Verena Schepperheyn's debut collection for Spring/Summer 2016 was presented during London Collections: Men.
Introducing her desire for textile manipulation, every pieces uniqueness is endowed by putting a special focus on color, embroidery, print and detail. Opposing streetwear influences and tail
oring techniques, there is a merge of classical menswear tradition with contemporary masculine ideals.
Major references are the work of the German Bauhaus associated artist Oskar Schlemmer, who was plotting the human body through clear and pure lines. As well as
the work of contemporary artist Navid Nuur, who is dealing with spontaneous material transformation. Taking those as inspiration for creating the textiles and the silhouettes,
the new collection frames the male body into lines. From the initial collage process, the layers merged into fragments, assembled by using different techniques such as
embroidery, stitching, embellishments and prints.
