We sat down with fashion designers Fyodor Podgorny and Golan Frydman of the London fashion label Fyodor Golan to talk about the brand’s recent collaboration with Chupa Chups.
The designers described the pair-up as one of the “most intertwined collaborations we’ve ever done,” with the aesthetic and history of the confectionary brand fitting in naturally with the duo’s “heat wave” concept for the collection, through which they wanted to highlight themes of eco-consciousness.
“We wanted to take a consumable product and turn it into an ultimate item of luxury, something that you wouldn’t just discard.”
And you absolutely would not discard the beautiful pieces in this womenswear collection of skirts, shirts and dresses, that will hit retail in February.
“Even items that are not necessarily in your face Chupa Chups still have been influenced by the ethos of Chupa Chups as a brand, the products, the flavors, the colors, the history, the materials,
“For Chupa Chups, design has always been a key asset, so we are very excited to have Fyodor Golan’s privileged creative minds propose an embroidered and exquisite version of our brand elements in this fashion collection,” said Christine Cool, area licensing manager, Perfetti van Melle. “It is fascinating to see how they have made an artistic conception by fusing the brand icons with surprising materials and disrupting shapes.”
Stop by and see the collection yourself at Brand Licensing Europe Stand M10 this week.
