All one has to do to get a good feel of Schulten’s style is step inside his shopcome-studio in Badhoevedorp, just a stone’s throw from Schiphol Airport. Though the space may be small, the dresses on display make for a mustbrowse selection of garments that fill the room well. Schulten is extremely happy with his newfound place, having previously resided in Amsterdam’s arguably most affluent shopping street, P.C. Hooftstraat. “Many tried to buy me out of that place and then somebody came along with an offer I couldn’t refuse,” he grins. “Now I’ve got a place for myself with a showroom, a studio and there’s also the fact that I can practically walk from home to my store.”
