To call Julian Zigerli one of my favorite menswear designers is an understatement. Not only do I live for his patterns + silhouettes, I love the fun he has with his designs. Take this amazing ‘Shadow Blazer’ + ‘Shadow Pants’ as a for instance.
The ‘Shadow Blazer’, made of 100% cotton, has a strategically placed all-around print, giving it that trompe l’oeil effect, which never gets old.
Single breasted with a hidden button closure + sleeves with vent details, it also features piped pockets to hips. Compliments are definitely guaranteed when wearing this jacket. But other than just print placement making this jacket special, it’s the overall look of it that really caught my eye. I just adore how the edges of these lines look like someone painted them on a wet jacket, giving it that bleeding or spreading effect.
The ‘Shadow Pants’ really pop with this print. Also made of 100% cotton, these pants have a straight fit, complete with five pockets + a waistband with belt loops.
The stitched heart on back pocket, is a sweet touch, don’t you think? But the best part of these separates is how great they look together or on their own to add that extra punch to any ensemble. Overall, both pieces look like a living breathing 2D sketch, brought to life by pairing them with cool footwear + tops.
