Jeroen Van Tuyl Autumn/Winter 2016

Men’s wear label JEROEN VanTUYL was created in January 2000 and is based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The first ready to wear collection called SCHERP was presented in January 2001 at the CASABO salon in Paris and also at the CAROLE DE BONA salon in March of the same year.

Jeroen van Tuyl has from the beginning integrated the international men’s wear designer calendar by being part of Féderation Française de Prêt a Porter et des Créateurs de Mode, schedule for men’s wear in Paris.

The style from the first collection is very recognisable by exercising on angles and pointed shapes and figures. The materials used are a mix of classical basics in natural fabrics and technological textures and are addressed to young men without concession and turns to the future with a spirit of nostalgia.

The second men’s wear collection MECHANIZED FOR SPRING SUMMER 2002 was also presented during the men’s fashion week at salon CASABO at Carrousel du Louvre in Paris in July 2001.

International press magazines, such as Japanese avant-garde COMPOSITE, French MODZIK, and FASHION DAILY NEWS, starts to be attracted by the label JEROEN VanTUYL.

The third collection ARMOURED FOR AUTUMN WINTER 2002-2003, presented at Casabo January 2002, continues the search for new architecture on male bodies and is addressed to brave men: long coats are present, the classical stripe is twisted, the fabrics are more and more refined.

Jerseys are matched with suits in elegant fabrics and optical fabrics for some of the shirts. New suits combine short jackets and remarkable pants.

The press is more and more present and you may find Jeroen van Tuyl’s coverage in magazines such as Journal de Textile, Jeunes createurs – Young Blood, Max Mode, Up-street and again Composite.

The collection BRAVE FOR SPRING SUMMER 2003 is a continuation on the ‘evolution’ of the square pattern theme and a translation of historical garments into modern and experimental, but elegant, garments. It is a continuation in the search for ‘new’ wearable men’s wear garments but with respect for the tradition of men’s wear. The showroom presentation of this collection was held in the Institut Néerlandais in Paris.
