The Seamless Revolution
A-POC Le Feu, spring/summer 1999. The A-POC concept was at first shown as part of the Miyake fashion show presentations, before becoming a collection in its own right. This dramatic display demonstrated the revolutionary concept by a series of models wearing a t-shirt and skirt, based on a square shape, each one connected to the next.

Stephan Schneider spring—summer 1996.
German-born Stephan Schneider graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp in 1994. In the same year he was financed to put his graduation collection into production and was offered the opportunity to have a stand during the Paris Fashion Week. As far Eastern buyers placed their orders, business was set up immediately, and he currently has more than 40 sales outlets world-wide.
At the beginning of 1996 the first European flagship store was opened in the centre of Antwerp.
Stephan Schneider’s idea is to dress the customer in a highly personal, recognizable way. The designs are fairly austere, geometrical yet fluid, well structured without superfluous additions. Important is his use of forgotten decorative elements and graphic prints, which appear throughout his collections in a reduced, structured and highly refined way. He uses the same fabrics for men and women, giving her an austere, and him a gentler look.
The dresses and shirts of our grandparents get a new interpretation: strong elementary graphical patterns are printed on simple white cotton.
