Collection Survey: Schueller De Waal's In Bed And Outer Space Resort 18

Beam me up!
Fashion dorks and big dreamers Philipp Schueller and Rens de Waal make the kind of clothing that sits somewhere on an intersection between dress up box and art mum. It's fantastic. Proportions are so off that they're on, making way for silhouettes that are truly interesting. Fabrication references, from team uniforms to hi-vis wear, have a sense of playfulness, while shirting and prints are seriously determined. 
 
For the Schueller De Waal Resort 18 collection, they've enlisted Dutch dream babe BEA1991 (musician and artist), turned her a sunny yellow and plopped her in bed. The collection, titled 'Let's Stay In Bed For This Season' is a tidy selection of jumpsuits "aiming to dream away to brighter destinations."
