Swiss menswear designer Julian Zigerli releases his AW16 lookbook to accompany the ‘Larger Than Life’ collection as shown in Paris. The Julian Zigerli AW16 collection ‘Larger Than Life’ is an intimate insight into Julian’s life – largely inspired by the nostalgia of early family memories from his childhood in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Playing on the mood of this prevalent time period, Julian has worked from a broad selection of references and sources – personal clothing items, family photographs and familiar cartoon characters have all featured as inspiration.
Recognisable colours and shapes of the era are translated via vibrantly rich wools in primary colours and deconstructed digital prints originating from vintage garments – all offering a direct window into a warm family environment. As a result, the ’Larger Than Life’ collection emphasises the importance family and friends have for us all, completed with a nod to everyone harbouring a kind fondness of the not so distant past.
