Janis’s self-claimed prophecy to fashion comes as no surprise when you take a peek at his brand new collection entitled Self Destruct. A mish mash of textures and graphic pattern, the largely monochrome collection embodies the vibe of street chic with an edge. Flashes of purple ignite against sharp greys and blacks, teamed with skinny black jeans and oversized coated outerwear. This collection is the urban guy’s kryptonite, with a nod to fashion in every single piece of the collection Janis has blurred the lies between high fashion and street wear in a rare union, resulting in a strong mix of edgy shorts with patterned tights and teaming matching printed tops. The collection’s overall vibe is that of an understated fashion pack elite, who prefer to hide the flamboyances with tailored strong silhouettes and a timeless black and white combo that doesn’t scream fashion, but quite simply says it all.

Talk less and let the work talk for itself. If you have a perfect picture in mind of how things are supposed to be, the chances you would be disappointed at the result are 99%. We do not live in perfect world! We are born unique, but most die as ordinary. I guess every people come to the point in their lives where they want to stand up for their rights, values and vission. Once you realize it, you look to the world and people around from different point of view! The turning point for me was when I understood that the system is pushing me to do the things according to the rules. I felt that I am loosing myself to the system. I had to stop, rethink and take control over what I really want - to be the creator, not the product of the environment. Art is the only way to escape the system. It gives you moments of freedom!These moments do inspire to push further, not to lose that young kid, who wants to change the world to be a better place. That's why my works deep inside are agressive, futuristic and in some way - screaming for revolution and changes!
I did not choose fashion. Fashion chose me!
