Julian Zigerli ‘THREESOME’ Spring / Summer 2018

Berlin Fashion Week! Julian Zigerli presented his Spring/Summer 2018 collection in Berlin. “Threesome” is a collaboration with fellow Swiss artists Manon Wertebroek and Christopher Füllemann. The three have been working together since January of last year, to set up the project that was now presented in Berlin as an exhibition. The end product can be understood as a “performative installation with a bit of fashion”. Its parts have been disassembled and consist of clothing, photography and sculpture. Photography by Darwin Stapel.

Berlin eyewear innovators Lunettes Kollektion and Julian Zigerli have paired up again for a special trio of intriguingly arty sunglasses made with an unusual technique — matte digital printing on the fronts and temples. The collection complements the collaborative work “THREESOME”.

Her work focuses on portraiture as a symbol and vehicle to explore questions of introspection, identity, social interaction, and emotion.
