• Atelier Opening Invitation Letter


    26 years ago my parents opened their Industrial Design Atelier ‘Hofstede van Erkel’, where they handmade stainless-steel furniture and objects. 


    The COLD WASH FW21 collection has been inspired by their industrial and meticulous identity, while juxtaposed by the use of rusted colours and state-changing fabrics.


    The graphic displayed on this garment is the cover of the invitation my mother designed when they opened their atelier. The cover is dominated by a frontal view drawing of a one-of-a-kind bookcase that was made for one of their clients. The layout and graphic style resonate immensely with my personal taste so when I found this invitation I knew I had to resurrect it, 26 years later, celebrating the now uncelebrated.
