GIVENCHY BY RICCARDO TISCI Spring 2017 Pre collection
This season, the womenswear collection explores three complementary wardrobes.The «skinhead romantic» as the new proposal. Inspired by the 90’s underground music scene, Riccardo Tisci imagined some of these looks with micro pleated tulle worn with maxi Givenchy star print white socks and big lace up boots.
The iconic Givenchy woman, channeling the House codes (such as black and white, tied blouses and straight skirts). This layered wardrobe references most of Givenchy’s classic aesthetics. The urban woman, a laboratory for new volumes and shapes, creating silhouettes halfway between Street and Couture.
The menswear collection is built around the same three worlds, playing with their different elements: Tone on tone incrustations on coats, bomber jackets, sweaters and tracksuit pants. The urban side of the collection can be found in oversized parkas and workwear jackets, or tracksuit nylon looks with large signature Givenchy bands.
The suits, jackets and shirts (navy or black) with red band accents underline the constructed strictness of the classic man as interpreted by Riccardo Tisci. Both men’s and women’s collections find inspiration in a reworked version of the egyptian print presented during the House’s latest womenswear show.
For Women’s Denim, the color palette is concise : black, white and baby blue. A new boyfriend’s cut is styled with short jackets, with cut out effects, 3D crystals embroidery or washed out signature stars.
With striped jersey incrustations, the Men’s denim offer is like an American college campus tour, with holes that create new textures and dimensions.
