Atelier Gardeur checks in with austere & exotic skirts
16
May '14
In its skirt collection for Spring/Summer 2015 Atelier GARDEUR presents a variety of summery styles: austere geometric looks contrast here with a relaxed and casual feel. Pencil skirts and pleats move into the foreground and feature not only cool, graphic designs and innovative lace looks but also floral to tropical prints. Sport meets fashion: jogging skirts give the collection variety and casual sporty touches.
 
Colour presents bold black and white contrasts accentuated by blue and red interplays. Serving as a counter weight to colour, are subdued pastel tones like rosé, mint and vanilla that exude cool elegance.
 
With “Sporting Life” Atelier GARDEUR will be directing the focus in\ Summer 2015 towards graphic patterns in a sporty Pop Art style. The black and offwhite colour combo makes for exciting contrasts and Yves Klein blue and Mondrian red create playful accents. Graphic mini designs feature as patch on plain fabrics or as geometric inserts down the sides. Abstract prints are reminiscent of graffiti-type brushstrokes and look painted. Cut-outs are gaining ground featuring as side patches with plains, as allover ajour embroidery or patterned, burnt-out fabrics.
 
Plissés and pleats are gaining in importance and feature as trendy A-lines or asymmetrical black and white graduations. Skirts in a sporty jogging style made of flowing polyester fabrics with wide elasticated waists are new here, sometimes featuring modern black and white patch.
 
In Summer 2015 soft pastels for pencil skirts make for a cool overall look featuring as monochromes or in combination with strong black. Pastels as plains on satin or as stripes graduated on a black background contrast with mini two-tone designs. Lace is reinterpreted exuding classical elegance as an A-line with a small pleat or as coarse bobbin lace in a casual, crocheted look. 
 
Tone-in-tone threedimensional effects or jacquards with a floral design and meshing create interesting lace looks. Prints continue to be a key theme: as reptile looks on a pastel background centrally positioned they make for a slim silhouette. Floral, almost photographic prints look soft and feminine. Summer lightness is provided by hippie and pleated skirts in flowing fabrics with reduced allover shadow prints.
 
Exoticism, colours and patterns. The “Midnight Garden” theme increasingly features prints with a botanical flair. Linen and flowing fabrics as pleated or maxi skirts form the focal point here. Floral prints with blossoms and grasses really come into their own when set against a black background. Large repeat shadow prints with colour accents or prints with palm branches and Henri Rousseau style birds are reminiscent of tropical rainforests.
