Billowing primrose yellow at Gaspard Yurkievich

With models tracing the circular showspace of the Grand Hotel's Salon, Gaspard Yurkievich today showed his womens and mens collection that was built around a quote from Aldous Huxley's Point Counter Point, "maybe this world is another planet's hell". Taking this and countering it with imagining Earth as another planet's paradise, Yurkievich presented an ease and simplicity through exploring permutations of the coatdress for the ladies and boxy 7/8 leg suiting for men. Although inspiration and presentation were somewhat abstracted from one another, Yurkievich presented a neat and easy-to-digest collection, with particular successes laying in the re-engineered mens shirting, a key piece emerging from this collections season.
