Directly from Pitti Uomo n.83, GAS shows off Men and Woman’s collection for A/W 13-14.
For him: contamination between the seemingly different worlds of Rock Biker, the ‘Eighties and Hunting creates new and original metropolitan uniforms.
The icons of the male wardrobe are reinterpreted and revamped with carefully studied materials and details: the bomber jacket in delavè black leather with band collar and diagonal zip, the duffle coat and peacoat in a mix of boiled wool and raw cut worked knit, the field jacket in felted knit with printed nylon details, the light jacket with band collar in the same fabric but in bright colors with a bonded check lining, and the quilted jackets in washed nylon with welded zips and leather patches.
The winter chill is kept at bay with an explosion of colorful dual function pieces in lightest injected down that can be worn alone or under a parka – an appealing, versatile range comprising a bomber jacket, windbreaker with detachable hood, shirt-jacket and gilet in the range’s brightest colors with contrast linings for unusual plays of color.
For her Rock Biker, Boho-Chic and British inspiration for a collection dedicated to the woman who wears only one uniform – her own personality.
Natural or ecological, it’s leather that expresses GAS’s rock biker inspiration to the full and dominates the scene. The iconic piece here is the MERIDA bomber jacket, one of the brand’s historic models. Leather effect and eco soul for the super-skinny 5 pocket SHEYLA, for the leggings that mix eco-leather and jersey, and for the quilting technique used for details on the paper-bag skirt with diagonal zip and the curve-enhancing strapless body con dress, as well as the little Chanel jacket.
The Chanel jacket is the season’s coolest fit, in lots of versions to complete as many personal styles, in metallic wool with touches of raw cut, quilted nylon or grey mélange fleece.
A light touch and a sensual attitude for the GAS Woman, who plays with a mix of edgy outerwear like the parka or the leather jacket and tunics, romantic dresses and pleated skirts with soft, flowing lines.
Femininity expressed through sheer, ethereal fabrics, asymmetry and contrasting fabrics and colors.
Colors are decidedly refined: a well mixed range of greys, blue, contrasting black and white, and warm, strong shades of mustard yellow, green and burgundy.
