Signature design aesthetics of a modern take on minimalism and luxury craftsmanship continue within the SS16 collection.
Razor sharp pattern cutting of deceptively simple techniques create a clean, modern look.
collection offers classic monochromatic colourways in a variety of new textures and finishes, providing a directional yet relaxed everyday look.
This season is a play on masculine and feminine ideals by taking menswear staples such as the denim jacket, parka, tailored blazer and in floaty fabrications such as silk georgette and crepes, which skim the body highlighting the silhouette.

The first-ever New York Fashion Week Men’s has come and gone, held July 13-16 by the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
As many designers exhibited their spring/summer 2016 collections, many new trends stood out, one of which was "stripes."

Come hell or high water.
Welter Shelter is a new all-weather outerwear brand. Designed in Amsterdam, made in Europe. Welter Shelter jackets represent the best of both worlds: warmth and protection provided by technical superiority, coupled with an undeniable stylish exterior and excellent comfort.
The jackets are made from the finest fabrics and materials on offer, complemented by a
technical three-layer membrane to make them 100% waterproof, breathable and wind
Welter Shelter was born in the midst of a November storm. When the weather gods
released their fury on a recently bought five hundred euro woolen winter coat and
defeated it in minutes. The owner was left cold and soaked to the bone. After cursing his
fate and choice of apparel, he’s left with a striking conclusion; this can be done better.
And thus, Welter Shelter was born.
Fall Winter 2015
For FW 2015 Welter Shelter has given some of the most quintessential wardrobe pieces
the technical treatment. The Terror Weather parka, Long Dong trench and Camera jacket
for men and the Long Tube and Clock V for women all maintain a classic minimalistic,
almost elegant exterior, while having full functionality underneath. All jackets come with
an inner removable isolation jacket for absolute warmth.
