About

lander

“Lander” is a spacecraft which descends toward and comes to rest on the surface of an astronomical body. The Fall/Winter 2017 collection is a story about a Man who has landed on Planet Earth. The collection reflects people’s longing for Earth – for a home. It is inspired by real space missions in which astronauts have had to spend over a year away from their homes and families. Asked what they missed most during their long missions, the astronauts replied: “family, friends, fresh air, gravitation, fresh fruit, vegetables and swimming in clear water”. The association with travelling far off into space has been chosen to reveal two poles: on the one hand, people’s ambitions and dreams of achievement and discovery, and on the other the primal longing for familiar, everyday things. On Earth, other planets seem to us to be completely out of reach, but when we are far off in space the most ordinary earthly things such as gravitation and water become precious. These contrasts are reflected in the collection through the choice of materials, colours and textures. There are references to both astronaut clothing and apparel worn every day here in Earth. Many details, fittings, embroidery, various types of cotton as well as innovative fabrics and clever, constructive pattern solutions dominate the collection.
