For Spring/Summer 2012, French fashion designer Gaspard Yurkievich proposes a collection of versatile clothes adapted to the fast-paced lifestyle needs of contemporary men. The suits, shirts, T-shirts and sweatshirts designed by Yurkievich were conceived so that they can be worn in both formal and casual settings. However, these garments also offer incorporate original details, such as unique tailoring, specific piping inside jackets, or the presence of the letter Y (the label’s symbol) on the back of shirts and T-shirts.
The collection includes 140 garments presented in 34 individual looks. The seven new jackets designed for the collection stand out for their slim tailoring and use of original fabrics, whereas suits come in several shades of grey punctuated by beige and ochre tones. In addition, Gaspard Yurkievich’s Spring/Summer 2012 menswear collection includes a diverse range of shirts in 11 styles and 56 variations.
