In numerology, the number 81 is considered a calling to release the old and begin looking to the new. Cue GAUGE81. The Amsterdam-based label was established by Monika Silva in 2019, who is bringing the sexy back with her designs (à la Justin Timberlake). Alongside Vogue Netherlands editor-at-large Gijsje Ribbens and Dutch designer Fira Rietveld, who previously worked at The Row and Calvin Klein, the label showcases a fresh take on nostalgic femininity. Flirting with retro references in every skirt, top and dress, the collection exudes pared-down '90s with a dash of Sex and the City.
