GALLANT  Direction File Download

A rebellious streak runs riot as raised surfaces and irregularity surprises and generates a sense of fun in bright synthetics aspects, working in a kitsch through to a brilliant modern techno appeal. Pushing the boundaries and defying playing it safe, Gallant skims the edge of eccentricity as fabric surfaces attract the eye from the continuation of lucid metallics to plastic shine, pearlised and polished in exaggerated allover placement or used subtly as an accent.

In a gray world some frivolity has to feature, reflected through the sheen of substrates to the colors used across the seasons through to irregular textural appeal. Escapism features in unruly structures and luminosity unravels in different specters from artificial modernity to irregular surface structures in welcoming bright tones. Luxury features, with silk and cashmere, juxtaposed against the ruggedness of unrefined cotton and wool contrasting with metaloplastic filament and hints of fluorescent fantasy.
