Paris, France – Boris Bidjan Saberi takes us deeper into his world of daring cuts and stiff movements. This season we see his pants cut far above the ankles and in both leathers and boiled wool.
I must say that I am enjoying very much the work that the designer is doing on his shoulders. A man can never look well done unless he has strong shoulders. And this is an area where the designer excels. Because of his love of fluidity and motion, it is at times easy to forget that he is a skilled tailor.
The looks feature short cut pants for most of the collection. We see them with low cut waist, in jumpsuits and even with button finishing. He takes the worker’s tablier (or work smith’s apron) and makes it urban for his clientele.
There are Japanese inspirations in the collection as well of course. We detect them more though his work on some of the coats. And of course Saberi includes modern cut suits with angular ends with high rising split-backs, and long knitwear pieces which allow him to create his look of layering.
COLORS: Black, off white and rusty-red.
