Today was the debut of my dear friend Gerlan Marcel's fantastic new line of optimistic sportswear for men and women, GERLAN JEANS. Gerlan, alumni of London's Central Saint Martins, is the founder of Prints Please, NYC's most cutting edge textile design firm. In the past, Gerlan has been responsible for designing many of Jeremy Scott's most iconic graphics.
The salon-style presentation was held at the Bowery home of mega-über stylist Patricia Field. Pat had all her furniture removed! Also, there's a runway plank you have to walk down just to get into the main part of the apartment. Models were asked to be "Fierce n' Cute!" and ordered to wink and kiss at the camera. This fall, expect to see everyone buying their New Era hats in multiples of 4 for stacking them on all at once. I totally want the sunglasses wrapped in human hair! Afterward, everyone on the sidewalk agreed that it was the highlight of their fashion week and basically their entire lives.
GO GERLAN! SO PROUD OF YOU!!!
Check out the finale and see for yourself how GD adorable Miss Gerlan really is.
Here's a classic track that was part of her presentation:
