Illustrator & painter Bo Matteini is closely linked with SCRT, having worked with the brand for some time already on several one-off designs. Autumn/Winter 2018 was an opportunity to take this collaboration a step further, allowing for more of his experimental approach to come through.
Bo explores experimentation & process. His work is based around play and chance, each outcome being an experiment, a development in process, and another layer to examine. He stretches, pulls apart and re-imagines themes, re-crafting images through process and placing or removing narratives in order to create work that is both unique and reflective.
The inspiration for this particular project came from researching ancient religious ceremonies, and surrealist paintings. "Ritual" is a collection of field studies and observations, looking into the connection between object and ceremony, before bringing these studies to life. The full capsule contains one t-shirt, one hoodie, one scarf and an overshirt, available in two colour ways. You can view the capsule here.
Bo graduated from Camberwell in July 2018, and has already worked with SCRT, Slowdown Studio, Deliveroo, & So Young Magazine.
