Taking opulence to new levels was Paris-based Gaspard Yurkievich, showing his SS12 ‘Counterpoint’ collection in the astounding venue of Le Grand Hotel on Right-bank Paris. Yurkievich joined the world of prêt-à-porter with his first women’s collection in 1998, before branching into a career in menswear and footwear back in 2003. With ‘Counterpoint’, it was a true spectacle to note womenswear and menswear were in equal measure.

For women, Yurkievich has a new take on prep; smart button-down collars and tuxedo shirts are given flair with eye-popping citrus colours. Butter-softness was brought to the table with mauve, peach and spring-fresh makeup. Menswear irked on the sensible side with navy and beige, but were interjected with panelling and inspired button fastenings.
