LAZOSCHMIDL Designer profile.

Meet Josef Lazo and Andreas Schmidl, the design duo and power couple injecting a heavy dose of homoeroticism and queer flamboyance into the menswear scene.
Photography Laura Allard-Fleischl

Alongside being a creative duo, you’re also a couple. How did this dimensional relationship begin to blossom?

We’ve been together for over ten years now and were both involved in different fields of fashion; design and journalism. We decided to collaborate for the first time on the occasion of Josef’s graduation thesis that was designed as a DIY book, telling the history of his origins that inspired the collection. The book came with a pair of scissors and each page had to be cut open to discover its content. This made us realise that we enjoyed the conceptual design process, merging our educational backgrounds and skill sets. Andreas was writing about fashion at this time and looked at design from a pop-cultural, art-historic and social perspective. Being inspired by a huge Gilbert & George mural in New York, we decided to start our artistic collaboration and created the first capsule collection together that explored the fetishisation of body liquids in contemporary art.
