Life and death
Black and white
In its collection, The End, zazo&brull addresses the current situation of our time; a time governed by uncertainty, a lack of time, connection with the world at a click of a button but also with an absolute individual loneliness.
An end is necessary for a new start.
For the first time, and only in Barcelona, zazo&brull presents its new collection for men; a collection with elements of the zazo&brull woman.
In this new venture, the designers seek to give the same importance to the design of the men’s and women’s collections, and so they have created a link in the design for both. This is the idea behind “twins”, the man-woman twins born out of a new age. Both have the same importance, the same responsibility, the same power. They are a new united figure, one single being.
The gap between the sexes is coming to an end.
The collection is based on two essential colours that symbolise the beginning and the end. Just as it should be, black and ecru are the prevailing colours.
The human figure is broken down into architectural volumes; the garments’ serigraphy, white on white and black on black, comes to life, although it is only noticed when light falls on the articles. These are treated with a gummed layer and a slight touch of gloss.
Natural fabrics are combined with technological textiles. Cotton, wool, faux suede, lamb leather, pleated tulle, pleated silk worked with as if it had flounces. Serigraphy inspired by architectural motifs and applied positionally to the garments.
The Barcelona-based sculptor Carles Piera Claramunt, in close collaboration with zazo&brull, suggests one of his latest sculptural experiments, volumetric representations.
Drawn geometric compositions are used to find light, define volumes and create the figure. Carles Piera bases his work on these preparatory forms to define the element in space and evoke new mutable shapes based on constantly moving fractals.
For the latest zazo&brull collection, based on change and the arrival of a new period for people, this confluence of sculpture and fashion will offer a completely new forward-looking vision.
