DZHUS is a conceptual womenswear brand launched in 2010 by Ukrainian designer Irina Dzhus.
While mainstream labels veil their marketing strategies with popular ideology, and their creatives speculate on trendy themes, in the effort to satisfy well-versed fashion insiders, DZHUS’ distinctive products come into the world without any purposive stimulation, they don’t need an exciting story in support, neither they pretend to be anything but unique yet perfectly wearable apparel designs.
DZHUS’ ingenuous and commercialism-free mastermind, Irina Dzhus, generates innovative cut systems, using nothing but her extraordinary ability of a thorough insight into the complex structure of the ambient and a deep understanding of its architectonic potential. Comprehending metaphysics of the form and its antipode, volumes and silhouettes, surfaces and voids, contours and textures, the designer explores the possibilities of interaction of the surrounding space’s constitutive parts, from which her experimental constructions derive, as an alternative to them fashion conformism.
Natural denim, knit and felt used accentuate the technological essence of the smart avant-garde pieces by DZHUS. The niche brand’s signature industrial-looking finishes and austere monochrome palette also appeal to the conceptual cut, as a basis of DZHUS’ identity.
