Menswear designer Tzar is out with an amazing lookbook for Spring/Summer 2015, here’s what he had to say about this collection.
“For my Spring Summer 16 collection titled ‘1760’ a number but more importantly my Identity for a certain gruesome period in my life spent in a remote part of Western Nigeria. The experience from this time and Alberto Burri’s work on Sacchi mesh to explain this some what traumatic timeline. The collection is a visual and emotional interpretation of my habitation in that environment.The predominant colour being blue emphasizes the difficulty in accepting the change I had to endure ,an inflexible mindset but then over time after much cogitation I reckoned that embracing the situation and creating my own acceptable version of reality would be the better option. Hues of Brown/Beige depicting long dusty roads I walked daily lined up with navy coloured kiosks selling the indigenous indigo-dyed fabric. Loose silhouettes of oversized burlap-esque linen shirts with exaggerated sleeves and distressed necklines exuding a sense of despair.”
