The fall-winter runway collection is for those who enjoy the urban environment, yet strive for sustainability, and want to reflect their individuality and their message with their appearance. They want to stand out and not stand out, thereby emphasizing their always bubbly but conscious lifestyle.
As a result, ZIA Budapest constantly strives to make the world easier and more livable - as far as a fashion brand can reach. Regardless of drop or collection, sustainability is a top priority for the brand, from the use of materials to the production processes and up to sales.
It was no different with the CITYLEGACY 2.0 AW '2223 collection, which of course was also accompanied by the brand's number one hallmark: thanks to the universal cut lines and clean style, the pieces are timeless. The high quality and agelessness allow the clothes to be an essential part of your wardrobe, even for life. The designer, Csizmazia Anett, went back to the roots of ZIA Budapest, so the collection was born from the fusion of basic pieces and bestsellers, combined with the ZIA Budapest vibe: classic, masculine pieces mixed with feminine and vintage elements, all in neutral and earthy colors, orange red and the delicate blue covered in its shades.
We were already well used to the brand's exciting oversized silhouettes, from which the creation of genderless pieces was just one step away. With the runway collection, three neutral looks made their debut, which were born from kimonos and signature materials, and enable the creation of an even more sustainable collection, which cannot be limited by anatomical differences.
What else makes a collection environmentally conscious? Starting this season, the brand has been thinking in terms of mini drops, to which only the two annual runway collections are an exception. These pieces are highly limited, and the premium materials are even more exclusive than usual, e.g. eco viscose, silk and boiled wool also appear. The materials come from Europe, and the design and production take place in Budapest.
CITYLEGACY 2.0 was presented to the Serbian public in the Slovenian capital, Ljubljana, at the Novi Sad Showcase and at the runway of Serbia Fashion Week.
