GAUCHERE, the French prêt-à-porter house, and Selfridges, the high-end department store, will reveal a pop-up store in London on September 5, 2021. In partnership with SSENSE, the multi-brand e-tailer, the pop-up store will take the format of a living room furnished with vintage finds with a Scandinavian vibe. The space was designed in collaboration with San Francisco-based architect Alice Crumeyrolle and will be located on the department store’s designer-oriented second floor.
The GAUCHERE pop-up will offer an extended size, playing well with the brand’s breezy tailored wardrobe and the left-on-right buttoning style. The selection will include jackets, trousers and knitwear, as well as the label’s “Double X” slides with puffy straps.
GAUCHERE founder Marie-Christine Statz, explained that while they’d been working with the e-tailer for the past three seasons in the women’s category, extending her offerings for men hadn’t been on the cards until its men’s buyers reached out.
“What they were looking for wasn’t for us to create a dedicated line with cuts reworked for a male body, but to buy our existing collection and for us to find ways to offer our styles in extended sizes,” she said, adding that the label had an existing but minimal male clientele on their own e-commerce.
The gender-fluid approach of her designs is increasingly resonating with Asian consumers — GAUCHERE is already present in Korea, Singapore and Taiwan — and is now making its first steps into the Chinese market, being showcased in the Chengdu and Hangzhou branches of department store I.T.
