“The collection is about celebrating femininity and the rock woman,” said Riccardo Tisci about his fall/winter collection for Givenchy. “I’ve been doing the kind of young and more street look for so long, and I wanted to experiment with this woman who is feeling more like a woman”. He mixed trouser suits with lots of sexy fur and fabulous girly dresses, buttoned up blouses and pleated skirts, but also Bauhaus inspired strips with sweet butterfly and floral prints. In short, it was very colourful, luxurious and sensual.
Tisci used his bright-colored stripes everywhere: on suits, dresses, skirts and jackets. He used them to add a bit of geometry and roughness to his soft silhouettes and romantic prints. He used a lot of fur and leather and combined these heavy lux fabrics with delicate and fluttery materials such as chiffon, silk and tulle. The final look included a small top embellished with three-dimensional crystals in rainbow colors.
The latest issue of British Harper’s Bazaar brings exciting editorial styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Karl Lagerfeld featuring the coolest pieces from spring/summer collections. She mixed pinks with reds and African turbans with Prada printed fur coats, but her outrageous combinations worked well.
The forthcoming season looks very colorful and flamboyant through Roitfeld’s eyes. There are a lot of bright colors, fabulous prints, delicate embellishments and adorable accessories. She picked the most fabulous clothes from Chanel, Prada, Givenchy, Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs, Celine, Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Christian Dior, JW Anderson, Lanvin, Altuzzara, Gucci and Giorgio Armani and chose Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Karolina Kurkova, Kate Gooding, Alewya Demmisse and Sabrina Loffreda to pose for the campaign.
Riccardo Tisci’s menswear collection for Givenchy fall/winter 2014/2015 is inspired by basketball which was his favorite sport when he was a child. He used basketball court lines as the main motif which appears on shirts, coats, jackets and trousers.
The collection is very sporty and casual with loose silhouettes, long jackets, wide trousers, sneakers and baseball caps. It is mostly monochromatic with occasional outbursts of color, especially on shirts and jackets. Models were wearing nets on their faces which a cool addition to the gangster styling. The collection has elements of the 1920-s aesthetics, including avant-garde art and the dress code of both street gangs and real gentlemen.
