Recently we got pretty excited about Sasu Kauppi, a finish designer who graduated from St Martins in 2011. Our next “one to watch” is Russian talent Tigran Avetisyan who recently released his graduate collection supported by LVMH.

Although not exactly a denim collection, the attitude and feel definitely inspires denim surface and design. Worker style jackets, oversized tees and tops are smothered with matte black and white paint and slogans such as “No Jobs” and “Stop Dreaming.”┬áThe collection is a comment on today’s graduates and the lack of hope and work out there right now.

He also used re-purposed fabrics found hidden or thrown away, like basic toile and calico. The collection, pitched for S/S 14 release, is a spin-off from his debut show at St Martins.

Dazed digital asked him a few questions, so hop over to their website to find out more…
