Paris Fashion Week A/W 22 – GAUCHERE

GAUCHERE is a French prêt-à-porter house founded in 2013 by the designer Marie-Christine Statz. Her vision is to
create garments that point out the individual. At the heart of GAUCHERE is the art of tailoring, the appreciation of
materials as they are and the translation in pure geometric structures and sculptural volumes. Marie-Christine’s intuitive
designs are expressing the mood of today while aiming for permanence and timelessness.

The 35 looks of the collection clearly express Marie-Christine Statz’s minimalistic mood. The color palette for Fall Winter
2022 is pared back to black, anthracite, navy, a dark burgundy, heather grey, sand and taupe. These toned-down hues are
styled in monochrome looks with a pure intensity. The signature suiting continues to emphasize a wide shoulder but is
shown with long narrow silhouettes. Coats, jackets, wide trousers and below the knee skirts are cut from three dimensional fabrics such as coated or padded cotton, patent leather, double faced cashmere wool, pinstriped menswear wool and fuzzy tech yarns.

The dresses range from long versions made of granular viscose with open v-neck back and a high slit, off-the-shoulder mini dresses made of mouliné jersey to sharp-shoulder all-over sequin styles. Deconstructed denim is paired with versatile piped one shoulder tops. A blown-up blurry photo print on fluid silk adds a vibrant retro softness.

The Fall Winter 2022 Défilé is held under the arcades of Rue de Rivoli – in the neighborhood of the GAUCHERE studio.
“For me it was very important to show this particular collection on the street. A joined experience, nothing secluded,” says
Marie-Christine Statz. While creating this season, Statz reflected how people instinctively choose their garments according
to their mood, about the energy of the moment and the urge to voice it.

“Our intuition is always in response to something. Be it the instinctive knowing of a certain state of a society. In this non-discursive process, a new point of view is created.” says Statz.

The GAUCHERE community is progressive. It is an active participant in today’s society. “Live and let live” is not just a
phrase for them but an attitude towards life.

ICYMI:Nicki Minaj wears Idan Cohen on the cover of Cosmo

 ICjumpsuit nicki on cosmo

When we viewed the Idan Cohen show back in February, we were dazzled by the beautiful intricacy of his work. Apparently, the stylists over at Cosmopolitan were too, since their July cover girl, Nicki Minaj, dazzled in a crystallized body suit from his RTW collection. Mr. Cohen debuted his designs for the first time at New York Fashion Week in February. We have no doubt it will not be his last. As time ticks down to September, we cannot wait to see what Idan Cohen has in store for us with his S/S 2016 Collection.

If you would like to view more of Idan Cohen’s A/W 2015 collection, watch the video below. Courtesy

WILLOW SMITH: The New Face of Marc Jacobs

MARC JACOBS SLOWLY UNVEILS HIS FALL/WINTER CAMPAIGN

IMG_20150605_045431

This morning Marc Jacobs unveiled a picture from his latest campaign starring Willow Smith. Over the past year, Willow and her brother Jaden have been two of the most interesting celebrity kids to watch, fashion-wise. Last week the Internet was buzzing about Jaden’s prom pictures, but it’s safe to say his sister wins this round—her campaign image is pretty stellar. While it may seem insane that a 14-year-old has landed a major fashion campaign, keep in mind this is the same kid that had a hit single at age 9.

Willow joins Cher in the campaign, photographed by David Sims. There is no word yet on who else might show up in the series, but on his Instagram, Jacobs states that there is still more to come. Is it weird to be genuinely excited about advertising?
