Swiss-born menswear designer Julian Zigerli is probably one of the most exciting upcoming designers. With striking prints and witty designs he quickly made his mark on the international fashion scene. His collections he showed in numerous cities around the world, including Berlin, London, Paris, Seoul, Tokyo and Milan. In 2013 he was selected to exhibit at the legendary “Teatro Armani” during Milan Men’s Fashion Week – by iconic Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani himself. In 2012 and 2014 the label has won the renowned “Swiss Design Award”.
After graduating at the University of Arts in Berlin Julian Zigerli then returned back to his roots, Zurich, where he launched his eponymous label in 2010. Since then he has mastered to create an image with his clothes as do only a few. Zigerli’s characteristics are extravagant prints in striking colours he then transports on wearable pieces. For his prints the designer often collaborates with renowned artists such as with the German artist Katharina Grosse for his S/S 14 collection. Besides, his second line “All Time Favourite” he launched this year consists of everyday favourites such as shirts, backpacks or purses. Each item is made out of Swiss high quality fabrics that bring the standard of a basic piece up to a higher level.
Julian Zigerli would not be Julian Zigerli if he did not come out with a new collaboration this season. For his A/W 15 campaign Zigerli has engaged Swiss artist and Yellow-star Dieter Meier, the “father” of electro pop. The campaign was shot just around the corner of Julian Zigerli headquarters in Zurich, realised in front of the “Hardau”. In his A/W 15 collection luxurious materials take on subtle tones. As usual, Zigerli’s silhouettes are casual, but all with an edgy twist. Even if Julian Zigerli’s collections were already more colourful, yet his A/W 15 collection provides a brightening in the otherwise grey winter months.
