SCOUTS IN BONDAGE
For it’s third season, Vyner Articles taps into darker inspirations, keeping away from the usually fresh and clean stereotype of work wear. Tying up rockstars, boyscouts and murder mysteries, Heikki Salonen designed the collection with some of his long time obsessions in mind, including James Ostenberg Jr, better know as Iggy Pop and Agatha Christie’s murder mystery universe. The two, bonded into an unusual association are visually colliding with the strange adventure novel Scouts in Bondagefor AW19’s collection.
“I have been watching a lot of documentaries about Iggy Pop who is one of my heroes and I started designing with him in mind. Another all time inspiration of mine is Agatha Christie and the amazing artworks for her book cover in the 60s. While I was drawing the collection with ink, I remembered Geoffrey Prout’s murder mystery book “Scouts in Bondage” and thought this is where Iggy meets Agatha. It all ties together in a fictional dark crime infused context.”explains Salonen. The collection is articulated around a take on classic finish and international boyscout uniforms along with Vyner Articles classic bandanas and their slides reminiscing boyscout’s neckerchiefs.
Over dyed bandanas in white and black are assembled into unique workwear outfits as classic shirts, shorts and workers pants are mixed with T-shirts and sweatshirts in purple and maroon, official colours of the world organisation of the scout movement. The boyscout meets bondage with darker rock infused pieces such as a stripy turtleneckt-shirt adorned with redesigned dark rock patches, graphic T-shirt paying hommage to Agatha Christie in the style of the 60s murder mystery book covers.
The colour palette, originating in a decorative scout blanket hanging at Vyner Articles headquarter in London, features the typical scout tonalities of maroons and purples mixed with glowing blues, over-dyed black and white. The workwear fabrics are worn and broken giving texture to the organic cotton. A graphic T-shirt proposes a dark interpretation of tie-dye using the splodge acid technique which along the over-dyed garments and the hand-stitched shoulder details are all handmade in Italy.
For the first season with Vyner Articles we’ve collected a nice selection of printed tees, hoodies and sweatshirts not forgetting the bandana’s known already from Vyner’s first two collections.
Here’s a peek to their FW19 collection and to the selection we have.
