In this editorial syn_ mixed selected pieces from two contrasting brands creating an interesting tension between the luxurious and the conceptual.
The brand ‘Bataille’ by the two designers Alexander Lamm and Julian Jāggi teases a forthcoming legacy of timeless classics and effortless luxury in a new age of rebellious resolutions. Inspired by the French philosopher Georges Bataille, the young brand seeks to fuse heritage with the gender neutrality of today’s non-binary world.
Contrasting the Brand ‘Personal Studies’ is a project created by trained architect and self-taught fashion designer Dimitris Karagiannakis as a means to expand the artistic expression in the field of fashion. Drawing inspiration from rationalist aesthetics and modernist architecture, the collections are utilizing material in a gestural nod towards both minimalist design and functional forms, defined by the materials and purpose of the item.
