Swiss label WEER elevates basics for men and women, underlining the appeal of simple shapes while only using high-quality fabrics.
Inspired by 1990s films, such as Danny Boyle's Trainspotting, WEER's new collection finds its roots within the look of classic workwear, combined with the acid culture of the decade. Strong tones and reflection effects are key this season, from fluorescent orange and fuchsia pink to olive green and silver accents, balanced with white, black and pastel tones. Shapes are graphic and minimal – a WEER signature – from a short-sleeved army inspired jumpsuit to a straight hooded parka featuring silver buttons. Several garments are transformable, such as a long shirt dress with detachable sleeves or a short jacket with zippered panels. Pants are either skinny or relaxed, while military shirts are reinterpreted with a cape sleeve detail. Working mostly with cotton this time, designer Karin Lorez uses Swiss, Italian and Japanese materials, which she mixes with PVC and reflective fibers. Limited edition t-shirts are hand finished and treated to gain a rougher texture. Refining its signature styles, WEER continues its exploration of sleek and intelligent sportswear, mixing the practical with the conceptual.
