Following Naples, Riccardo Tisci has chosen Copenhagen to stage the Fall 17 pre-collection : timeless nature inspired designs in futuristic architecture settings.
Three iconic locations were selected to accompany each section of the Givenchy wardrobe.
The VEGA concert hall (conceived in 1956 by Vilhem Lauritzen) serves as backdrop for classic, elegant pieces. From tailored masculine styles with couture finishes, to lace evening dresses, camel hues and soft shades are enhanced with gold and yellow notes, referencing the warmth of Scandinavian woods.
In a more urban vein, Riccardo Tisci created a line that brings together the spirit of wisdom and rebellion.
The Givenchy Woman can mix a white shirt with a sporty jacket, a soccer jersey-style fur sweater, and a mini skirt. Sportswear and couture, the essence of Givenchy’s style, come together here at the Hotel Astoria.
Long, fitted-waist jackets over flared pants mark the collection’s fashion spirit, animated with contrasting colors or saturated prints (optical mandalas or florals). The superimposed effects highlight an idea of psychedelic nature that contrasts with the futuristic decor of a gas station designed by Arne Jacobsen.
The Givenchy denim wardrobe continues to grow. The stars feature pink on black, sparkle in metal on wide jumpsuits, or stand out on washed denim.
