Zsigmond Dora / Zsigmond Dora Menswear / Obscure AW21

Inspiration:
In 1950’s Hungary, the land-owning peasantry called ‘kulaks’ were prosecuted by the communist regime. During this decade of terror, 300 000 kulaks were forced to leave their lands. The new collection “OBSCURE” is dedicated to their silent history. ⁠The loosely enveloping, angular silhouettes are reminiscent of kulak clothing, while quilted and patched fabrics mirror divided lands. Prints designed in collaboration with Hungarian tattoo artist Áron Dimén are a take on anti-kulak propaganda posters from the time.

Materials and techniques:
Barbed wire-like patterns are applied by hand with paint rollers originally used for painting the walls of rural homes in Hungary. As a finishing touch, gesture-like strokes of paint brushed on by hand give muddy textures to fabrics.
