For Spring/Summer, ’19 Verena Schepperheyn is looking at the relationship of presumed opposites by drawing inspiration from land art as well as urban art. Combining both and looking for intersections instead of differences was the chosen approach for this collection.
Observing their overlapping components, led to a playful connection between two different aesthetics. This season was influenced by the work of the artists Andy Goldsworthy and Christo & Jeanne Claude, who combine the beauty of nature with perspectives of urban life within their work. Their approach, including the usage of intense color and high-tech fabrics, inspired the creation of the SS19 textiles and hand-drawn print. The oversized silhouettes are referenced to the scale of the artist’s installations.
Verena Schepperheyn continues to spread genderless vibes within her new Unisex collection, presenting a number of oversized styles, merging tailoring with work-and streetwear. Stripes in the materials are combined with fabrics such as cotton, linen, premium jerseys, denim and coated textiles. The collection is working with color blocking in contrasting material combinations as well as topstitching details. The sharp color palette of aqua blue, black, navy, off-white, olive, orange and white is accompanied by an interplay of technical fabrics and natural textiles. Verena includes accessories to the collection range by adding a fanny pack and a sock design.
