bavarian origins and as a creative maturation that speaks to an internal sense of place.
The designer who has often ventured far in his exploration of monochromatic contrast, offers a colorful collection this season. An eye-catching palette of vermillion reds, icy grays, and charcoal blacks compliment the intensely detailed work on cuts and nishes.
Citing military wardrobes as a boundless source of inspiration in creating the apparel of his ur- ban soldiers, season after season, Boris Bidjan Saberi unveils a daring hybridization. Heimat gives a new perspective to this subtle functionality, merging traditional Bavarian suits with the layered silhouettes of highlanders.
Removed from the context of its original use, the mountain wardrobe displays a renewed aes- thetic that blends sophistication with ruggedness.Treated parkas, sutured leather jackets, and enveloping capes suggest a demanding environment where the focus of attire is on practicality and durability.
Tailored in stiff cottons, the visual roughness of the blazers meets carmine balaclavas and protec- tive oversized poplin shirts.While overalls and jumpsuits are anatomical in t, lateral game bags dress up military waistcoats and the iconic lederhosen are translated through a deconstruction of contrasting materials.
Vegetable tanned leathers, cashmeres, cottons, and linens take center stage, highlighting the care given to details and nishes. Oxidized iron ties, handmade topstitching and die-cut moun- taineering soles emphasize the focus on artisanal work and hyper-functionality which remain the trademark of Boris Bidjan Saberi. Combining his streetwear in uences with those of his native Bavaria, the designer challenges traditional menswear silhouettes by expressing a unique perspec- tive of his origins.
Heimat clearly displays Boris Bidjan Saberi’s strong hand and maturation.After the growth of his additional line, 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi and his recent inclusion as a member of the Federation Francaise de la Couture, the designer presents the brand’s rst steps into the world of per- fumery.The launch of a collection of artisanal candles and fragrances will be followed by the debut perfume developed with Geza Schoen and inspired by Boris Bidjan Saberi’s emblematic vegetable tanned equine leather.
