Gaspard Yurkievich Womenswear A/W11

Neon tartan panelling and pom-pom halternecks gave a playful feel to the Parisian designer's new collection

The adventurous French designer presented his Autumn/Winter '11 show, titled 'Take Two', with halterneck silk dresses with furry pom pom detailing or a slather of fur on the neckline. V-neck shift dresses adding a sculptured feel alongside wide capes and classic tailoring whilst the predominant theme of tartan was transformed from its traditional use, coming in neon turquoise and cut out for side-panelling on the pieces. Roll neck pullovers gathered at the waist and trouser suits provided an almost more masculine approach to the overall eveningwear feel whilst pops of colour on the girl's tangerine orange lips added a lightness.
