Boris Bidjan Saberi Spring Summer 2014 Sailorism
Boris comes through strong this spring with an array of fabrics and some very interesting details. Now Boris has always had his roots firmly planted in the streetwear and hip hop. It appears much more evident this season as he continues to move towards a more relaxed and casual fit.
Not to say Boris is forsaking his own cultivated look but you can see a noticeable progression from his first collection to this. Each collection builds on that dark layering he debuted in 2007. Now we are seeing a much more refined Boris with less ragged silhouettes and a multitude of shades.
Seeing such a range of fabrics introduced to a BBS collection has me very intrigued based on his alchemical ways. I’m wondering how many of these fabrics were designed in house. This is usually the kind of thing that traps me in to obsession with a designer and as Boris continues creating I see parts of Carol Christian Poell in his methods. Trust me that is the highest of praise.
The few gripes I have with this collection are that I’m not seeing any leather jackets, but it’s spring summer so I guess they aren’t necessary on the runway. Hopefully we do see some in production though. As well that orange color is too abrasive for me but I could see it be worn well when layered.
All in all this is a very strong effort by Boris and continues down the right path. I see tons of stuff I want right off the bat and that is always a good sign. I’ll be posting the video soon hopefully because seeing many of these garments in motion solidified my appreciation for this collection.
