Sports Chic at Gaspard Yurkievich Spring 2012

PARIS – FashionTV is at the Gaspard Yurkievich show during Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012. The collection is “sports chic” according to the designer, with reddish cheeks and fresh makeup. The hair is messy and the face is dewy to add to the sporty look. “It’s a very sporty inspiration, but the clothes are very feminine,” says designer Yurkievich who says the clothes are supposed to help the customer continue her addiction for sports. Boxy dresses and cropped jackets are paired with capri pants and layered fabrics in a sharp fashion. “The shape is very sharp,” the designer says, “The idea is really to take the element of outerwear and also make reference to elegance and couture.” It’s really the combination of two opposite elements, he says. Colors are classic ivory, beige, navy matched with brights like yellow, floral prints, and other hues that pop.
