A year ago, Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad founded PERRET SCHAAD.
The duo presented their debut summer and winter collections in 2010 at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in Berlin.
The contrast in the duo’s personal creative characteristics is the key element in PERRET SCHAAD’s signature.
PERRET SCHAAD is elegant construction, inventive eloquence of cut and articulation through expressive fabrics.
The design process is based on an ongoing curiosity and a need for development resulting in a symbiosis of experiment and finesse.
In this AW 2011/12 collection, hard white softens a landscape of grey pastel stones. The candid sky seems shy, although provoking layers of pigmented lights. Pale green and discrete rose shine on satin, while petrol blues almost fall into deep greens.
PERRET SCHAAD are obsessed with questioning themselves about contrasts and originative coherence in their conception of colors, fabrics and pattern cutting.
They study technical surfaces in plastic lagoon and pretentious red tones, confronting the to the natural and fine touch of wools and rich silks in a pastel palette.
The designers work the cutting and the draping to bring forms into sculpture and fluidity. They challenge volumes and lines, using simplicity with delicacy and insolence.
PERRET SCHAAD contemplate modesty with ambition. They require the finest quality, finding it in innovation as well as in tradition.
The esthetic of PERRET SCHAAD s AW 2011/12 collection is uncomplicated, the cutting refined, the garments dialogue between harmony and contradiction.
PERRET SCHAAD garments reveal to women their own vision and celebrate unicity.
