Conceptual dressing

Berber Soepboer and Michiel Schuurman
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Colour-In Dress, 2009

Replacement Dress, 2009
Clothing designer Berber Soepboer and Graphic Designer Michiel Schuurman collaborated to create textiles for a series of dresses that were exhibited this past fall at De Ploeg, a very famous textile factory in the Netherlands. The result are these dresses. Both used pattern as the essential elements in the design. 
Berber says,
Because the print is so flexible you can make many different designs by colouring it. Everybody can interpret the print the way they like it best.

  1. wouldn't this be the perfect travel dress...while waiting in airport lounges and train stations one could be colouring in the bits...looks rather better than the jeans i lived in at 17, drawn all over with black texta outlines!
