For Fall / Winter 2013, GERLAN JEANS, toasts Eccentric Ladies of the past, present
and future. Inspired by women who are born with a unique sense of style and dedicate their lives to the pursuit of rare beauty - ECCENTRIC LADY is a collection of illustrative graphic knitwear, evening inspired sportswear, surrealistic prints, and sculptural proportion.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary – Cecil Beaton
This season, GERLAN JEANS takes the printed surface to a new dimension, with a special collection of expressionistic knits, in collaboration with New York based knitwear label, DEGEN. Fine, richly colored wools are used to illustrate the surface, creating a painterly effect that extends into woven separates. Texture and dramatic proportion contrast - fluid georgettes drape against sculptural neoprene and tech outerwear is cropped for a formal effect. Richly saturated colors, bold illustrative graphics, and hand painted accessories express the eclectic energy of the ECCENTRIC LADY in all of us.
