Gerbe unveils its 2013-2014 collection, with limited edition models mainly inspired by Paris’ mythical places such as the RIVOLI, GRAND HÔTEL, TUILERIES, D’ORSAY or PALAIS ROYAL tights, representing throughout different styles the must coveted “French Touch”.
The highly graphic collection combines traditional know how and femininity, with meticulous knitting techniques that offer some shaping alternatives, reflecting the endless intertwined geometrical lines of Parisian avenues and boulevards.
Gerbe also presents its new creator’s collection developed in partnership with Gaspard Yurkievich. This third collaboration features once again an amazing collection that does keep in line with the original designer’s style, offering tights, stockings and socks in harmony with modern women’s codes. As the designer defines it: “this collection reflects the desire to seduce and to constantly surprise but also the desire to face comfortably winter chills while moving ahead in everyday life.”
The different themes focus around evocative range names like JUNGLE FEVER, PRECIOUS, INFINI OR MEMPHIS, remastering “trompe l’oeil” effects, animal prints and other “camouflage”, while the INCROYABLE, FANTAISIE and COSMIC ranges present some new and sophisticated brighter hues.
The designer states that “this new tights collection meets the very clear aim to match life style and women silhouette by Gaspard Yurkievich.” This is the reason why he has incorporated the same hues featured in his ready-to-wear collection like golden, rust, purple or black. Surprising blend of these colours result to an authentic two-tone mix: Kaki/Noir, Cappuccino/Noir, Bleu Nuit/Noir, Au Naturel/Noir and Pavot/Noir.
