Last Thursday, 21st of June, Dutch fashion label Schepers Bosman presented their new collection from Paris, France. The Spring / Summer 2019 menswear collection is all about ‘being a tourist in your own city’. With their fashion design Schepers Bosman try to paint an image of a big city, with it’s unknown, undiscovered peripheral areas.
Schepers Bosman gathered exotic elements from their surroundings in Amsterdam, which is situated in the New-West part of the city. Fifties mosaics and murals found in that neighborhood have been translated into abstract prints and cast as a layer over Schepers Bosman’s modern, elaborated holiday wardrobe, Dutch fashion at it’s best.
All patterns and garments are designed, developed and manufactured in their own studio. Same goes for the prints, which are applied and embroidered both manually and mechanically. Except for nylon, the materials used for this collection are natural: satin cotton, silk, light weight denim and jersey.
