Embroidery is Andrew Gn
's middle name. For pre-fall, he came up with a lovely one, stitching cultured pearls into clusters so they resembled lily of the valley blooms. The effect looked charming on three-quarter-sleeve cocoon coats in charcoal and camel with black leather piping, but the contrast of the creamy white pearls against the brick-red skirt of a little dress really grabbed your attention. Black lace was also in abundance here. As far as materials go, it's a little more predictable than those pearls, but it was no less riveting when it embellished an optic white blouse or a fuchsia bolero. The third decorative element at work in the collection was bows, something he probably absorbed from Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent debut. Gn has scored a bunch of red-carpet coups of late. Emma Stone has been spotted in his little frocks on more than one occasion. The bronze sequins and beads on his sleeveless sixties-ish shift would make a nice complement to her fiery hair.
