It might not be the very first time when Andrew Gn injected his collections with the graphic elements adopted from the Arts and Crafts Movement that flourished between the 1860s and 1910s, but his approach to the movement born out of ideals is slightly different now that the designer accumulated enough experience to put a distinct spin on the pioneering spirit of reform. Built upon elegant lines and structured shapes, the collection evoked simplicity in silhouettes, only to allow the surface details and luxurious treatments to stand out and advocate for the modern spirit of the show.
Bright hues, rich fabrics and exquisite black velvet appliques embellished the A-line mini skirts, the delicate blouses and shift dresses all throughout the first half of the collection. After that it all turned black and white, when variations of the same restrained silhouettes came down the runway touched by the timeless color combination with the focus switched on superb coats and breathtaking evening-gowns. Prince of Wales checks, cashmere ornaments and leather inserts defined the outerwear display, while dreamlike butterfly and lace appliqués alongside alluring sheer panels helped shape the red carpet worthy segment of the collection.
