The specialty of Scheltens & Abbenes
is to meticulously arrange objects
into configurations that have a strong
two-dimensional or graphic character.
A good example is a series of photograps
for the magazine Fantastic Man.
Here, they arranged a collection of knitted sweaters
in such a way that the patterns and straight lines
conjure up the 1920's tradition
thus combining the lavish richness of fashion
with the puritanical strictness of Modernism.
