BRIU HOMME SS ’14: “HUMAN INSTRUMENTALITY”
“It derives from a culmination of beliefs as a human entity,” says Jonathan Briu, the founder of the eponymous street couture label Briu Homme as he describes the inspiration behind his SS ’14 line. “Each individual look is a piece of instrumentality, leading up to the final stage of the project of human instrumentality” which fittingly acts as the name for the entire collection.
You see, for Briu, Human instrumentality “is to create an existence where nobody exists singularly, but merely as part of the whole. In Instrumentality, the flaws in every living being would be complemented by the strengths in others.” But flaws within the line are few and far between - and as for complementing the line itself, Briu is releasing a short film called “Fractured: Light & Void,” directed by Maps Glover.
Eerie, dark, and twitchy, the black and white visuals are set to a voiceover that raises questions about structure, composure, and change.
