SARIVALENCI autumn/winter 2018 collection ”ZARDOZ” revolves around the struggle to find balance between being rational and emotional. It represents the contradiction between decadence of 70’s interior design and hight-tech futurism. It is a reaction against sleek mid-century modernism in favor of playful embellishment and radical experimentation with form. Being rational is about achieving perfection and being emotional is all about embracing imperfection. With this collection we wanted to combine different elements that at first sight don’t make sense rationally but feel right emotionally.
Strong, well-tailored pieces, which textile and silhouette derive from very popular padded chairs from the 70’s era symbolize perfection, in opposition to rough street wear segments which represent immperfection. Each garment is a form of hybrid that resonates the nature of human's every day objects and technology. Through a combination of furniture design and Western fashion elements, these new conceptions are exhibited through associated colors, fabrics and craftsmanship in the form of clothing and accessories.
