PerretSchaad’s Autumn/Winter 2010/2011 collection tells a story of attitude and contrast. The duo is passionate about design challenges. They consider their natural taste for beauty and elegance as playful rules they will apply, enhance and break. In the collection, this work process is shown through a great interest in material behaviour, surface quality, color concept and styling.
The designers’ love for natural and nobel fabrics is translated into elegant and quality garments. However, these high-end materials are given a twist with industrial processes as well as craftmanship. Wools are partly printed with silicon, giving effects of light and shine, as well as a difference in rigidness. Felt as a hand-working method is employed to create sculptural designs.
The palette of delicate, matt colours is complemented in this work with glossy surfaces and transparent details. Technical fabrics combined with pastel colours give characteristic looks of unexpected yet coherent aesthetic.
PerretSchaad’s shapes are developped with the art of draping and pattern cutting. Modeling on the dress stand offers unexpected forms, while pattern cutting is used to inspire volumes and space. Rather than dictatorial looks, PerretSchaad aim to create an atmosphere and aesthetic that encourages personalization and individuality.
