PARIS - Andrew Gn paid tribute to his favourite artists and designers including Cubists Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in an art-inspired collection held at Palais des Beaux-Arts on Sunday.
He also named Italian architects and designers Gio Ponti and Carlo Mollino as influences on his spring/summer 2014 collection.
"I took it on myself to transport the energy of their visual language to clothes -- just as one assemble furniture and art works to create a unique interior world," he said.
His collection included sleeveless belted sheath dresses overlaid with black python lace and trimmed with black ribbon while silk shorts in mint green or black were teamed with tops with Braque-inspired doves and stars applique.
Other elegant looks included tailored white dresses with black trim and an electric blue shift dress with a Cubist-inspired inset.
