Schipper/Arques is a highly conceptual Belgian label,
the brain child of Boris Schipper and Tomas Pedrosa Arques.
The duo's pieces are one of a kind. Their artistic styling is entrancing.
Their clothing is more than fashion, with stories and videos detailing the inspiration of collections.
For S/S 2011, they have found a rather confused and deranged muse. Escaping her repressed upbringing, their heroine runs away from her family at the Debutante Ball. As she liberates herself from her constricting clothes and padlocked, chastity corset, she experiences feelings of joy and alienation. Her embroidered face mask is one of the first things to go during her escape.
