Gaia, SS12, Copenhagen.
While the deconstruction of the white shirt had become a perennial fashion favourite, it is the blue shirt that Gaia has used as a focal garment for her Spring Summer 2012 collection. The shirt shapes and oversized gowns provide a soft and serene backdrop for soft mid-tone prints and knitwear with a naive charm.
There are some nice individual features of the shirt that have also been emphasised to great effect such as the yoke shapes that have been recreated as overlayers and the patch pockets that have blown up to large proportions. The use of these features, softly angular hair and icy eyebrows all help to create a surreal and off kilter edge to the collection.
