The Andrea Crews Spring Summer 2015 show was all about finding a stabilized contrast between fine arts and the world of fashion. As we are used to from the label, the collection was very unisex and oversized.
Andrea Crews is the alter-ego of Maroussia Rebecq, the founder and creative director of the brand.
The season’s eco-friendly collection was inspired by big painters like Van Gogh and Matisse. The loud prints used in the collection were absolutely the stunners of the show. To tone them down, softer elements were added to the collection; for example, great black cutout items handcrafted in their wonder-shop and atelier at Rue de Turenne, along with some pastel looks.
It was all about merging components. Silhouettes by turning T-shirts into dresses and fabrics by mixing silks with jersey and elastic.
To keep the show well balanced, Rebecq went for strong masculine models to wear the womenswear inspired silhouettes.
If there is any designer on the Paris schedule who brings art and fashion together, it must be Rebecq. However, the Andrea Crews collections are most definitely not for everybody.
Excellent though for those who are not afraid to wear striking items and have a beating heart for handcrafted work.
