With his collection Leben, Figaro Awards 2020 Commercial Men’s finalist Christian Ríos reviews a black page in our history, Hitler’s Nazi Germany, in which, to the systematic murders of the gay, bisexual and lesbian community of that time, other ethnic and political groups were added.

For this reason, Leben is a tribute to the millions of people who died only because of their sexual orientation, victims of ruthless fanaticism. The tones of the hair reflect the different geographical origins, which together with the different haircuts and volumes show a different essence. Uniforms remind us of a rigid masculinity, a harsh aesthetic in features and hairstyles, with very marked haircuts to harden jaws, which is counteracted by the presence of excessive jewelry.
