Atelier GARDEUR unveils A/W skirts collection
04
Dec '13
In its skirt collection for Autumn/Winter 2014/15 Atelier GARDEUR will not only be presenting the trend theme Smart Traditions but also skirts with rock chic: unusual patches meet metallic decoration. Natural chic brings woollen fabrics and floral prints in brilliant colours.

The silhouette is characterised by new skirt shapes with swingy hem widths and a bell-like drape in midi length. Playing around the knee, pencil skirts remain important though now also increasingly feature in shorter variations.

Bold colours move into the background and now only feature as lipstick red in combination with black and off-white. Featured alongside subdued tones like emerald, Bordeaux and midnight blue are cognac and slate.

The Themes

Smart Traditions

Checks dominate and add great variety in Autumn 2014: tartans in traditional tones like black and red contrast with coordinating Black Watch checks on pencil skirts. New are short, pleated checked skirts in a kilt look with plain patches and topstitched leather straps as well as metallic fasteners in that rock Brit chic. Checked prints on stretch fabrics in a slim shape with zipper details present a sporty slant.

Masculine Glen checks in a black and off-white combo take on a feminine look thanks to lace embroidery and lace hems or feature in large repeat patterns on coarsely woven wool. Eye-catchers here are combined check and floral patterns in gemstone colours running from the waistband downwards.

Rock Couture

Patching knows no bounds! Patches featuring leather are important, for instance as bordered leather trims, lozenge topstitching on plains or in combination with lace and jersey. Prints come as patches in a variety of pattern sizes.

Decorations and metallic accessories gain importance: silver zippers, rivet details or leather straps with eyelets shine out on plain fabrics and generate real rock chic attitude!

Lace gains importance and features not only on allover patches but also as decoration at the hem. A new addition here is asymmetry or partial decoration: divisional seams, a slit pocket on one side plus diagonal zipper details mix up the otherwise clear lines.

Natural Chic

Moving to the fore are new tweed looks and bouclés in woollen fabrics that look knitted. Harmonious floral prints look opulent or display brilliant colour accents while smudged checks feature on coarsely woven wool. New leopard prints add variety and create accents. The colour scheme here reflects opulent tones like cognac, slate, anthracite and ultra-blue.
