ABOUT BRAND

www.tobiaswistisen.com

For Tobias Wistisen designing jewelry is a balancing act pushed to its most extreme limit. Born in Denmark and trained at ESMOD in Paris, he gained his first industry experience working in the design studio of John Galliano.
His work represents a combination of these two influences, taking the high drama of Parisian Haute couture and the anarchistic approach he developed at Galliano, and then applying it to the rigorous functionalism and craftsmanship of Scandinavian design.
While his background in apparel design enabled Wistisen to develop a keen and unorthodox approach to materials and form, he was eventually drawn to accessory design because it enabled him to develop a hands on approach to design.
All materials are meticulously treated by hand, ensuring that each piece is totally unique and made to the highest quality. And yet, in spite of all of this detailed precision, his work pursues a rough, aggressive, and worn aesthetic.
Metals are often subjected to aging processes, and materials are chosen for the way the change and develop personality over time. Inspiration ranges from futuristic vehicles to ancient armours, all sourced to produce a decidedly strong vision of masculinity.

YOHJI YAMAMOTO
JUNE 28, 2012PARIS
By Matthew Schneier
“Bruised defiance” would make a nice subtitle for aYohji Yamamoto autobiography. The designer, so instrumental to the rise of Japanese fashion in the 1980′s, has fallen out of the center of fashion’s conversation—and into bankruptcy and back—in recent years, but never given up the fight. Bruised defiance was certainly the look he courted tonight, when he sent out models with black eyes and cuts on their faces. On they soldiered, and so does he. But it was hard not to notice that, though the room was full, attendance among American editors was at an all-time low. (Retailers, for the record, were somewhat better represented.) Those absent missed a solid, likable show, the main message of which was volume: billowing, shortened pants, mostly, tied off at the bottom or gathered with elastic, complemented with two-button jackets or long, thin coats. The colors were unusually lovely, too, in combinations like salmon and orange, or salmon and creamy sky blue. Still, it felt like Yohji doing Yohji. A few more surprises might help to lure some of those editors back.
