While the sea and the runway may seem like polar opposites, German designer Boris Bidjan Saberi recently displayed his Spring 2014 ready-to-wear collection that boasted heavy nautical influences infused with his signature touch of avant-garde execution. While the collection still held true to Saberi’s affinity for loose-fitting tops, asymmetrical-cut jackets and unconventionally tailored trousers, the overall aesthetic of the range shared a close resemblance to the functional elements of seafaring garb. From ship-fittings and fishnets to garments that were directly inspired by traditional fisherman’s pieces, the collection took a mostly subdued approach with the majority of the pieces mocked up in either black or white with a notable presence of yellow playing a role as well. The technical influences of Saberi’s collection also saw the inclusion of recycled spinnaker sails that served as the foundation for “hoistable” raincoat and bomber jackets.
