SADAK's current collection, SS-2011 "I'm a good socialist" began in 1960s Ex-Yugoslavia but has developed both thematically and aesthetically into the future. Influenced by Kovacevic's various cultural experiences, he is able to abstract and meld elements of past, present and future. "I'm a good socialist" illustrates SADAK's fascination with mysticism, fantasy and science fiction. The clothes are cinematic. The use of sharp metallic colors, transformable jackets, and geometrical shapes allude to the future while the use and eventual restructuring of traditional costume patterns alludes to the past. Although SADAK is concerned with both the past and the future, the clothes always return to the present through the natural poetry and shape of the body. There is movement in both the clothes themselves and the bodies that inhabit them. The various and ever-changing layers of the clothes lend themselves to both movement as well as sculpture. SADAK always offers elements of surprise and the idea of illusion is an overarching theme in "I'm a good socialist". Playing with ambiguity of pattern, shape, and aesthetic reference while maintaining roots in a specific historical, social, and traditional context defines the creative vision of SADAK. photos:Daniel Bolliger- Samo Models: www.izaio.de PAUL@IZAIO ISABELLA@IZAIO SAVANNA@IZAIO MARLENE@IZAIO HUINAN@IZAIO and Justin F.Kennedy,Ramon Tamot
About the Designer
Sasa is based in Berlin, Germany. He studied at Kunsthochschule-Berlin and graduated in 2010. His collections are produced in Germany.
Sadak is the ancient name for a traditional sleeveless jacket worn in some regions of the Balkans. The preserved magical meaning of sadak in its original oral and visual context is transformed and adapted to contemporary reality. I incorporated a variety of elements from proceeding periods, together with the clothing features of the period when they were made and worn, often using the mystical and poetic stories.
The most important message SADAK wants to communicate is: pride in individuality
The clothing is innovative and unique, while still incorporating distinctive elements from a variety of preceding periods and ethnic cultures. The various inspirations for the collections are essentially what makes them so superior in character. It’s not only the collection as a whole that comes with a motive, it’s the individual works themselves.
Always at the core of his universe (and as essential as the clothes themselves) are attitudes, moods and statements about individuality and independence. Equally important in SADAK’ s approach is the constant quest for innovation. The key elements stay the same: modern proportions, a constant research for fabrics and textures and above all the interplay of pure construction and new shapes with the body and psyche of the contemporary fashion and art.
