Sruli Recht Fall/Winter 2012 - “Field Dressing”
Canopy (Icelandic wool/cotton-knit cardigan)
“Loose, double-breasted cardigan, draped as a single rectangle, with floating tails covering patch-pockets, fitted sleeves and pleated neckline, edged with a blanket stitch. Draped on a man named Stefán in Reykjavík.” — Sruli Recht
Deep inside me flows the ocean of the Beloved’s splendor, carrying the entire cosmos within. ~Rumi
Ann Demeulemeester spring / summer 1999
How can I make a collection from painter’s canvas? That was the basic question behind the summer 1999 collection. This favourite material, which she had already used for invitations, displays and even tables, was ‘translated’ into an almost exclusively white collection. The shapes, developing further on those she started for the Winter 1998-99 collection, were conceived from what Ann Demeulemeester describes as ‘zero base’.
