Why You NEED The New Givenchy Collection...

Sunday, July 09, 2017

Sheer subtlety and bright boldness is what sums up the Givenchy Resort 2018 collection. Up until the appointment of Clare Waight Keller last month, Givenchy had no Creative Director after the departure of Riccardo Tisci. As a result, the Givenchy design team came together, worked on and showcased the Resort 2018 collection.
Taking sporty luxe to another level, the collection screams versatility which is shown through their use of organza pants, tailored coats and cotton overalls. Showcased against a modern architectural backdrop, the fashion house set the tone for the artistic direction for their future collections.

The colour coded collection is divided into three segments: white for quintessential tailoring, fuchsia for directional design and electric blue for urban and laid-back element.

For the white segment... prolonged silhouettes were positioned against a backdrop of stone, with clean cut white pleated trousers and tailored blazers, sheer layers of gauzy tulle and lace ensembles of silk jacquard. The styles ranged from white tailored collared trenches – to a white trouser suit adorned in Givenchy 18 logo in silver letters along the front.

Embraced by the modern mahogany interior, stands edgy ruffled hot pink silhouettes with bold statement earrings. Patchwork on asymmetrical skirts and straight bodices are made up of sheer, silk ruffles and pleats, whilst accessories consist of tartan stocking boots, a fuchsia hobo bag and skin-tight gloves.
The blue segment sees electric blue parka jackets, presented in front of housing projects on the outskirts of Rome. In this urban work-wear line up, we see soft cotton jumpsuits, sheer organza pants and a cape. Givenchy adds a flare of fun with the waist clinching buckled mini dress, which is paired with Perspex blocked boots.
With its influential colour palette and wide range of styles, Givenchy Resort 2018’s sleek and chic collection was stunning. Setting the tone for Clare Waight Keller, I can’t wait to see the new Creative Director’s vision for the brand come Autumn/Winter.
