Collection Review

Marie Christine-Statz’s designs are simple, yet, stunning, with subtle bursts of intrigue. Art references also come into play with a grass green motif pulled from a 2022 Camille Henrot painting, along with erotic sketches printed on a halter top and maxi dress. Such drawings are reminiscent of American artist Basquiat. 

With a particularity for perfect tailoring, Statz deviates from tradition with asymmetrical silhouettes, and slits cut into jackets, skirts, and trousers. Look 2 is a bandage top with a sheer black skirt and a single slit at the knee. Statz experiments with different fabric weights such as loden, a heavy wool fabric, and viscose meant to resemble canvas. Meanwhile, large pleats add shape and dimensions to the fabrics. The manipulations of the garments, however, may yield different results depending on who’s wearing them.

Behind The Brand

German-born Marie Christine-Statz studied at Parsons School of Design in New York. She received a qualification in Haute Couture at the École de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. Later, GAUCHERE came to life with the Spring/Summer 2013 debut at Paris Fashion Week. Precise tailoring as well as individuality have always been at the heart of the brand. Statz’s appreciation for fabrics as they are translates into experimentation with geometric structures and volumes. In 2014 and 2015, Statz became a finalist in the ANDAM Fashion Awards. 

“Live and let live” remains the attitude of the brand. GAUCHERE also ensures its dedication to the environment through the use of raw materials and advanced technologies.

The full Winter 2023 collection is available for viewing on the brand’s site, as well as all of its previous collections. GAUCHERE’s online catalog includes ready-to-wear garments along with pieces from the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
