It was clean, fresh and, at times, deeply saturated in blue and pink. GmbH’s Spring/Summer 2020 runway show today at Paris Fashion Week was a grand display of designers Serhat Isik and Benjamin Alexander Huseby’s penchant for refinement with a touch of unconventionality.
The collection’s palette shifted abruptly from white, to shades of azure and cobalt before dipping off into olive green and ending with a dose of fuchsia. Closer inspection revealed the same level of attention applied to the materials, prints and the silhouettes themselves, led by tailored suits, light-weight button-downs and utilitarian pants.
Blazers and pants were pitted against sportier items like zip pull-overs and cargo bottoms, all melding together through the streamlined use of color. A pair of white jock strap-inspired trousers warranted a double-take — which the brand in turn supplied with a dark blue denim version. More expected, however, were the PVC-lacquered pants the label has consistently championed, which this time around were paired with summery shirts featuring bird graphics and retro patterns. Continuing its venture into womenswear — which began with the Spring 2019 season — airy gowns, sporty dresses and fitted overcoats were interspersed throughout, meeting the GmbH man with a complementary level of workwear-meets-elegance.
