This duo is new; 2009 brand new. Educated at Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee and groomed in the offices of Givenchy and Yurkevich, Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad ( PERRET SCHAAD) has brought refreshing elegance back into Haute couture. This is not a showcase of frills and thrills. Recently exhibited at RENDEZ-VOUS Femme Showroom in Paris, PERRET SCHAAD was a respite from French flamboyance.
The purity of their pieces forces a second glance from the viewer. To describe them as “simple” would be a grave insult. Subtle yes, yet there is an acute complexity in the seemingly uncalculated material behavior and use of color, evoking a sense of dignified and natural grace. It could only be described as German Elegance. Having already participated in several International Fashion & Design Competitions, PERRET SCHAAD is certainly not a name to disregard!
