GANT FALL/WINTER 2018: CELEBRATING TOGETHERNESS
For Fall/Winter 2018 GANT celebrates Togetherness. The collection is all about how life is so much better – and bigger – when we spend time with others. Inspiration comes from the ivy-clad colleges of New England where students come together in the spirit of learning. The collection includes the iconic and the innovative. A palette of natural shades combined with cheerful reds and greens brings brightness to the season.
April, Stockholm, Sweden
Created for the curious and active consumer, the FW18 collection presents iconic garments with classic silhouettes, as well as innovative pieces with advanced technical features. Inspired by Togetherness, the collection includes pieces suitable for all gatherings, from a family get-together at home to a sophisticated holiday party.
In line with the GANT credo of Never Stop Learning, the collection includes some exciting new pieces such as tailored suits and blazers that can be machine-washedat home. Other innovations include GANT Stormhaven, a smart waterproof shoe for rainy days, available in five different colors for both men and women.
Outerwear pieces play a central role in the collection. For womenswear, expect checked coats and playful use
of materials that add interest and character. Menswear builds on traditional pieces, plus stand-out items in bold
colors such as a parka in a brilliant shade of red. Knitwear takes inspiration from traditional Fair Isle sweaters. The unique patterns and strong tones create a modern take on a preppy classic.
One special highlight this season is the launch of GANT’s brand-new line of premium leather bags for women. The timeless, feminine and modern preppy collection consists of three sizes of bag to suit all kinds of occasions. The bags are made in vegetable tanned leather, prepared with natural, more sustainable tannins to give a deep color and rich patina. The bags come in five colors: Black, Navy, Argan Oil, Pine Green and Winter Wine.
As Holiday Season draws near GANT launches the last drop of the year. It includes festive pieces with beautiful silhouettes in exclusive textiles. Key items for her include a full-length sequin skirt and a classic tie-blouse. Naturally, the tuxedo takes a leading role: in velvet for women and in a more classic design for men but in a striking dark navy.
Just as the colors of nature shift from one month to the next, so the collection matures and the spectrum develops. The palette contains natural shades of brown and beige, as well as darker tones of gray and navy. Cheerful red and green brighten things up as the season cools down. Out with high summer – in with high hygge.
