They’ve been touring Europe with their song “Halo”. And now ORF’s Eurovision team is looking to Turin. On Thursday the team behind Austria’s LUM!X and Pia Maria revealed the costumes that the duo will wear on stage at Eurovision 2022.
The press release makes it clear that the DJ and singer wanted to blur fashion boundaries, describing the looks as “New York street style meets futuristic romance and sporty informality.” We totally see it.
We’re pasting the entire press release below along with some photos for you to feast your eyes on. Enjoy!
Austria reveals LUMI!X and Pia Maria’s stage outfits
“Back In Black” is the motto for LUM!X feat. Pia Maria, the Austrian participants in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. The outfits they have chosen for the big ESC stage in Turin are similar to the styling in their music video for “Halo” and are predominantly black. They chose the designers of their outfits based on where they live: LUM!X, who currently lives in Milan, chose Italian stylist Andreas Mercante and Pia Maria is outfitted by the Tyrolean “Manufaktur Herzblut”.
LUM!X’s look is inspired by the streetwear style that emerged in New York in the 1990s and is all black: He wears a shiny vinyl fabric jacket, a matching shiny technical fabric t-shirt and comfortable pants from “44 Label Group”. Complement it with shoes by Bruno Bordese and handmade jewelry made of antique silver by nove25.
LUM!X says: “My outfit was put together by the famous Italian stylist Andreas Mercante and has a touch of 90s disco as well as classic streetwear elements. The sophisticated materials together with the shoes and the handmade accessories give my look a unique touch.”
The materials of Pia Maria’s stage outfit express special strength, reflect a harmonious silhouette and offer freedom of movement and comfort for the performance on the ESC stage. The designer pieces are made of technologically manufactured fabrics, faux prints and synthetic leather and are finished with appliqués, studs and crystals. The accessories, designed by Markus Spatzier, the designer of “Manufaktur Herzblut”, complete the look.
Pia Maria comments: “I came across “Manufaktur Herzblut” during the music video shoot for “Halo”. The pieces are extraordinary and have a high recognition potential. The stage outfit was individually designed and tailored for me – and was also created in collaboration with me. The materials and fabrics are great, the print on my top shows a body jewel that was already featured in the music video, and my absolute highlight is the jacket, which makes me feel really comfortable.”
They really don’t wanna qualify….
well – A: they got a great song so : B: they need good vocals…. C: we dont need Lumi!x vocals D: we want a good staging… they should focus on this… otherwise this will end just as a joke on stage…. cause they got one of the best songs 2022… Austria d be wise to make 2023 a good live selection show after this vocal drama
sadly it’s very bad 😀 reminds me of childhood when mama bought me some very random ‘fashionable, imported’ stuff from bazar. :DDD
Reveal good vocals instead. Outfits won’t save them.
That outfit doesn’t do Pia any favours, it doesn’t reflect a harmonious silhouette at all! But hey, if she chose it and feels comfortable with it, good for her.
“If she feels comfortable with it good for her”… and yet you’re her shaming her. Smh
That’s a nice trash bag material used there
They’re giving me unemployed gastarbeiter realness…
Post Black Friday in Primark couture
Looks a bit dated tbh. The dancers in the video are more appealing. Good luck though!
Not sure how these outfits stand out, but hopefully Pia Maria can improve her vocals by May
