Designer Olivier Borde

30 05 2009


Not too many guys are fashion forward enough to sport designs by Olivier Borde but I know Ye’ would do it. I love it! It does not happen all too often, yet, every now and then comes a man along who can catch you by surprise that he understands ones needs, as well as aesthetics. One of these rare men is definitely Olivier Borde, who lives, works and practices magic by drawing collections you simply must feel, touch, and ultimately owe in Paris where he also improved his craft with Charles Anastase, amongst others.
His first [Garde-Robe] A/W 2008 collection was unveiled at the International Festival d’Hyeres in April 2008 and was said to be “reinventing the classics of male fashion” in an “artistic and poetic tradition”. Judged but no one less than Ricardo Tisci, Maria Luisa, Haider Ackermann and Patti Wilson. Does all this sound common in terms of the branche for a talented newbie? Well, it absolutely isn’t. Young Mister Borde still remains as mysterious, introverted and oriented to let it all flow naturally, as on day one. Plus as talented. And men fashion has a new spokesman to expect things from.
Yatzer decided to search, find and chat with him about inspiration, aesthetics and graphic design. Yes, and fashion, too
