Stephan Schneider (Belgium)

Stephan Schneider established his label in 1994. Since then, he has become renowned for clean, timeless garments bolstered by intelligently designed detailing and superlative fabrics. For each collection, Schneider spends half his time working with the fabric and the other half with the silhouette. The fabrics are custom made in-house in Belgium. This understanding of the interplay between the textile and the cut is what sets Stephan Schneider apart.

Stephan Schneider’s fall-winter 2015-16 collection, titled “It All Begins With”, is inspired by the classic board game Scrabble. As is typical with Schneider’s work, this season’s motif is most clearly felt in the fabrics themselves. Raised square knit patterns and woven colorblocking are featured prominently. The color palette plays a supporting role and is filled with nuanced, textured neutrals complemented by deep, rich shades of green and navy. While evoking the comfortable, nostalgic feeling of playing a board game with friends on a chilly night the collection remains thoroughly modern.
