With his mixed Chinese and Japanese ancestry, his upbringing in Singapore, his further education in England, Andrew Gn is a citizen of the world, which fully reflects in his creations.
After studying at Central Saint Martins in London and Domus Academy in Milan, Andrew Gn came to Paris to work as assistant to M. Emmanuel Ungaro. He then started his own house which has over the years grown into a full-fledged international label, available in the best stores around the world.
Since his early childhood Andrew Gn was immersed in the world of Art and Antiques. He is a collector at heart. This passion translates into many cultural and historical inspirations for his fashion designs. Chinese porcelain, Braque, Utopian Robots, there is no impossible dialog. East meets West, Klimt meets Tribal art and Baroque meets Sci-Fi. His collections are a journey through time and space, encapsulated in the most luxurious and exclusive materials.
Andrew Gn’s new Salon in Le Marais is decorated with an eclectic collection of 19th and early 20th century objects gathered by Andrew over the years.
The floor-to-ceiling lacquered paneling, inspired by Whistler’s Peacock Room, was custom-made by a famous French lacquer atelier. A sumptuous mural painting by the Iranian artist Roshanak Varasteh depicts the heavenly pomegranate tree with prancing gazelles and mythical birds. Two imposing Venetian glass chandeliers which formerly hung in a palazzo of the Doria Pamphili family, add their splendor to the main hall.
Another room is entirely covered with a black and gold silk, reminiscent of William Morris and woven especially for our house. In that precious and intimate boudoir, one could lounge in Egyptomania armchairs and discover Andrew's intricately detailed creations.
