There are designers who specialize in one look – think Hervé Léger and his famous bandage dresses – and then there are those who offer a whole range of options. Andrew Gn falls into the latter category.
Lady Gaga in the mood to show off her legs in an LBD with an oversized lace collar? he is your man Queen Rania of Jordan needs an embroidered silk blouse for an official visit? Gn has them covered.
For Spring 2023, the designer created a haute-bohemian vibe with a collection that ranged from tunic and pant sets with acid-colored psychedelic prints to a cropped black cheongsam with oversized jewel buttons.
There were monochrome looks in bright lemon, coral, lime or fuchsia pink, some with cartoonishly large puffed sleeves. Or you can opt for pleated evening dresses and fresh day blouses with colorful floral prints. From short shorts to palazzo trousers, from mini to maxi, its hems satisfied all dispositions.
Gn made no apologies for his hodgepodge approach.
“We always have many, many options,” he said. “That’s because we have a very international clientele and also attract all age groups. We have different body types, different customers, different skin tones, different nationalities, from Asia to Africa and North America to the Middle East and Europe.”
They come for its signature opulent look: think crystal-embellished collar dresses like those worn by Kris Jenner in her recent Vogue cooking video; jeweled buttons and belts; Pleats and fringes as well as exclusive prints. “We design everything: the lace, the embroidery, the jewelry,” he reeled off.
As a result, the label, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year, is enjoying good business with retailers such as Bergdorf Goodman, Matchesfashion and Net-a-porter. It turns out that giving women what they want is always in fashion.
