GAMUT Spring Summer 2020 Collection
While the first collection aimed to lay down the foundation of a shared vocabulary, the second GAMUT's collection is a free continuation of this collective work with a nod to the traditional codes of clothing and accessories. GAMUT collaborated with Messalina Mescalina, a Lyon-based drag queen whose gender- twisting performance work and highly artistic approach inspired the group to focus on doubles, duality and the baring of the interior. Moreover, the muse of the collection — Messalina Mescalina —becomes a photographic pattern for the jersey pieces. GAMUT pursues its mix of genres by taking over old-fashioned couture codes, opening unexpected windows on the body and developing an open and unisex wardrobe. The chosen techniques and finishes focus on ultra-artisanal suits and technical pieces designed in an industrial manner.
GAMUT places great importance on textile ennobling — embroidery, silkscreening, silk painting — while developing its knitwear line, interpreted in summer creations. Alternating rigorous cuts and organic shapes, the SS20 collection is the result of an experimental back-and-forth between the members of the GAMUT collective.
