What to Expect
How much can you experiment with denims, especially in summer? After all, denims are not usually the right fabric choice for warm weather. But with light washes and a strong focus on the colour offering for both men and women, the casuals at GAS seem interesting this season.
The GAS Spring/Summer 2013 collection experiments with all shades of indigo, and treatments of varying intensity from raw to a strong wash. The bright colours of the women’s collection are a homage to spring, playing with strong contrasts between light and dark colours. The GAS folks call this the “chiaroscuro” effect (pronounced kia-ros-kuro).
Meanwhile, the surprise addition is pastels for men, since lighter hues have not exactly been the choice of colour for Indian guys. But I think at least a handful of cool Indian men might be willing to wear coral, peach and aqua green. The “raw used” look continues, and so do dusty, neutral shades of gray and light blue.
What to Buy and How to Wear
Wear the GAS fluo jeggings with sleek printed tops; or pair neon blouses with neutrals.
The printed reversible jeggings are best worn with feminine blouses in light hues of yellow, pink, green and light blue
Pastels for men: Pastel chinos + denim shirts OR Pastel tees + dark jeans.
