"The inspiration for this collection came from pretty far away actually, but the collection was mostly about moulding my own produced leather," said Boris Bidjan Saberi after presenting his Spring Summer 2015 collection at Garage Lübeck. All types of leather were present in his collection, ranging from horse to kangaroo.
Bidjan Saberi paid much attention to his material choices. Besides using his own leather, the cashmeres, cotton and hand-knits were featured prominently.
"My focus has been on very opposite points, but I have tried to make military references."
Moulding his own leather evolved into big backpacks, again inspired by military style. Apart from the bags, he experimented with moulding even more, creating an impressive coat attached to the back of a suit jacket.
Kangaroo leather was not the only thing taken from Australia. His collaboration with the Australian musician Ben Frost functioned as the perfect background for the almost marching models.
Loyal as he is, Boris wanted to be sure all the journalists got the name of the designer he collaborated with for a part of his footwear collection right. It was Muñoz Vrandecic, the designer he first met when he was starting an accessories label called UCANFUCKW, with whom he created the perforated leather boots.
The leather boots, strong music and industrial look of Garage Lübeck had everything to create the military references the designer was aiming for.
