Andrew Gn’s Spring 2011 collection was inspired by the late 60s and early 70s after a trip to London’s Portobello Road.

The fashion show begins with a parade of white maxi peasant dresses that was worn by beautiful models with white flower hairpins and platform cork wedges. The color story continues in neutral tones of blacks, browns, and khakis, but lightens up with teal, purple, and pink ensembles. Even paisley print makes the occasional appearances in a tailored jumpsuit, tunic, belted trench, and trousers. Not everything worked: a white cotton dress with a small flower print resembled a conservative nightgown, and the butterfly embellishments seemed oddly immature relative to the rest of the collection.

Furthermore, while his use of turbans and knotted headscarves added a polished touch to the looks, the mesh headpieces too closely resembled cafeteria hairnets to really be taken seriously. While Andrew Gn Pre-Spring collection is a ric rac-lined exercise in whimsy retro, the Spring/Summer 2011 collection is full-on old-fashioned romance. Romantic white eyelet maxi dresses opened the show. Deep jewel tones, ruffles and multi tiered skirts are key features in this season’s offering.

While Andrew Gn created a collection teeming with beautiful silhouettes and wearable clothing, he seemed to simply recreate looks from the 70s more than truly reinterpret them within a modern context. Still, the Andrew Gn Spring 2011 collection offers an array of flattering and sophisticated styles that will be right on trend for the season.
