Julian Zigerli has been honored with the Swiss Design Award

Julian Zigerli continues to translate playful, eccentric ideas into wearable, coherent collections. Over the past few years, he has developed a very clear position, which has matured into a strong and individual brand without losing the humour and lightness that characterises his approach.

Julian Zigerli will present his spring/summer collection 2017 at Berlin Fashion Week on July 1st 2016 at Erik-Hess-Eisstadion.

The second winner is the Berlin-based shoe label VELT

The Designer Stefan Rechsteiner and Patrick Rüegg have a passion for the timeless men’s shoe. The work 'Von Grund auf flexibel' has been awarded with the Swiss Design Award: the development of an adjustable sole reduces the number of production forms for a shoe from the usual fourteen (encompassing all shoe sizes) to five. This makes it possible to manufacture shoes in small lines an important production and design step for the further growth of shoe label VELT.

The designs of VELT will be presented at the Show & Order, at Kraftwerk Berlin Mitte (Köpenicker Strasse 70, 10179 Berlin) from June 27th to June 29th 2016, stand number L1.27.

Congratulations for the winners of the Swiss Design Award!
