Chelsea Flower Show

Andrew GN Resort 15

London’s Chelsea Flower Show, that Andrew Gn visited with his mother when he was a child, has influenced the Andrew Gn Resort 2015 Collection, which pays tribute to English gardens.

Some Chelsea Flower Show’s collaborations : Gucci (Gucci took part in the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show by presenting a garden, created by Sarah Eberle, which was based on the brand’s iconic « Flora » print), Liberty of London (Tamara Salman for Liberty of London designed a scarf to celebrate the 2008 Chelsea Flower Show), Susannah Hunter (the handbag designer, who produces the Chelsea Flower Show’s official bag each year, and who has created the Chelsea Flower Show’s logo in 2009, has created a garden, influenced by Emily Dickinson’s poetry, for the 2013 Chelsea Flower Show, in collaboration with Catherine Macdonald).

Georges Braque

Andrew Gn SS14 Georges Braque

Georges Braque’s « The Birds » painting was one of the references of the Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2014 Show, dubbed « The Peggy Guggenheim Collection ».

Other Georges Braque-inspired collections : Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012 (cubist painters such as Georges Braque were honored in this show), Pamella Roland Autumn/Winter 2008-2009 (this collection paid homage to Georges Braque’s bold use of color and to the French painter’s personal elegance), Yves Saint Laurent Couture Spring/Summer 1988 (this collection was a tribute to Georges Braque and to cubism).

Fernand Léger

Andrew Gn SS14 Fernand Léger

Fernand Léger’s 1926 « Blue Guitar and Vase » painting was one of the inspirations of the Andrew Gn Spring/Summer 2014 Show, titled « The Peggy Guggenheim Collection ».

Other Fernand Léger-influenced collections : Alexis Bittar Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Fernand Léger’s paintings were referenced in this jewelry collection), John Galliano Spring/Summer 2011 (one outfit of this show, which was an homage to Maria Lani, evoked the portrait of Maria Lani that Fernand Léger painted), Louise Gray Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (some motifs were based on Fernand Léger’s work).

Moreover, Yves Saint Laurent, who owned Fernand Léger’s masterpieces in his art collection, also drew inspiration from the French painter.
