Thanks to St. Vincent, GANT is in its “sleazy-1970s” era. Working together, the American singer-songwriter and the heritage American label have produced a ten-piece capsule collection that celebrates the sex-fuelled rock ‘n’ roll ’70s, delivering a unisex collection of tailoring that blends the glamor of Elton John with the hedonism of Studio 54, all while injecting a dose of disco fever.
While labeled as womenswear, St. Vincent’s GANT collaboration is designed to be worn by all bodies. The collection debuted at a private affair in London last week, which saw a crowd filled with influencers and media’s glitterati decked in the collaborative pieces, showcasing its versatility. A “Terracotta Pink” slim-fit blazer, cut with peaked lapels in fine Italian wool with a printed viscose lining that evokes the collection’s ’70s spirit, and finished with kitsch portrait-covered buttons, makes for an oversized look on some people or can become a part of a power suit on others.
Likewise, Oxford shirts in “Sunlight” yellow or “Hamptons Blue” lean into a more preppy world, but are easily brought back into the funk with the collaboration’s flared woolen pants in “Clay Brown.” This pair has a soft drape, falling from a high waist to the floor with a darted pleat all the way down for that quintessential vintage vibe.
The collaboration coincides with St. Vincent’s 2021 album Daddy’s Home, which plays into some of the graphics that adorn silk scarves and the lining of the aforementioned blazer. Speaking on the collaboration, St. Vincent said, “I’m thrilled to celebrate this Daddy’s Home era with the St. Vincent x GANT capsule collection. We interpreted the sleazy-1970s spirit into incredibly well-made pieces that people can wear in all kinds of ways — dressed up or casual, together or separate.”
