Boris Bidjan Saberi x Munoz Vrandecic

When Boris Bidjan Saberi was starting out as a designer, having settled in Barcelona, he came across the work of the Chilean artisan Miguel Munoz Wilson, the designer behind the Barcelona-based label Munoz Vrandecic. Saberi was smitten. He approached MV about collaborating, but it did not work out.

Ever persevering, Saberi came back years later with another offer that Vrandecic could not resist – just one pair of boots, no more, no less, designed and made together. I asked Saberi and Munoz about how this collaboration came about.

RELEASE – In memory of Yohan Serfaty

During fashion week in Paris, designer Yohan Serfaty’s label Y. Project held an intimate gathering to commemorate the late designer and his work. Held at the beautiful site of the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme, the event featured an installation where a few of Serfaty’s garments were placed on top of high ladders, dimly lit from the inside. In a pitch-dark room, a powerful video was playing on a lone screen, showing tools and machines working in an almost ghost-like manner.
