Verena Schepperheyn AW 2018

Verena Schepperheyn introduces first genderless collection

The design was inspired by Verena’s grandparents. Verena has reviewed all the photo archives and the interior of her grandparents’ house where she has spent most of her childhood. All the clothing, photos and furniture she saw have been customized for this collection. Inspired and enhanced, Autumn/Winter 18 represents that mood within the collection by having a playful but classical approach to the design.
The print designs include collages made of the kitchen floor and old family pictures which were turned into new mottos and emblazoned on shirts and t-shirts with a vintage feel. Minimal, fluid pieces are paired with padded 3-D pockets. The collection presents a number of oversized styles, merging tailoring with work- and streetwear.
Checks in the materials, pattern cutting and placements are combined with fabrics such as cord, padded textiles, premium jerseys, wool, cotton, denim, cashmere and knitwear.

Verena Schepperheyn turns to colour blocking imbuing this in both techniques such as piping details and contrasting material combinations - all undeniable signatures of the brand. The sharp colour palette of black, burgundy, navy, brown, caramel, mustard and beige is accompanied by an interplay of technical polished fabrics and natural matt textiles.

Upon graduating from ArtEZ in Arnhem, Netherlands with an MA in Menswear, Verena Schepperheyn launched her eponymous label in Berlin. Techniques such as embroidery, prints and textile manipulation in combination with strong shapes are at the core of the brand’s spirit.
In her designs, Verena Schepperheyn likes to explore the boundaries between form and function. She reconstructs classical forms by providing them with new contexts and modern proportions. It‘s a constant research for fabrics and textures to develop a juxtaposition of rough and refined. In recent years, Schepperheyn has received the Premium Young Designers Award 2016 for the best Menswear Label and has been nominated for the German Design Award 2016 and the WGSN Future Award 2016 in the emerging brand category. Past collections have been showcased at Copenhagen Fashion Week, London Fashion Week Men‘s and Amsterdam Fashion Week.
