Paris, France – According to many, there really is no right and wrong in today’s fashion world. The new work by Gauchère embodies this way of thinking.
Fashion no longer has borders or clear rules. Everything paired down can create something new and exciting. This playful idea is visible in the perfectly tailored garments by Gauchère. The clean lines are destroyed by shredded lining. The harmony of pure forms is diminished by a mixture of color blocks and geometric patterns. The simplicity gets complex with asymmetry and deconstruction. Some sets are plain and neat, to be contradicted by crazy fusions of color.
The collection consists of grungy jackets, cullotes pants, pleated skirts, simple shirts, vests, coats, shorts, dresses and tops. Some pieces are everyday clothes one can wear straight from the racks, some are avangard and pop-artish.
The colors used are black, grey, white, beige, soft blue, dark denim blue with some touches of hot pink and red.
The whole idea is interesting. But in spite of the collection being a very solid one for Spring/Summer 2016, this writer can’t help be feel that some of the pieces are overly too simple and basic especially when compared to the more abstract ones.
