For the Spring Summer 2022 collection, the house’s founder and creative director Marie-Christine Statz reflected an ongo-ing conversation with Miren Arzalluz. It started when Miren was first introduced to GAUCHERE and immediately felt and understood the designer’s calling to create clothing for the individual that express their identity and mood. This shared experience led to Miren interpreting Marie-Christine’s vision for the GAUCHERE collection in her own words. “It is just so powerful when you feel an intimate connection with your clothes, as if you and them were all one and the same, enabling you to express exactly what you want to tell the world about yourself, at that particular moment; protect-ing you where you most need it; helping you through challenges, hardships, successes and dreams. It’s an armor which is fluid, shielding and liberating.”The 37 looks of the Spring Summer 2022 collection were filmed at the Palais Galliera. The architecture of the Neo-Renais-sance Palace with its broad, monumental windows, paved courtyard, semicircular peristyle and glass & steel roof offered the perfect backdrop and atmosphere for the collection. Whites, sand stone, vanilla and warm caramel hues dominate the colour palette. This light range is accentuated with a bright pea-green and completed by dark neutrals such as navy, midnight blue and black. The house’s monochrome gender fluid suiting offers powerful contrasts: tailored wools are connected with sheer fabrics. Shiny silk is panelled with dry cot-ton. Open weaved linen jackets have angular and elaborate shoulders that morph into organic and rounded shapes. They are styled with bra tops and super wide pleat-front trousers. Crochet, sequin and slip skirts are paired with delicate lace tops or with oversized shirts featuring lace applications, curved button plackets, patched panels or pleats. A deep V-neckline is reoccurring throughout the collection on tops, dresses as well as collar- and buttonless vests and jackets. Fluid dresses and tops come with long slits and open backs. Soft asymmetries are created with fabric knots and rounded cut-outs. Drapes form different silhouettes defined by the body.GAUCHERE is a French prêt-à-porter house founded in 2013 by the designer Marie-Christine Statz. Her vision is to cre-ate garments that point out the individual. At the heart of GAUCHERE is the art of tailoring, the appreciation of materials as they are and the translation in pure geometric structures and sculptural volumes. Marie-Christine’s intuitive designs are expressing the mood of today while aiming for permanence and timelessness.The GAUCHERE community is progressive. It is an active participant in today’s society. “Live and let live” is not just a phrase for them but an attitude towards life
