Boris Bidjan Saberi goes half human, half machine for SS17.
The Barcelona-based, German-Persian designer Boris Bidjan Saberi was quick to clear up one potential misunderstanding: Those Hannibal Lecter metal mouth shields are not a statement about freedom of expression. Actually, it’s all about aesthetics and the complications of technological advancement.
The Post-Humanism collection from the Boris Bidjan Saberi SS17 is a real match, yet mix between humans and machines. Self-made pieces showed a strong man entering into a new world made of fire. The warm color palette brought us back to the aesthetic that has been present during the previous seasons, the metal story played out as a study in color and texture as they relate to what happens when metal weathers the elements.
Latex, vinyl, and wax treatments brought interesting textures the silhouettes, defined by wrinkled drop-crotch trousers and the complex, architectural jackets and coats. Sleeveless trenches were razor-sharp, while laser-cut vests with modular linings were paired with thermo-sealed canvas parkas with metallic taped seams. Even large openwork knits were dyed to resemble metal mesh.
