Nautical look, nautical feeling in Gaastra collection
Apr '09
Just as the Gaastra label itself, the Gaastra Summer 2009 collection has an even more international character than in previous years. The collection will be presented in the form of logbook of a sailing trip, with a separate theme for each day.

The theme will be reflected in the clothing, both with regard to functionality and radiance, with own art works, material and use of colour. Of course, Gaastra has remained faithful to the unique mix of functionality and nautical lifestyle clothing which made the label famous. This successful combination is more varied than ever in the Gaastra Spring/Summer 2009 collection.

The collection has been divided into a Gaastra Sport and a Gaastra Breton collection.

Gaastra Sport
The first three elements of the logbook involve Gaastra Sport. As always, the key words are fresh, functional where possible, colourful and fashionable; moreover, the attractive fit, rich accents and innovative materials give Gaastra Sport a tempting, luxurious radiance. The following key words describe the different themes:

Day 1: Sailing Project, 2nd edition - Navy & white, luxurious structures, casual radiance, clean, sporty with an especially rich feeling.

Day 2: Breaking waves, ultimate elements- Black & off-white, linear, minimalist and luxurious radiance.

Day 3: Transatlantic challenge - Rainbow of colours, the height of summer, light materials, playful designs, irregular strips and Madras Check.

Gaastra Breton
Whereas the emphasis of the Sport line is on functionality, the Breton part of the Gaastra collection is more fashion-orientated. Breton is characterized by a classic, chique nautical look, brought up-to-date each year with new fits, accents, colours and materials. The traditional nautical feeling of Breton is enhanced by the use of natural materials such as linen, canvas and cotton. The following key words describe these themes:

Day 4: Antigua crew - Blue tones off-set with white, wax coatings and a rich radiance.

Day 5: Oceanic passage- Navy with white, cerise, fun, a stylized compass card, exuberant, modern, luxurious radiance of the classic Gaastra style.

Day 6: Sailing society - Pastel tints, summery look & feel, fun, lightweight materials and fine knits.

Day 7: New Port Haven Sandy-coloured & lavender, pearl effect, flower designs in sturdy Italian design.

Gaastra is an authentic label with a rich history and inheritance; a name which evokes the idea of sailing and water sports over the whole world. Gaastra Sportswear stands for high-quality, functional, sailing clothing and sturdy lifestyle sportswear with a maritime character. The collection comprises a complete and totally customised lifestyle concept offering an entire range for men, women and children. The Gaastra collection is very varied, from professional sailing outfits to coordinated sportswear and casual wear, with an extensive range of accessories and footwear.

Gaastra is part of the McGregor Fashion Group B.V., which was set up in 1993. The McGregor Fashion Group B.V. is a European fashion house, aimed at designing, purchasing, marketing, distributing and selling men's, ladies' and children's designer clothing in the higher market segment.
