the fox and the grapes
Heinrich Brambilla, Zürich
As a collection, «the fox and the grapes» reflects the designer’s aspiration to create an elegant fashion style that will stand the test of time, one that is emancipated from the short-lived trends of the fashion industry. A confrontation with the cultural history of fashion, and the consistent development and refinement of an original cutting technique, formed the basis for the design of a collection characterised by sharp silhouettes that cling to the body and a volume of clothing that deliberately hangs loose. The main decorative elements of «the fox and the grapes» that stand out are the consciously positioned lines of the cut.
