Schepers Bosman took the work of Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers (1827-1921) as the starting point for F/W19. 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 building elements by the use of colour, material and template prints, was translated by Schepers Bosman into a collection.
Seams and finishings have been made visible and treated as decoration. Pattern parts are emphasized by placing different materials and colours next to each other. After research at the Cuypershuis, the decoration templates archive was used as a source for handmade patchworks and vinyl prints. Minimal construction versus decoration.
The collection consists of voluminous overcoats, silk finished trousers, oversized shirts, detailed sweaters, overalls and handstitched scarves. These items are made of silk, crepe wool, mohair, Japanese nylon, corduroy and heavy tricots. The AW19 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.
