ABOUT GIVENCHY

SPRING/SUMMER 2014 WOMEN'S COLLECTION:

DRAWING INSPIRATION FROM A CRASH BETWEEN AFRICAN AND JAPANESE CULTURES MIXED WITH HAUTE COUTURE TECHNIQUES, RICCARDO TISCI REVEALS A COLLECTION IMBUED WITH SENSUALITY AND URBAN ELEGANCE. MOVING AWAY FROM PRINTS, HE EXPLORES A NEW TERRITORY USING THE SIMPLICITY OF JERSEY AND INTRICATE EMBROIDERIES IN AN EXPLOSION OF EARTH COLORS.

THE INFLUENCE OF THE REFINED AND ELEGANT JAPANESE CULTURE GIVES WAY TO KIMONO SLEEVES AND FLUIDITY IN THE WAY THE SILHOUETTE IS ENVISIONED THIS SEASON. MATCHED WITH THE NATURAL DRAPING OF AFRICAN WOMEN AND THE EXTENSIVE USE OF SILK JERSEY, SHAPES SHOW DYNAMISM AND FEMININITY. THE MASSAÏ LOOK TOGETHER WITH THE CRAFT OF HAUTE COUTURE PLEATING MERGE TO CREATE ELABORATE AND GRACEFUL DRESSES AND TOPS. THE GEOMETRY OF HARNESS-LIKE TOPS WORN UNDER LIQUID JERSEY DRESSES ADDS A TOUGH ELEMENT TO THE ART OF DRAPING.

A DELICATE FEELING ANIMATES PAILLETTES EMBROIDERED ON SILK GEORGETTE, THIN LEATHER STRIPS SEWN TOGETHER TO FORM A PLISSÉ, CONDOR FEATHERS APPLIQUÉD ON LEATHER AND SEQUINS SEWN TOGETHER IN A SNAKE-LIKE 3D EFFECT. THE MAKE-UP MASKS IN MULTI-COLOURED SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS ECHO THE TRIBAL MASKS EMBROIDERED ON PANELLED T-SHIRTS.

THE ATTITUDE IS ABOUT SENSUALITY, STRENGTH AND CONFIDENCE. THAT DEFINITION OF THE GIVENCHY WOMAN IS APPROACHED THIS SEASON WITH FLUID DRESSES, SUITS AND JUMPSUITS ALL WORN WITH FLAT SANDALS MADE OF TRANSPARENT PLEXI, NAPPA AND PATENT LEATHER WITH CRYSTAL STUDDED HEELS.

SPRING/SUMMER 2014 MEN'S COLLECTION :

FOR THE GIVENCHY SPRING/SUMMER 2014 COLLECTION, RICCARDO TISCI EMBARKS UPON A JOURNEY FROM AMERICA TO AFRICA. FROM L.A. SKATERS, NERDS OBSESSED WITH VINTAGE 1970S COMPUTERS, ELECTRONICS' LOUDSPEAKERS TO AFRICAN ETHNOGRAPHY, THE SHOW IS ABOUT MIXING COLORS, SHAPES, DESIGNS AND PRINTS. COLORFUL SILHOUETTES EXUDE A SPORTY ELEGANCE AND A FREEDOM OF LAYERING WITH CONTRASTING ELEMENTS.

BRIGHT AND LIGHT COMPUTERIZED MOTIFS GIVE A DYNAMIC AND GRAPHIC TAKE TO PRINTS. THEY ARE MERGED WITH AN INFLUENCE OF MASAÏ AND ZULU BOLD ICONOGRAPHY, LAYERED TOGETHER WITH THE ENERGY OF SPORTSWEAR. EVERY KIND OF STRIPE ANIMATES THE GARMENTS WHILE TARGETS AND GO-CARTS ADD FURTHER VISUAL EFFECTS. PLACED OR WORKED IN PATCHWORK, EACH PRINT REVEALS ELABORATE COMPOSITIONS. INTRICATE FRONTED SHIRTS AND ATHLETIC T-SHIRTS WITH CUT-OUTS ALSO INJECT GEOMETRY.

OVERSIZED SHIRTS, POLOS, PARKAS, PLEATED BERMUDAS AND LEGGINGS ALTERNATE WITH FITTED TAILORING. CLASSIC COTTON FABRICS SUCH AS POPLIN, JERSEY, GABARDINE AND PIQUÉ CONTRAST WITH THICK NYLON, SILK ORGANZA OR GEORGETTE, PRINTED LEATHER, SATIN AND NYLON KNITTED MESH. NEO-TUXEDO PANTS IN PLAIN OR PRINTED COTTON POPLIN ARE LAYERED WITH SILK GEORGETTE DEMONSTRATING MASTERFUL CONSTRUCTION.
