Posted on

Relaxnews: What is the signature piece of this Spring/Summer 2014 collection?
Andrew Gn: A dress in an intense shade of blue, embroidered with a cubist-style profile. This Spring/Summer 2014 collection pays homage to extraordinary modern designers and artists such as Gio Ponti, Carlo Mollino, Fernand Léger, Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso and Peter Doig.

R: What personality, historical or contemporary, could wear every piece from your new collection?
AG: Peggy Guggenheim, a great art collector and a remarkable personality.

R: A film, an image, or a sound: what would best represent the spirit of your new collection?
AG: The Villa Noailles in Hyères, which inspired my “Façade” print among others.

R: If you could give Cara Delevingne a new look, what would you propose?
AG: A very short haircut, like Mia Farrow’s in “Rosemary’s Baby,” with a little dress in light, sheer white cotton with a geometric cutout pattern.

R: If you could design the costumes for a film adaptation of a well-known work, which would you choose?
AG: A fabulous vampire story that would travel through time and space. “The Hunger” with Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie is one of my all-time favorite films.

R: How do you see the luxury and fashion industries evolving over the coming years?
AG: Towards a bipolarization of the markets: the high-end will become increasingly exceptional, while the low-end grows more and more mediocre. But also, towards a bipolarization of the creative side: fashion houses and stylists that nourish the creative essence, and pirates that steal and copy with impunity.
