GAUGE81 redefines tailored comfort. Striking angles and playful proportions blur the lines between evening and casualwear. At once familiar and innovative, every piece showcases a fresh take on contemporary classics by flirting with scale and retro references. Their debut AW 2019 collection will launch with retailers worldwide including Net-A-Porter & ShopBop.A study in contrast, GAUGE81 is the love child of Monika Silva, a Colombian knitwear maven with a decade of industry experience. To steer the brand’s creative vision, she enlisted Amsterdam based fashion consultant Gijsje Ribbens—an ongoing contributor of Vogue Netherlands, and knitwear designer Fira Rietveld, formerly of The Row and Calvin Klein. Together, they honed a maiden collection of calculated restraint and femininity that alludes to the crisp, no fuss 90s with a dash of Sex and the City.
