SCHEPERS BOSMAN FW2019 at The Royal Waiting Room by architect Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921)
Schepers Bosman took the work of Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921) as the starting point for fall-winter 2019. Besides the Rijksmuseum and the Amsterdam Central Station, his work also includes numerous churches. He made architecture, more than that he designed buildings. Emphasizing or concealing the building’s elements by the use of color, material and template prints; was translated by Schepers Bosman into a collection.
Seams and finishings have been made visible and treated as decoration. Placing different materials and colors next to each other emphasizes pattern’s patches. After research at the Cuypershuis, the decoration templates archive was used as a source for handmade patchworks and vinyl prints. Minimal construction vs. decoration.
The collection consists of voluminous overcoats, silk finished trousers, oversized shirts, detailed sweaters, overalls and hand-stitched scarves. These items are made of silk, crepe wool, mohair, Japanese nylon, corduroy and heavy tricots.
The Royal Waiting Room
The fall-winter 2019 images are shot in the Royal Waiting Room at the Central Station of Amsterdam. The space designed by Cuypers was specially opened for this occasion, so that the collection is immediately placed in the image of the inspiration.
