Gaspard Yurkievich Fall 2011: Impeccable Tailoring and Shameless Bling
PARIS--Last men’s fashion week, Gaspard Yurkievich was a no-show as his company was going through major restructuring. When we saw him a few weeks ago, he promised he’d make it up to us during Ready-to-Wear--and he did. Yesterday afternoon, in a series of boudoirs at Christie’s, male and female models confidently marched down his catwalk in looks that confirmed the Yurkievich we know is back indeed. His collection held the same balance of retro lines, impeccable tailoring and shameless bling--demonstrating, as always, a perfect knowledge of fashion history (he teaches in several Parisian universities), and a flare for old school glamor.
