关于Gladys Ave

Gladys Ave由留英设计师罗然于2017年在上海创立。得益于效力新潮设计师品牌和百年男装高定屋的多重阅历,在深谙时尚风向动态的专业眼光下,她更理解一件服装的好质感离不开工艺打磨和精湛细节。将男装高定所倡导的对工艺精打细磨,与女装风尚追崇的唯美视角相结合是罗然致力已久的个人愿景,坚持着实用主义与理想态度,Gladys Ave由此成立。

“理解衣服”在罗然看来是做好产品的基础,亦是Gladys Ave的立牌之本。衣服,既是一种抽象的载体,承载着每一位现代女性的坚持和信仰,是有内涵、有故事、有创新,层次饱满的精神世界。但同时,它又是一件真实的物品,只有穿在身上,才能感受到面料、廓形和细节等微妙存在。从概念到现实,只有做到深入浅出,一件有灵魂的优质单品才能诞生。精益求精的不懈态度贯穿在Gladys Ave的每一个系列中,设计师罗然表示:“我希望自己做的每一个系列都比上一个好,呈现出新女性的进步姿态。” 完美或许无法即刻达成,但追随完美的脚步不会停止。为此,设计师亲自试装每一件样衣,在高标准的制作工序之后,确保每件成衣在工艺、面料、细节等综合体验上达到理想效果。制作能够满足真实需求,与此同时形神俱佳的好衣服成为Gladys Ave的坚持方向。

品牌倡导现代女性柔中有刚、优雅中自带智慧、浪漫且得体的新女性审美态度。发现自我、认识自我并坚持自我,展现发自内心的女性美,是Gladys Ave女孩与众不同却又恰到好处的迷人特质,品牌设计表现手法浪漫雅致、复古而带有女性主义魅力,既梦幻又唯美。色系上整体采用丰富的灰色色调,素雅多姿。面料经过特别臻选,独具温柔的高级质感,大范围采用刺绣、提花、格纹等具有识别度的面料。媲美定制工艺水准的精巧细节为整体大幅增色。不规则设计打造适度露肤,把性感和优雅平衡得恰到好处。高腰线设计凸显腰身,修饰身姿,带来美丽的同时更带来自信。于常规之处作切入点,做出独具品牌特色的经典耐穿单品。
