Julian Zigerli’s AW13 Collection “Happy Tears” is inspired by the concept
of Tears of Joy. These so called “Happy Tears” shoot through our veins
like free flowing dopamine and leave us comfortably cringing. The prints,
cuts and materials from this collection are reminiscent of the feeling of
coming home and at the same time letting go. This intimately familiar
laugh echoes through our memories.
Prints made from magnetized iron powder and inked veins support the
feelings of power, agitation and liberation. Electrifying layouts contrast
the languorous high-quality materials and in turn deliver extreme comfort
in winter through their practical functionality.
