Creative Director, Riccardo Tisci, takes us back to his roots with the release of his latest editorial for Givenchy.
Oozing Italian inspiration, the spring/summer 2013 Givenchy collection takes a step back from the relaxed, sportswear style that we’re used to from the label, and instead adopts an interesting use of masculine tailoring and elongated shapes.
Loose fitting shirts (reminiscent of priest-like robes) and box-cut styles add a contemporary edge to Tisci’s designs, whilst the use of the famous ‘Madonna and Child’ graphic creates a dark and romantic tone throughout.
These lightweight daytime pieces, no matter how eerie, are ideal for the much anticipated warm spring/summer climates. The sheer vests are available in a range of colours and styles and are undoubtedly the focal point of the collection.
While the lookbook projects a theme of saint versus sinner, we are reminded of Tisci’s ethos of creating quality clothing through his selection of delicate fabrics. From duchesse satin to silk chiffon, Riccardo Tisci combines comfort with elegance this season and provides us with a collection that is not to be missed.
