#CollectionCrush: Givenchy Resort 2017

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

Erm, so like... Can we just discuss, and I mean JUST discuss Givenchy's 2017 resort collection?! Riccardo Tisci didn't even put on a fashion show to reveal these looks, but the look-book that launched a couple of weeks back was more than enough. Completely stripped back and away from the lights and sass of the catwalk, Tisci really let the clothes do the talking. From Chanel Resort in Cuba to Louis Vuitton Resort taking place in Rio - nothing caught my attention OR got my blood pressure rising like Givenchy's Resort look-book. 

This most definitely took me by surprise, as I wasn't the biggest fan of the Egyptian motif that dominated Givenchy's Fall Ready-to-Wear 2016 collection showcased in Paris back in March. As a lover of clothes that embody both the softness of femininity and the sharpness of masculinity - this collection really pulled on my heart strings. 

This was probably one of my favourite looks because of the simplicity and practicality. Most looks you see on the catwalk are way too flamboyant to wear in everyday life. But this look right here *inserts praise emoji*... ultimate sports luxe. 

Yes, This look is EVERYTHING and yes, I will rob a bank to get my hands on this (LOL, don't worry I'm joking). The large sequined dress in blush pink feels fun, elegant and girly... but then the emerald green structured cropped jacket asserts a sense of power. The way this jacket sits and the way the zip is fitted is just... to. die. for.

Here we see a black version of the cropped jacket, which again slays. Usually a zip is something that only acts as a function, but Tisci uses them to embellish... and well,  it just works.

The fact that I like this look is pretty obvious... It's khaki (and yeah, I love me some khaki). I just love how Tisci clashes looks. The dress, the bag and the shoes are classic and something a very feminine woman would wear to work. However, the graphic bomber jacket and the oversized sunglasses add an element of "Yes, I'm a boss chick" cool.

How Tisci contrasts classic notions of femininity and masculine sharpness through style has definitely inspired me to try out some of these looks. Literally can't wait to see what Givenchy has in store for their women's SS17 collection. Bring on Paris Fashion Week!
