Andrew Gn S/S 2010 / PFW / Day five

“It’s a romantic collection,” said Andrew Gn, pre-show. “I just want to make beautiful things.” Sometimes simpler said than done. But Gn marched to his cue with clothes that were chic and beautiful. He started with the basics — tailoring — embellishing neatly silhouetted jackets with hand-enameled pansy buttons or a flirty organza flower appliqué. Then Gn juiced things up with a bolero sporting patchwork lace sleeves or dappled a shimmering mineral-like appliqué on a black silk dress. His vibrant leaf print draped dresses and dramatic floor-sweeping silk mousseline halter gowns in violet or electric blue are sure to help a woman command the attention she craves. With their fine and intricate craft, these gowns are obviously destined for someone with a recession-proof pocketbook. Or, as Gn suggested backstage, at least it’s a way to palliate economic blues by making a woman feel gorgeous.
