German designer Marie-Christine Statz is based in Paris, where her Gauchère collection is made. Only in its second season, this is a label to watch.

For fall, Statz was inspired by Russian sculptor Igor Mitoraj’s fragments of neoclassical Grecian statues. Thus she placed appliqué patches on organza dresses and leather suits, and played with textures of hard and soft, shiny and matte. These surface details — the core of Statz’s designs — had a bit of a graphic and futuristic flavor, yet the silhouettes were simple and wearable, notably the short dresses with rounded volumes, some done in cozy quilted jersey.
