WELTENBUERGER PRESENTS THE SUMMER 2014 COLLECTION OF JULIAN ZIGERLI, A SWISS-VIA-BERLIN DESIGNER WHOSE WORK PARTICULARLY HIGHLIGHTS WELTENBUERGER'S DEDICATION TO A SENSE OF FUNCTIONAL EXPERIMENTATION. FOR THIS COLLECTION, ZIGERLI HAS COLLABORATED WITH THE BERLIN PRINTMAKER KATHARINA GROSSE TO DELIVER A NUMBEROF SHIRTS, BLAZERS AND BOTTOMS DESIGNED OUT OF A PROCESS INVOLVING POWER SPRAYING FABRICS IN GESTURAL FORMS AND PATTERNS. FROM THESE STUDIO PROCESSES, THE RESULTING PATTERNS ARE THEN DIGITALLY PRINTED ON HIGH-QUALITY FABRICS SUCH AS SILK AND WOOL. THESE PIECES CHANNEL A SPONTANEOUS, FLOWING EXUBERANCE WHERE COLOR AND GESTURE UNITE AS ONE, EXPOSING A PLAYFULNESS THAT IS IMMEDIATE YET CAREFULLY EXECUTED. THE COLLECTION’S DUAL-MINDED INTERACTION BETWEEN CRAFT AND EXPERIMENTATION IS A HALLMARK OF ALL WELTENBUERGER PIECES AND REPRESENTED DESIGNERS.
