Andrew Gn Spring 2012

Andrew Gn’s Spring 2012 collection was inspired by his Japanese grandmother’s kimonos, plus he envisioned a meeting between Madame de Pompadour and Madame butterfly.

This resulted in very elegant mini dresses and coat dresses with kimono sleeves and origami details.

We also saw coat dresses, tweed coats and belted trench coats.

I loved the rich brocade pieces which looked that much more luxurious with jewelled appliqués.

The collection started off with mostly angelic white looks, before moving on to black, gold and light lilac looks.

For the final part of the collection we saw a burst of colour which really allowed the jewel details to pop.

From look 36 I was in heaven. Eveningwear started off with a gorgeous metallic bustier gown with rococo embroidery which I can picture on someone with a regal air like Keira Knightley.

Electric blue, red, lemon, rose and a selection of white gowns, which could make worthy wedding gowns, took my breath away.

This collection provided a beautiful mix of youthful mini dresses with red-carpet-worthy gowns. The gorgeous colours were a perfect ‘pick me up’ on a sunny Sunday morning.

Key accessories included Andrew Gn’s signature jewel cuffs, embellished leaf headpieces and multi-colour platform strappy sandals.

Favourites: Neon yellow dress with origami sleeves and blue long sleeve gown

Who I See Wearing This Collection: January Jones, Michelle Monaghan, Emma Stone, Keira Knightley, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kirsten Dunst, Zooey Deschanel, Eva Mendes, Emily Blunt, Amy Adams, Anne Hathaway and Kristen Stewart

Andrew Gn was kind enough to give me a look from his Fall 2011 collection which I wore to his show. The ivory loose-fitted shirt was just what I needed on a very hot day in Paris. I’ve realized the key to wearing leather pants in hot weather is to wear a size up.

    Really wonderful! I think you look fantastic – maybe you could have swapped the trousers for little leather shorts? Oh yes!

    • Fashion Critic October 3, 2011 at 16:29 #

      Yes, shorts would have been cute

    FC you look better than the model in that outfit. The nipples are so tasteless and your hair done isn’t so severe. Also your shoes are way more interesting

    • Fashion Critic October 3, 2011 at 18:57 #

      Ahhhh… I wish ;)

    You look fantastic! Excellent play on proportions with oversized top and skinny trousers! I also adore hair parted on one side. Very classic Hollywood chic! Is your bag Celine?

    That top left coatdress with a little length added, would look good on Michelle Obama I think.

  11. rebecca October 3, 2011 at 15:53 #

    You look stunning FC :) Although I have to ask you something, did he actually GIVE you the shirt or did he just lend it to you? Either way, you are one very lucky girl :)

    • Fashion Critic October 3, 2011 at 16:26 #

      He gave it to me :)

      • rebecca October 3, 2011 at 16:38 #

  14. Hermoine October 3, 2011 at 16:15 #

    I was absolutely blown away by this collection. I love the attention to details. I wish the dress code for shopping at target was a little fancier, I would be all over his evening wear.

  15. Cheryl October 3, 2011 at 17:01 #

    I love this collection. It is like a cross between subtle oriental and Grecian goddess. I want one of those hairbands! Btw if possible you must lay your fingers on at least some of the dresses! I saw a few looks which I thought you would look superb in! Like the beautiful yellow dress :)

  16. mm October 3, 2011 at 17:09 #
