Dr. Romanelli has joined forces with Belgium retailer SMETS and artist Stefan Meier to unveil a new collection inspired by camouflage and its history. Reworking vintage military gear, the lineup includes upcycled MA-1 jackets, backpacks and fanny packs, along with tees and sweatshirts highlighting Meier’s interpretation of the iconic pattern. The artist also created custom canvases as backdrops for the installation and a book around camo, which served as a reference for the overall capsule.

“Throughout this process I referred to camouflage in nature. Thinking of how camouflage has contributed to the evolution and survival of human kind and what type of camouflage we need today and in the future,” said Meier.

The collaboration sees a unique melding of art, design and history, which SMETS buying director Pascaline Smets envisions as a crucial component in pushing the fashion industry forward.

“We are so very proud to collaborate with DrX Romanelli x Stefan Meier, both artists represent a vision for the future, taking with them a knowledge of the past all the while developing a new creative process, ” quoted Smets.
