verena-schepperheyn-2017-spring-summer-collection-5Verena Schepperheyn’s work is following the Japanese ‚Wabi Sabi‘ concept of impermanence. Implementing the idea of showing a certain stage of a process in every collection, this season is a reinterpretation and evolution of past conceptual elements and shapes. Major references have been the work of the contemporary artists Oscar Murillo, Joe Bradley and Josh Smith this season. Their oil works on canvas are abstract, large-scaled and float geometric shapes, scribbled patches, lines, and other marks that seem casually made. Inspired by this approach and the intensity of the colors and techniques used, the textiles and prints of Spring/Summer 17 were created; incorporating an occasional pop of bright color into the otherwise largely monochro¬matic compositions. The collection for Spring/Summer 17 ranges from shirts, T-shirts, knitwear, shorts, trousers and sweaters to jackets, presented in tones of blue, black, white, green, purple and grey.
