Supersonic sound waves, incredible heights, supernatural speed. Life at the edge and between the elements.
“My Daddy Was a Military Pi lot”isn’t just the title of Julian Zigerli’s S/S 2013 collection. It is also the truth.
It is homage to a shark of the sky, built out of stories, memories and feelings.
It is not about the military but the rush associated with being a jet pilot. It is an idea of an incredible power released within you by the thought of flying with supersonic speed.
A feeling full of longing, solitude, power and dignity. Zigerli uses high-grade material, functional design and extraordinary printing, made out of collaboration with the Berlin artist Fabian Fobbe, to fuel the collection with a heroic character which literally repeals light from it.
A collection for a proud man who stays grounded in the past but still reaches for the stars.
