For AUTUMN/WINTER 2019 contemporary unisex label SCHEPPERHEYN collaborates with MONTY PYTHON, paying tribute to their 50‘s anniversary. Original prints from their iconic video How not to be seen are combined with the clean design signature of the brand. Exploring the topic of coexistence, the collection pieces are inspired by Monty Python‘s humorous imagery emphasising on sustainability, craftsmanship and genderless aesthetics.
After showcasing her past collections at Copenhagen Fashion Week, London Fashion Week Men‘s and Amsterdam Fashion Week, this season designer Verena Schepperheyn continues to spread genderless vibes, merging tailoring with work-and streetwear.
Checked and padded materials are mixed with fabrics such as cotton shirting, organic jerseys, recycled denim and coated textiles. The sharp colour palette includes brick red, pink, black, navy, egg shell and green Cheetah. Knitted wool and printed silk scarfs, mini wallets and multi-loop belts complete the collection range.
The designer’s attention for extraordinary elements can be seen in the contrasting coloured lining, buttons or topstitching, the unusual cuff closure solutions and partially hidden pockets. Classical forms are being reconstructed by providing them with new contexts and modern proportions, combining between rough and refined – using carefully selected high-quality fabrics all manufactured in Germany.
