Functionality meets the avant-garde with Boris Bidjan Saberi and Salomon
Salomon x 11S di Boris Bidjan Saberi: 'ATHLETIC BOULDERING'. Functionality meets avant-garde.
Boris Bidjan Saberi, a menswear designer of German-Persian origin, was born on 11 September 1978 in Munich, Germany. His original background played a key role in defining his fashion philosophy, combining Western and Middle Eastern traditions, form and formlessness in clothing, and a deep affinity for numerology. The number '11' represents a symbolic pillar for his brand and inspired the name of Saberi's additional line.
In 2016, the extraordinary collaboration between Salomon and Boris Bidjan Saberi resulted in 'Bamba 1', a piece based on the Speedcross silhouette. This innovative design made its debut at Paris Fashion Week SS17, alongside four exclusive pieces dyed with objects. Since then, 11S - Boris Bidjan Saberi and Salomon have maintained their collaboration, constantly introducing new models each season and making their products available through major shops worldwide.
For the first time, this partnership has extended to footwear, clothing and backpacks, introducing a unique 'Athletic bouldering' concept. This collection draws inspiration from Salomon's rich tradition in mountain sports and outdoor athletics, combined with Boris Bidjan's passion for climbing. The result is a distinctive design language that harmonises the specific needs of bouldering with the functionality of outdoor equipment.
What makes this collaboration truly exciting is that the concept was developed in collaboration with legendary climber Fred Nicole and the renowned So Ill brand, creating an extraordinary fusion of expertise in the world of outdoor sports and fashion. Immerse yourself in this unique partnership, where fashion, functionality and bouldering emotions come together.
Inspired by a passion for bouldering, the 11S FOOTWEAR A.B.1. embodies an incredible synergy between aesthetics and functionality in this sport, all encased in an unparalleled upper. A combination of visual cues and practical solutions permeates both the upper and the choice of materials. This latest stage in the prolific collaboration between Salomon and Boris Bidjan Saberi embodies an extraordinary duality, marrying aesthetic exploration with athletic performance excellence.
The 11S JACKET A.B.1 is a prime example of this philosophy, offering waterproof and breathable protection thanks to GORE-TEX technology, and incorporating functional features in an experimental design typical of BBS.
In the product range of the collaboration between Salomon and Boris Bidjan, you will also find other items, including the 11S TOP A.B.1, the lightweight 11S PANT A.B.1 trousers, and finally the A.B.1 backpacks ideal for longer outings and self-drive expeditions that require technical equipment.
