Lazoschmidl presented its Fall/Winter 2021 collection. Some pieces include naive cake paintings by Scott Csoke to reference that peculiar way we were dressed by our mothers when we were young, a very nostalgic moment from which the designer takes inspiration for this collection.
Based on this nostalgic moment, the designer states that this collection “is a reflection of things that have been lost and garments that have never been forgotten”. The cake paintings are reworked in the brand’s mixed-media couture knitwear, hand-embroidered with very special ‘emotional stress’ statements. Other elements such as corduroy ensembles, DIY denim, paisley prints, and kid’s toy appliqués are drawn by Humberto Cruz quote real-life memories.
In our dreams, we stand in front of our childhood closets picking out the pieces we want to wear to school. In our bedrooms, we gaze at mail order catalog mannequins and late-night TV programs. In our fantasies, we combine our re-imagined wardrobe with an adult-content-way of dressing. The remembrance of childhood is a playful and happy place for grown-up men to rediscover where the heart is.
