Design duo Ubi Sunt is comprised of Aidin Sanati and Moa Wikman. Sanati, a Persian raised in Sweden, met Wikman, a Swede, while working at a design studio in London. The name Ubi Sunt is a nod to the Latin phrase “Ubi sunt qui ante nos fuerunt”, which means “where are those who were before us?” This eye toward the past is evident in the quiet beauty of their designs, which reference both the elegance of Persia and the modern elements of Swedish design. Mercedes-Benz has chosen Ubi Stunt to highlight in their Talent for Talent project, which pairs a designer from each of their Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week cities and a film director to collaborate on a unique “lookbook” film. Below are a few select images of their Autumn Winter 2012 collection, as well as photos of their Spring Summer 2013 collection, from Mercedes-Benz Stockholm Fashion Week. We would raid our boyfriend’s closets for these menswear masterpieces! Which collection do you like better, A/W12 or S/S13? Discuss!
