January // TwelveTwelve Calendar

DERZEIT's calendar - TWELVE for 2012 - opens with a look of Lala –Berlin's Spring/Summer collection 2012 worn by Ani K of Iconic Model Management.

The white outfit and the glacial structures refer to this month's freezing temperatures in the Northern hemisphere. The striking green tomato recalls the death of Tunisian vegetable seller Mohamed Bouazizi on January 4th, 2011. He doused his body in petrol and set himself alight in December 2010. His aim was to protest against the Tunisian government and state authority: The police had confiscated his goods when he had no valid selling permit. His death is widely seen as one of the key actions which set off the “Arabian Spring”.
– 
The term January derives from the ancient Roman god “Janus” by the way – this double-faced mythical figure is known as the god of doors and portals and thus of beginnings, transition. That's why you see glaciers in the background flowing from one door to the other.
– 
So let's see what's going to happen in the next 364 days to come in 2012!


 


All calendar images of TWELVE show fashion by Berlin-based designers worn by up-and-coming New Faces from all over Germany. The collages merge mythological references with symbols of incidents that took place in 2011 and people who passed away. Alongside you'll find fragments of stones connected to each month.
