Andrew Gn Fall 2010

Andew Gn’s Fall 2010 was held at the Les Beaux-Arts de Paris. The venue had a rich warm chocolate back drop and runway.

The looks which glided gown the runway were equally delicious.

Andrew was inspired by the Persanes Lettres written by Montesquieu. The collection had an eighteenth-century look, but Gn modernized it calling the collection “modern rococo.”

The Gothic military presentation started off with sensual velvets: skirts, coats, jacket and mini dresses.

The military touches came via the detailing on the jackets, the large buckled belts and the knee high boots which were accented with silver armor.

I’ve been surprised that ruffles have been such a huge trend for Fall. Gn presented them on coats, blouses, dresses and gowns.

I had to wait until Look 38 before I could drool over Gn evening gowns.

My favourites were the long sleeved navy blue gown, and the strapless silver gown with a lace overlay which was exquisite.

I couldn’t get enough of those cascading ruffles which snaked around the gown. I can see Kate Beckinsale going gaga over that gown.

Gn loves to present his look with cuffs, and this time they worked perfectly with the military theme. They came in silver, gold and the black ones were beautifully embellished.

Gn invited me to his studio in Paris, where I got to see those small beautiful details up close. The beaded embroidery is sensational.

    I love that metallic ruched mini with the two bows… it’d look great on Leighton Meester or one of the others from that young and edgy crowd!

    the top right silver is gorgeous..but the ruffle in the middle kind of ruins it for me.

    Is it just me, or do I hear the same guitar riff from the Versace runway show?

      Not sure, but a lot of shows played the same or similar music. It was quite strange
