The Fall/Winter Men's 2016 collection entitled "BLURRED VISION," designed by Loris Diran explores the relevance of athletic themes as they intermix within the ready-to-wear arena.. Loris pairs his offerings with updated tailored staples and sprinkles the whole collection with distinct military details. The collection is cut from unlikely textiles such as graphic wool double knits, optical jacquards, neoprene, technical performance nylon and fantasy tweed. Blurred limes and broken patterns reflect a sense of vague memories and distant dreams.
Diran marches ahead with his 'New Look': Uber soft, pre-wash suiting sans padding and stiff interfacing yet he maintains a slim defined silhouette. With this in mind the collection presents a distinct juxtaposition of sportswear to sartorial traditionalism,.
The collection pairs pieces atypically to create a new sensibility.
Designer Loris Diran is of French-Armenian descent and immigrated to America at an early age where his family settled on New York's upper west side. Highly influenced by the glam culture of the 1970's, he was drawn to music, theatre and fashion and attended New York's High School of Performing Arts. Afterwards he performed on Broadway and appeared on Capital records as a recording artist.
After earning a Fine Arts degree from NYU, Diran went on to work for such legendary design houses such as Versace, Claude Montana, OMO Norma Kamali, and Chanel. It was at these institutions Diran learned the key elements of style and embraced luxury as a lifestyle concept.
His designs have been worn by BEYONCE KNOWLES, NE-YO, RICKY MARTIN, JONATHAN RHYS MEYER, NICOLETTE SHERIDAN, SOFIA MILOS, BRITNEY SPEARS, LIEV SCHREIBER, and ANDREW McCARTHY and his designs were featured in "The Devil Wears Prada" starring Meryl Streep.
This prestigious assembly of notable names and associations combined with Loris Diran's growing presence in the design community earned him an invitation to debut his collection on the runways of Milan as a guest of VOGUE ITALIA and MILANO UNICA in September 2010.
Designer Loris Diran has expressed "I love my family, my firends, and all the adventures life throws me into. My life is about living, loving, and laughing.... Without these things, there is nothing!
