Marius Janusauskas Spring / Summer 2018

#OneToWatch: Marius Janusauskas is a graduate of prestigious Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp who has been recognised on various international talents’ platforms for his intellectual take on both womenswear and menswear. Collections often reference art, literature and menswear and are perfectly fit on a female’s form. Balance of contemporary shapes, luxurious and innovative textiles are the key elements of the label’s identity. 

The collection marries “a wish-landscape”, mythopoetic categories and queer temporality. The refusal of a certain natural order opens up new possibilities for hope and diversity in the present moment. This celebration of the moment signifies utopian potentiality and an escape from the constraints of reality. The collection is inspirited by uniforms, Andy Warhol’s early hand-drawings and camouflage, which is this context is viewed as an artistic approximation of nature. The process of deconstruction of regular military, white collar and workers uniforms with soft silks and transgender body has progressed into creation of original garments. The suggestion of which is like an unregistered story or a poem.
