SHERIE MUIJS is a Shirtmaker, and an incredibly talented one at that. Though her initial focus was not solely to produce shirts, Sherie's practice quickly moved in that direction after an award-winning debut collection entitled 'White Wash.' In 2012 Sherie decided to dedicate herself entirely to the pursuit of the ultimate shirt, each design movement was "...considered and deliberate, selecting materials of the finest nature and with painstaking attention to the production of her garments..." There is no doubt that "...Sherie’s shirts are created to be worn and loved with time."
For the release of her latest offering, the Boyfriend Shirt No.6, Sherie teamed up with Thistle Brown and model/designer Georgia Pratt in a New York loft to create an evocative Robert Mapplethorpe inspired shoot, which she has been kind enough to share exclusively with us. It was in the seventies that Mappelthorpe and Patti Smith were living in the Chealsea Hotel, a period where Mapplethorpe concentrated his photographic practice around the notion of form and figure, typically shooting his subjects in black and white - the ultimate inspiration for stylist Jack Roy and photographer Lily Cummings. The results are spectacular, undeniably capturing the timeless essence of SHIRT No.6, evoking the spirit in which it was made. It features all of Sherie's signature detailing, is made from a sixties cotton poplin and is suitable for both men and women.
