Justin Gall is an American designer who combines his strengths in human physiology, art, graphic design, and garment design to create the modern world of GALL. A rare breed of designer who takes pride in doing it all himself. From his modular design, to his abstract prints and graphics, to the finished product shots in each lookbook, which he styles and shoots himself. Working in this way— his vision and creations can travel a path of evolution and consistency without distraction or reliance on others.
BRAND LAUNCH DATE 2014
GALL was born in 2014 by it’s founders Justin Gall and Chaira Nardelli Gall whom was born and raised in Rome. The first GALL collection was entitled ‘Absterrestrial’ for the SS15 season.
GALL’S LATEST COLLECTION FOR AW20-21 FINDS ITS BASES ON THE CONTINUOUS WORK OF THE DESIGNER. AS IF COLLECTIONS ARE NOT SEPARATED ENTITIES, JUSTIN WORKS IN A CONSISTENT STORY, AIMING TO SPEAK ABOUT EVOLUTION, SELF REFLECTION AND IMPROVEMENT. ALTHOUGH ALL GALL COLLECTIONS ARE INTERCONNECTED WITH ONE ANOTHER, IT IS DEFINITE THAT THE DESIGNER ALWAYS BRINGS SOMETHING NEW TO THE TABLE.
IN THIS COLLECTION, CALLED “OMNIA” THE THREE PRIMARY COLORS OF RED, GREEN, AND BLUE WILL COEXIST TOGETHER IN HARMONY, IN BALANCE WITH EACH OTHER, AND FEEDING OFF OF EACH OTHERS CHARACTERISTICS TO ENHANCE ONE ANOTHER, JUST LIKE IN NATURE, JUST LIKE IN THE “EVERYTHING” AS WE KNOW IT. THE COLORS OF THE RESEARCHED, DISRUPTED, AND ELABORATED FABRICS WILL MEET THE THE ORIGINAL DESIGNER’S ARTWORKS; AND ALL OF WHICH WILL BE EMBEDDED IN THE TYPICAL, NOW ICONIC GALL SHELL. A STYLE THAT IS UNIQUE AND RECOGNIZABLE TO SAY THE LEAST. ITEMS ARE EXPERIMENTAL, PERFORMING AND TECHNOLOGICALLY DRIVEN TO GIVE THE MAXIMUM PROTECTION TO WHOMEVER WEARS THEM. THE RESEARCH OF FABRICS SPEAK IN AN EXCELLENT SYNERGY BETWEEN NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC, MEETING GREAT PERFORMANCE IN FULL RESPECT OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND ANIMAL WORLD (BEING GALL VEGAN SINCE 2015). THE VOLUMINOUS ITEMS IN THE COLLECTIONS ARE NOT PACKED WITH ANIMAL FEATHERS, BUT INSTEAD WITH FAUX FEATHER MATERIAL COMING FROM RECYCLED PLASTIC. THE FUNCTIONALITY OF EACH ITEM IS ALWAYS KEY IN EACH GALL COLLECTION, SUCH AS: DETACHABLE POCKETS, RETRACTIBLE HOODS, AND MODULAR SEGMENTS GIVING SPACE FOR TRANSFORMABILITY, COMFORT, AND EASINESS IN BOTH EVERYDAY MOMENTS AND EXTREME CONDITIONS. THE COLLECTION ITSELF IS MOTIVATED THROUGH A DIRECT CONTRAST/ CONTINUATION OF THE PREVIOUS COLLECTION - ‘NIHIL’, REPRESENTING THE “NOTHINGNESS” WITHOUT WHICH “EVERYTHING” COULD NOT SIMPLY BE. THE PURPOSE OF AIMING TO AN ENTIRE EQUILIBRIUM. A UNITY REACHING A STATE OF WHOLESOME AND EQUALITY WITHIN THE “ALL” AS A HOPE FOR SOCIETY AND COEXISTING HARMONY, WHICH INCLUDES ALL OF OUR HUMAN IMPERFECTIONS AND INADEQUACIES.
