The collection features an eclectic mix of colours and materials dressing the complete cast of a never-to-be-produced movie. Following the couple’s stops traveling Utopia, settings range from cheap hotel pools to fast food restaurants and Karaoke bars. A majority of outfits are tailored in swimwear fabrics made of recycled PET bottles allowing their future wearer to jump into the pool fully dressed. Cow-print ensembles, retro stripes and lurex glitter biker shorts underline the overall nostalgic vibe – while hand-dyed denim, sheer organza shirts and sequin applications add a touch of indulgence. We see the return of the iconic Lazoschmidl butterfly as well as a movie poster print by New York based photographer and painter Scott Csoke.
Spring/Summer 2021 continues the jewelry collaboration with Saskia Diez presenting cockring necklaces in rare crystals and stones – hand-carved and polished in a family-run stonecutters workshop in a small German town.
Like previous collections, almost every garment has been hand-sown in the Stockholm atelier, further manifesting the idea of in-house craftsmanship and artisanal production – and proving that independent brands like Lazoschmidl can fully realize their vision based on the marriage of two creative minds.
