There seems to be a clear divide in the fashion world right now: those going back-to-basics with minimalism and those embracing loud, Gaga-fied fashions like the Gerlan ‘Peace and Love Inc’ collection. Granted, this is Gerlan’s natural style.
Designing with the question of extraterrestrial contact in mind, the Gerlan ‘Peace and Love Inc’ collection further questions the idea of reality and customs. For example, when asked about her stacked hat creation, she cleverly observes, “how do aliens know how many baseball caps to wear?”
Full of funky prints and 90s throwbacks, you can see some of Gerlan’s pieces worn by Beyonce in her ‘Video Phone’ music video.
