Threeasfour Comes Full Circle

Renata Espinosa
February 05th, 2007 @ 10:13 PM - New York

“We’re all grown up and we’re a woman now,” said Ange, one third of the design collective known of Threeasfour, after a polished and refined showing on February 3 on a cold Saturday evening.

Gabi, Adi and Ange certainly have come a long way since their separation in 2005 with Kai Kuhne, who now shows on his own under the Myself moniker. They delved into more commercial pursuits with their denim collections, but now it seems they’re ready to get dressed up again.

Rather than staging an outrageous performance at a downtown gallery, as they did for many collections, ThreeAsFour opted for a traditional runway show at the elegant and upscale confines of the National Arts Club across the street from one of New York’s chicest addresses, Gramercy Park.

While they haven’t strayed from their signature tailoring concept of round contours and spiraling shapes, they refined it and instead of over-the-top, unwearable pieces of sculpture they softened the forms and toned down the stiffness of past volume.

It’s much more feminine for us,” said Adi. “We girls really pushed for it.”

A cascading train of spirals on an asymmetrical gown in emerald green had a loop at the end allowing it to be thrown over the shoulder, like a purse, presumably when one’s red carpet photo op is finished.

Other successful pieces included Art Nouveau-esque quilted jackets in a brilliant palette of fushcia, teal and emerald green, colors that have been popping up this week signaling perhaps a modernist shift away from the reliance on metallics for pop.

Of course, it wouldn’t be an Threefsfour show without a few novel styling tricks up their sleeves. There were a few hoods and head wraps, a chic alternative to a hair-smashing hat. The other was a purse, round of course, with an attached glove that made up part of the handbag.

“We’re not insecure anymore, we don’t need it anymore,” said Ange, referring to their past reliance on spectacle.

Said just like a woman.
