Singapore-born Andrew Gn pays homage to Cubists at Paris fashion
PARIS (AFP) - Andrew Gn on Sunday paid tribute to his favourite artists and designers including Cubists Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso in an art-inspired collection held fittingly at Paris's Palais des Beaux-Arts.
Singapore-born Gn 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 can assemble furniture and art works to create a unique interior world," he said.
Sleeveless belted sheath dresses were 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.
