Last but definitely not least, I am offering one more Paris fashion week F/w 11/12 treat from one of my favorite designers, Boris Bidjan Saberi. Even though this is a men’s wear line, the sizing of the garments drops all the way down to XS, providing us women a chance to explore the masculine side.
Boris’s latest collection A/W 11/12, was presented in what seemed like an old gymnasium with models appearing behind massive bleachers to present Saberi’s work. To emphasize the designers influences and sub-cultural background, hip hop beats pulsated the venue as skateboarders were performing tricks over a launch box in this dimly lit venue. The pieces had aesthetics common to Boris: Drape, texture, leather manipulation, and heavy detailing. Jus like in the S/S11 looks, the new collection featured experimentation with transparent leather, but this time introducing blood red transparency for the winter. A strong cohesive collection once again from Boris Bidjan Saberi, and I can definitely see myself purchasing a few pieces when it becomes available.
