Collections: Zsigmond Dora Autumn / Winter 2017
Happy Easter guys! Today I've got for you one of the collections that I have recently seen at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Budapest - Zsigmond Dora menswear for Autumn / Winter 2017 season. Speaking of the the inspiration for the collection, it was found in the legendary Hungarian movie director, Miklós Jancsó’s outstanding creation, The Round-up.The magical world of the one-time outlaws of Hungary was as inspirational as the pictures, the generous treatment of the huge spaces, the relationships of the characters and the movement of the masses.
The film that served a basic motivation for Dora was made in the middle of the 1960s, ten years after the Hungarian Revolution of 1956. The political parallel and the (not so) hidden message is obvious and for Dóra it recalls today’s political situation as well.
The fresh collection is for the urban, modern man and its pieces are characterized by layers and warm materials. Just as we can see in The Round-up, the collection also exists of clothes piled-up on each other, raw materials and rough textures. Wool plays an important role as jackets and pullovers. As usually, Dóra’s work contains rich and characteristic surfaces, textures and exciting details. The mood of the collection is defined by the fur embroidery. Water-repellent materials that were captured in the movie as kent jackets are now reborn as clothes of the new urban men’s wardrobe. As a primary viewpoint the clothes are functional and comfortable as well as unique. Functionality appears in well-combined pieces and removable linings, adjustable width, variable layers and reversible pieces. Details also call back the inspirational basic: the lettering of the lining „CLOSED” symbolizes the imprisoned outlaws of the movie.
The brand is known for it rich hand-made details and techniques that appear in this season as well. Color-wise we see the shades of green and grey, black, beige, powder pink and silver details. Puritan and simple colors dominate in the whole collection.
