The red light district in Frankfurt, Washington Boulevard in Los Angeles, installation art by Keith Sonnier and Bruce Nauman. Neon signs, broken hearts and the search for fast and eternal love. Classics of gay culture re-contextualized. Velvet and silk, lipstick on cheeks, the taste of liquorice and raspberry ice cream. Freedom. Taste it and take a sip.

Based in Germany and Sweden, LAZOSCHMIDL works as an artists’ studio that unites the disciplines of fashion design and humanist arts. Each collection is developed from writing to drawing to garment. Their collections have been recognised for challenging norms and establishing new codes of dressing. Garments are produced in limited quantities, applying a couture mentality. Cropped, shrunken, hand-embellished – a collector’s collection.
LAZOSCHMIDL is founded by Josef Lazo and Andreas Schmidl. Their work has been featured in numerous international magazines such as 032c, HERO Magazine, L’Officiel Hommes, Interview Magazine and Vanity Teen.
