Season: Fall/Winter 2019
Key Pieces: The short-sleeved, graphic shirt makes novel use of stills from Monty Python's 1970s, Flying Circus sketch, “How Not To Be Seen.” The label's continued exploration of “coexistence” takes the definition of “not being seen” and combines it with Schepperheyn's clean design aesthetics for this cinematic, button-down shirt.
Release Date: TBC
Editor’s Notes: Berlin-based designer, Verena Schepperheyn, has delivered yet another triumphant lookbook, this time taking inspiration from the iconic Monty Python sketch, “How Not To Be Seen,” available to watch below. The lookbook sees Schepperheyn's clean and distinct graphical approach combined with Monty Python's darkly humorous imagery.
Details like contrasting colored linings, extraordinary cuff closures, and partially hidden pockets are highlighted by models who seem to have taken choreographic cues from Monty Python's “Ministry of Silly Walks.”
Given the subtlety of the collection’s detailing, all aforementioned exaggerations might have been necessary, to fully communicate Schepperheyn's clear love and attention for extraordinary elements.
