Schepers Bosman showcasing from Paris
Schepers Bosman is an Amsterdam based designer duo made up of Sanne Schepers (1989) and Anne Bosman (1988) which was formed last year in January. January 21st 2018, the duo showcased their new collection from the French fashion capital, Paris.
The inspiration behind the new Autumn / Winter 2018 collection is a merge between pop and avant-garde. With a Pop Art mind set, the duo started on the new collection taking inspiration from their surroundings. Images from the touristic side of Amsterdam, with classical forms taken from the Amsterdam School and flower paintings from the Golden Age.
The materials used for the collection are made up of cotton corduroys and light weight denims from North England, checkered techno nylon and double stretch fleece. All prints are designed in their studio and are then applied by hand and machine. Schepers Bosman design with graphical colour, a variety of form with a minimalistic impact.
Schepers and Bosman graduated in 2011 with honours at ArtEZ Institute of the Arts Arnhem, BA Fashion Design. Schepers continued her studies at l’Institut Français de la Mode (IFM) in Paris. Bosman also studied further and graduated from Central Saint Martins London, MA Menswear. In past years Schepers won the Lichting G-Star Raw Talent Award 2011, while Bosman won two H&M Design Awards. In 2017 the duo won the international design competition Les Etoiles Mercedes-Benz.
De collection was made possible thanks to the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) and the 3PackageDeal.
