Givenchy Spring 2014 PFW
Gorgeous draping can be very alluring. Givenchy’s Spring 2014 collection achieves this, and then some. Designer Riccardo Tisci is a self-professed lover of draping extraordinaire, Madame Grès. He’s also greatly inspired by traditional Japanese kimonos and fabrics used in African and Indian clothing for this set. A tribal sense is felt all over, including the magnificent glued crystal faces on the models. Everything is a fierce tour de force.
The ethnic dress is shown most through the colors. Bright orange, brown and black all made appearances early, setting the earthy mood. As the models walked in a circle around ruined cars, it was like they were doing a tribal dance to fashion’s roots. The cuts are really beautiful, as things seems weightless and airy. A few prints are very African-centric, with pretty wrap-around stripes that are striking.
The Japanese influence comes alive in kimono-like jackets over tailored trousers. An underlying sophistication resonates throughout gracefully…so very elegant. check out video to get the vibe.

As for evening dresses, the detailed pleating is at its absolute finest. Dazzling with sparkles, several shine brightly in red and gold, a few in pretty rainbow hues. The designer himself made sure each of the women wore flat shoes, showing that sexy doesn’t always mean 6 inch heels. Much kudos. fdmLOVES GIVENCHY Spring 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Allison Ripa.
