“The Vyner Articles AW2021 collection, Gegen Alles, is an ode to the daydreaming underdog.
The toned-down palette of off-white is accompanied by the occasional pop of colour from the label's signature orange to a raspberry pink. T-shirts and sweatshirts feature pastel green bunnies, rabbit holes and red bones. The VA insignia takes new form in the Nails emblem, the Vyner Venom logo and scribble print reminiscent of Charlie Brown. Calico and denim pieces are finished with a ‘dirty’ treatment. Tie-dye prints seen in previous collections transform into a more subdued allover ‘birch’ treatment, reminiscent of the tranquil Finnish forests, overlaid with the disclaimer text from hangtags, now blown up into a manifesto of imperfection. Bold statements such as ‘Gegen Alles’ ie. ‘Against everything’ nod towards 1990s teenage provocateurs and draws attention to the banality of any such statements in this day and age.”
