With English gardens in mind, especially London’s Chelsea Flower Show, which he visited as a child with his mother, Andrew Gn showed a delicate collection with an old-fashioned feel. Long gowns and cocktail dresses came in myriad flower motifs including hydrangeas, pansies and hibiscuses, worked on rich brocades and printed satins and organzas.

The palette mixed pastels with bright yellow, green and orange for a bit of a Seventies wallpaper twist. Pretty embroidered organza and guipure blouses had a grandmotherly feel but looked fresh with Bermuda shorts, while asymmetric hemmed dresses in layers of flowery guipure embroidery with grosgrain bow belts had the dashing allure of Eighties Lacroix couture.
