FUTURA Spring/Summer 2015 ‘Plane Bikers’
FUTURA is a menswear label from The Netherlands revived this year by Anne Bosman (creative director) and Tom Renema (managing director). Anne holds a MA from prestigious Central Saint Martins and a BA from ArtEZ Arnhem in fashion design. Tom has a BA in International Business Management from the HES Amsterdam.
Originally founded in 1984, the Amsterdam based label has been rejuvenated this year by the hands of Anne and Tom with the launch of a limited edition t-shirt collection through crowd funding.
FUTURA has a strong, clean and minimalistic appeal often attributed to well renowned Dutch designers. The starting point for FUTURA’s inspiration took off after finding an old touristic family picture from the late 1980’s of an uncle leaning against a small airplane. From there, the idea to recreate that 80’s vibe raised, … and a bolder and more essential design came to life.
This year, FUTURA has launched ‘Plane Bikers’, a collection for this Spring/Summer 2015 season available in our Stores at the end of January 2015. The pieces were conceived with the finest Italian cottons, 14 oz. Japanese Toyoshima denim, viscose poly satins, organic and recycled jersey cottons. All the prints in this collection have been hand screen printed.
