TZar Spring Summer 2015 1760 Collection Lookbook - BellaNaija - December 20150013

Nigerian menswear fashion brand, Tzar owned by Ian Audifferen, is here with a collective of pieces from their Spring/Summer 2016 collection titled – “1760“.

The collection has been created with inspiration from art and personal experiences. According to Ian – “For my Spring Summer 16 collection titled ‘1760’ – a number but more importantly my identity for a certain gruesome period in my life spent in a remote part of Western Nigeria.

The experience from this time and Alberto Burri’s work on Sacchi mesh to explain this somewhat traumatic timeline. The collection is a visual and emotional interpretation of my habitation in that environment. The predominant colour being blue emphasizes the difficulty in accepting the change I had to endure, an inflexible mindset. But then over time, after much cogitation, I reckoned that embracing the situation and creating my own acceptable version of reality would be the better option.

With hues in brown depicting the long dusty roads he walked, the collection also has loose silhouettes of oversized burlap-esque linen shirts with exaggerated sleeves and distressed necklines exuding a sense of despair.

    iphone photography lol, I like the cuts of SOME of them, but
    1. I know the fabric will be crap
    2. Will rather spend bigger money on the actual designers he copied it from.

    The indigo fabric and patterns have already been done. I like the slippers tho, but where in Nigeria could I wear them besides someone’s marbled floor? I wish the majority of our designers could come up with good quality clothes that are marketable both in AND out of Nigeria. No one outside will buy because they’ve already seen it before. No one inside will buy because they just don’t get it.

    I LOVE THIS COLLECTION & the story telling behind it. I love that the designer stands out & allowed his creativity to flow, especially when you compare it to the same ol crap/trends you see out there. Question though… He looks Yoruba so I’m a bit confused at the name Ian Audifferen?… Is that his given name or he chose it for himself? That’s the whitest, Austrian name EVER!!’

    A lot of BN commenters think they know everything when they don’t. When it comes to fashion and design, the comments leave me baffled. Instead of ignorant and myopic criticism, all you can come up with is comments like “Na so crase dey start”. The truth is that one must possess a good understanding of art & design to appreciate these pieces. He’s not perfect but he’s definitely a diamond in the rough. Keep at it ninja… one day your clothing will adorn the backdrop KS of many influential people. Also, the photography while not perfect, suits the aesthetic of the clothes.
