Schinderhannes and his wife Julchen

 
Vorderansicht
 

Period: 1802, Germany

We crafted these suits of Johannes Bückler, alias Schinderhannes, and his wife Juliane Bläsius for a permanent exhibition at the Hunsrück museum.

On the one hand the conceptual designs are based on warrants of apprehension of the famous German outlaw. On the other hand we relied on two contemporary illustrations: a colored stitch print that depicts the arrest of the Schinderhannes and his gang, and a painting showing him – already in chains – together with his 'Julchen'.
The time is around 1800, which from a historical fashion perspective is called the Directoire, a style that describes the transition from Rococo to the Empire epoch. Bückler wore culottes with both waistcoat and jacket, long trousers with camisole, and a sleeved jacket of light blue color according to the warrants of apprehension.

Accordingly we decided to make the culottes and the short habit of blue cotton fabric with a slight grey sheen Correspondingly the linen of the waistcoat was also dyed in an 'antique' red tone. Together with a black silk cloth the Schinderhannes wore a tricorne of black cotton.


The realization of Julchen's garments adheres closely to a stitch print where she is depicted together with her husband and their newborn son. The fabric pattern used for skirt and hood is a replica of materials commonly used around 1800: stripes interspersed with small bouquets of flowers of blue and white colors. The caraco – a short peplum jacket – was crafted from dark blue linen.
The uncommonly good clothing of this robber duo is based on authentic models.
