Masterminded simplicity and beauty at 1205

London: After her training of menswear and womenswear couture on Savile Row designer Paula Gerbase presented her fourth collection at London fashion week in The Conservatory of the Barbican. There was not a lot of evidence of the title ‘The Eloquence of Ornament’ from a designer known for her sense of androgynous purity. Simple structured tailoring and minimal alpaca pieces draped with a simple metal ring, each piece rigorously cut in beautiful tactile fabrics. Layered rib knit tube ensembles and pleated culottes cut in perfect proportions generated unadorned beauty. Loose-fit trousers and surplus jackets cut in outdoor nylon were executed by a master of precision and androgyny. – Christa Kaufmann
