Collection – The 36th of May

The 36th of May

Throughout the creation of this work, the aim was to reach an aesthetic which does not draw reference to any particular tradition or culture. But instead pays tribute to many, to all, to those which exist and are yet to be defined as one.

Parallels to the idea of the hybrid in its purest form were found in the Art Nouveau and the Ver Sacrum movement, which defined a technique of using padded ornamental shapes to support bias cut drapery.

The 36th of May is an idea of escapism, a hidden place on its own terms.
It is a yearning for a cosmopolitan rhythm within a backward world.
A liaison among diverse cycles.
And a daydream amidst realities darkness.

Jegor Pister graduated from the BA Fashion Course at Central Saint Martins in 2017. In regard to Design in general, Jegor believes that Fashion must not, but can be a useful tool to communicate the essence of modernity. And as a Creator, he sees it as his task to challenge tradition for the sake of its dogmatic existence. If Jegor had to describe his way of doing so, it would be by the endless search for a new form language based on spontaneity.
