Keta Gutmane SS18 @ Paris Berg Showroom

September 29 until October 4, Keta Gutmane's spring/summer 2018 collection is available for orders at Berg Showroom during the Paris Fashion Week / Femme. With its roots in contemporary tailoring, deconstruction and demi-couture techniques, KETA GUTMANE transfers the codes of classic mens' wardrobe onto a woman's body. The brand flirts with sporty elegant streetwear and other urban cliches and provides for a casually democratic silhouette which blends traditional artistry with contemporary tailoring. Subtle femininity is further supported by textural contrasts that incorporate agile, durable and functional fabrics whereas the monochrome palette has fresh color accents each season. The brand is a Woolmark Prize nominee; its stockist list
stretches worldwide.

Q&A and SS16 in The Brvtalist Mag

Fashion can be viewed in many different contexts. Is it purely functional? Is it purely aesthetic? Is it something else entirely? We love when designers explore these questions and create their own unique narrative and that is exactly what Latvian fashion house Keta Gutmane does so well. Her collections are urban, progressive and brush aside any societal inhibitors to create womenswear that is classic yet undoubtedly fresh.
