GAS – the international premium luxury denim wear brand showcased its new range of Spring Summer ’13 collection, inspired from the classics, in association with the famous Belgian artisanal boulangerie kitchen Le Pain Quotidien in Mumbai. GAS Spring Summer 2013 collection is an incredible array of bright colors giving homage to spring and bringing alive the brand’s new look that is both casual and dressy.
Colored denims are a large part of the GAS SS’13 collection, starting from classic grey denims and exploring new directions. Denim fabrics colored inside and grey outside as a result of intense washes for the women’s range and lighter ones for the men’s, create chiaroscuro effects and unusual color nuances that go from acid green to teal, mauve and wisteria blue.
The new collection mainly consists of medium to medium light shades treated with sandpapering and light washes to give a “raw used” look that is fluid and pleasing to the touch, or heavier but still discreet and sophisticated treatments with darns and mends that use tone on tone yarns, patches, color spots and dirtying.
The basis of the entire range is experimentation with all the shades of indigo. A large part of the range is a homage to GAS blue. A fabric in a very deep, intense, almost Indian ink blue, is given treatments of varying intensity from raw to a strong wash that gives brilliant colors, particularly in the women’s range.
