Gestuz Amsterdam Catwalk Fashion Show SS2013
When thinking of summer, most people think of light, airy fabrics and a soft or cheerful color palette. But not Arina Woron, designer of Danish label Gestuz. Her perfect summerlook is feminine and romantic but with a rock ‘n roll twist. “The collection is about a beautiful rose garden on a hot summer day, very romantic. Yet we always keep the toughness in every collection.”
And it showed. The Gestuz woman dresses sexy but in a edgy way. We saw some black, asymmetrical dresses with a slit or open back paired with rough combat boots. As well as nude body hugging dresses, soft knitted jumpers, shorts and skirts with zippers in the front. The rock ‘n roll was more visible in the use of black, denim revised with studs and of course lots of leather, which seems a key ingredient in every collection. The roses were reflected in the different shades of red and pink used in several graphic prints.
Do we want to be this Gestuz women? Well, we love the burgundy red and leather details. And a bit of rock ‘n roll in the summer is maybe not such a bad idea at all.
