Paris Fashion Week Runway Review: Andrew GN SS15

Andrew GN’s Spring Summer 15 collection was a sheer treat for the eyes, to say the least. An eccentric concoction of floral prints, geometric shapes and textured fabrics were the focus of the show.

Presented on a backdrop reminiscent of the 1960s, box shaped dresses, mini skirts, mismatched patterns and geometric shapes were clear nods to the era but Andrew rebelled against past restrictive feminine ideals and used his touch to punctuate these ladylike vibes with a modern edginess.

The show had an eclectic formulation of contrasting elements. Rich, vibrant colour blocking sat in stark contrast to blended pastel hues; sharp angular shapes appeared next to soft florals; and structured ensembles played against the occasional loose fitting garment. Texture was manipulated throughout the show with designs hosting decadent embroidery, high shine fabrics, dreamy silks and sheer paneling.

What started off as a largely monochromatic palette, progressed with clever pops of colour and quickly evolved into dresses that were complete works of art covered in watercolour-like paintings and overlayed with more texture and detailing.

There were hints of Andrew’s Asian heritage dispersed throughout the collection with wrap dresses, skirts and obi waist belts providing sharp angular lines which was a pleasant divergent from the many paisley prints.

The stand out garments were the eveningwear with low décolletage and a fitted waist that showcased sheer floating fabrics. Although the body-con mini with paint like details, full sleeves and detailed embellishment was hard to go past.

Andrew GN once again provided us with a collection nothing short of stunning, and his attention to detail did not go unnoticed. Any piece from this upbeat collection would make the perfect bold addition to any summer wardrobe.
