During Paris Fashion Week, GAUCHERE premiered their Fall/ Winter 2021 Collection that was shot at the Centre Pompidou, a 20th-century architectural marvel and home to the National Museum of Modern Art in Paris, France. For this show designer, Marie-Christine Statz, wanted to give the digital experience a home that is associated with the energy of Paris rather than showing in a space with no relation to the current reality.
GAUCHERE key looks are captured on the Centre’s infamous exterior escalators and surrounded by enormous colored tubing in various areas of the currently deserted museum. Throughout the show, models are crossing each other on escalators, terraces and in staircases without seeming to see one another to convey the locked-in and isolated state of today.
Various sounds rising from deep inside the Centre, its functional tubes and pipes on the outside of the building as well as the echo of large empty halls create a tapestry of sound like a steady heartbeat. It dictates the powerful pace and rhythm of the presentation that contrast the detached atmosphere.
The 21 looks continue to reflect the longing for a personal armour. Garments that not only make you feel comfortable but comforted, that offer protection without constriction. Weightless three-d brushed wool & alpaca blends and double faced fabrics come in coats, wrap-skirts, trousers, jackets and tops. Patted skirts and tops create rounded and soft silhouettes.
The color palette that builds on caramel brown, greys, a deep dark blue and different hues of cranberry, cabernet and burgundy red is accentuated by a bright green and blue.
Next to the house’s uniform of monochrome suiting and tailoring, color blocking looks define the attitude of the collection. For this look, a riviera blue oversized turtleneck is paired with wide wool trousers in plum, amazon green trousers made of buttery leather are styled with a multicolored fitted sweater.
