GIOIA SEGHERS

A graduate of the renowned La Cambre Mode[s] in Brussels -where she still lives and works- Gioia Seghers wins several awards in 2012 with her Final Year collection, including the prestigious Dior, Weekend Fashion Awards, Libre Essentielle and RA prizes. Gaining instant attention from international press and buyers, her striking and sculptural clothes distinguish themselves from the rest, timeless and delicate at the same time. Following her graduation show, she is invited by the Musée de la Dentelle de Caudry in France to exhibit selected silhouettes, underlining her innovative and refreshing use of lace.

In 2013, Seghers decides to launch her eponymous line, focusing on refined and high-end womenswear. Pursuing her ongoing research around textiles and original shapes, she enters the Showroom [les belges] competition and wins a spot in October, allowing her to showcase and sell her clothes during Paris Fashion Week. In February 2014, she presents her first ready-to-wear collection within No Season's showroom. 

Ambiguous and intricate, Gioia Seghers' style is a study in contradictions, hovering between sensual femininity and sharp structure. Her vision of fashion is personal and intense, unveiling subtle emotions. Strongly influenced by her grandmother's elegance -whose Italian roots and poise impressed her as a child- Seghers infuses her clothes with a deep sense of respect, reworking the notion of a contemporary wardrobe, which speaks to women in an intimate way. Transparency, eyelets and lace are some of her signatures, as well as a European sense of sophistication.

Her Shifting Rythm, spring summer 2016

Focusing on tighly edited clothes -and a restrained color palette of white, beige and black- Gioia Seghers develops her own take on simplicity, looking for a precise balance between embellishment and wearability. Inspired by choreographer Lucinda Childs' Dance, a 1979 performance made in collaboration with artists Philip Glass and Sol LeWitt, Seghers explores the appeal of fluidity within structured frameworks, creating graceful movements around the female form. Despite working on highly tailored shapes, her clothes seem to evolve around the body freely, creating a sense of nonchalance. Willing to emphasize ease, as well as lightness, the Belgian designer conceives garments that can be transformed and worn in two different ways, using asymmetrical hems to dynamize the silhouette. A pair of tailored pants features a panel detail, which gives the illusion of a long skirt when worn across the waist. A roomy, unstructured trench becomes an instant classic, easy to layer over Seghers' soft separates. Revisiting the featherweight fishnet she introduced last summer, she places it on key items to obtain playful transparencies, revealing skin while concealing it. Envisaging fringing in unusual ways, she adds more surface interest to everyday clothes. Her choice of fabrics is selective as well, underlining a crisp and refined hand. From cool wool and organza to linen and viscose, Seghers evokes the tactile pleasures of a fleeting summer. A few pieces are unlined this season, caressing the wearer like a second skin.
