Andrew Gn’s 2015 pre-fall collection added a dash of luxurious charm for a seventies inspired romantic affair with silk, sequins and motif.
The collection something so special and unique, something that I still can’t put my finger on. Perhaps the fact that Gn drew inspiration from rich tapestries and had fabric specially manufactured for him, to help create a line dripping in authenticity and one of a kind artisanal styles.
To help create the colourful woven motif used for the dresses, skirts and jackets, the designer worked with Italy’s Clerici Tessuto. To complete the looks, added decadence was given to the garments with graphic embroideries and hand-fringed trims.
Spotted printed on the silk crêpe and satin by use of traditional techniques were Persian vein and Iznik ceramics that’s rooted in the tile-motif brocade and carnation flowers.
The evening gowns were a grandeur display of medieval essence in the bustier ball gowns, some of which Gn dabbled with an Ikat-style motif in coloured sequins.
Andrew Gn brought out a more youthful atmosphere to the bellowing hippie nostalgia with peasant blouses, shorts, cropped pants, cocooning coats and a flared pantsuits. Modesty and conservative looks were also given the luxurious revamp by soft intricate lace detailing.
