Gerard Darel, the Paris-based brand founded in 1971 presented in Barcelona its new collection Autumn Winter 2014. This is masculine cut garments, trousers and pinstripe with tweezers. This season the pant suit is inspired in pajamas for men with menswear line, confirming androgyny as another form of elegance. A sober and elegant style at the same time.
Red, burgundy and animal print are the predominant colors in the different garments of the collection. The black is the ubiquitous color in the wardrobe of every woman and also at Gerard Darel. The prêt-à-porter brand known for its simple, modern and highly feminine collections.
Within accessories from Gerard Darel one of the highlights is the mythical bag “24 heures”. It was created in 2003, combines practicality and elegance and has become an it bag for fashionistas. And this season makes a turn to the rock n ‘roll becoming the model “Rebelle”. Bags with bohemian touches, fringe, fur, for day or night.
Another piece that I discovered in the presentation was the New Jackie necklace. It is nothing less than a design that took Jackie Kennedy and Danièle Darel bought some years ago at an auction of the iconic Sotheby’s in New York. Since then the necklace is a must have at the parisian house.
Also I had the opportunity to visit Pablo, another line from Gerard Darel. This brand it is considered the little brother and is targeted to a younger woman who wants to combine trend and elegance. In his collection stand out the coats. Well worth a visit to Gerard Darel store in Barcelona , it is the only one in Spain that sells Pablo garments.
Taking inspiration from iconic figures such as Jackie Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe, Gerard Darel has been able to impose a new vision of prêt-à-porter.
