For its Spring-Summer 2022 collection, GUNTHER draws its inspiration from the traditional French school, both ancient and modern. Entitled L’école est finie, the collection alludes to the last day of school, the feeling of freedom that floats in the air and which is reflected in the designs and cuts. Halfway between “Les 400 coups” by François Truffaud and “Les Choristes” by Christophe Barratier, this collection evokes both the nonchalance and the elegance of the schoolchildren of yesteryear, combined with a modern and trendy aesthetic specific to GUNTHER.

In the manner of the schoolboys who scribble on the wooden tables, GUNTHER develops this season new original fabrics logoed with the NT monogram (jacquard), and an exclusive check pattern, drawn freehand.

The cuts of the pieces are meant to be free, some pants and jackets are versatile (removable, detachable), shorts are elegant and fitted while shirts float in the wind with a semblance of sloppiness. Fabrics are used both right side up and upside down, buttons are mixed, there is also a play around the idea of patched clothes (pockets falsely torn, or falsely cut and badly sewn). We find traditional pieces revisited under the blow of modernity: polo, pants with claws, velvet shorts, blouse, etc..

Once again, the place of knitting and hand crocheting is important, with new typical pieces such as the tank top or the cardigan.

For the project GUNTHER decided to collaborate with a kindergarten. The children of a class of Grande section revisited in their way the GUNTHER logo as well as the name of the collection L’école est finie. These original designs are be used on the embroidery pieces.

This collection celebrates above all the work of the hand, the handwritten work at the same time of the writing, the embroidery, the drawing but also the typically French knitting. The mix of traditional and modern cuts, materials and shapes is the essence of this collection.
