VICTOR VON SCHWARZ: EL FÍN
by Slippage Magazine
Victor von Schwarz, a designer who lives between Barcelona and Taipei, continues his personal brand after four years after completing his studies in fashion and tailoring in Spain. After a period of work on the design team of Manuel Bolaño, Josep Font and Bibian Blue, he has collaborated with brands like H&M, Fucking Young and Velux.
In an uncertain social context where the culture of "using and throwing away" reigns, we can expect an exponential growth in pollution rates and environmental destruction. In this technologically advanced society, we find ourselves surprisingly closer than ever to the apocalypse. This is the main influence for “The End”, the eighth collection created by Victor Von Schwarz where the brand aims to picture one its consequences: the death of Mankind.
This collection is structured in two parts: the prelude to this outcome and the death of humanity. The first segment includes cuts based on garments from the sixties and seventies. “Radioactive” inspired colors such as acid green, red and pink are staining a range of fabrics which includes tantalum, corduroy, silk, wool, poplin and fantasies. The second part is polychromatic and uses tulle and volatile fabrics with much more romantic and bulky cuts.
