Sensual, elegant and peppered with surprises, Riccardo Tisci unveiled a balance between African and Japanese cultures for Givenchy SS14.
Taking a brave step away from prints for the incoming spring/summer, new territories are explored with a bold juxtaposition of simple jersey and intricate embroidery. Key references stem from the refined and elegant Japanese culture: kimono sleeves and fluidity in silhouettes reign and are matched with the natural draping from African culture. Geometry adds a tough element to the art of shaping jersey into beautiful drapery.
Our favourites at Aesthetic House? Silk Georgette imbued with delicately animated prints and feathers applied to leather for a subtle refresh of the textures we so adore for AW13.
Givenchy SS14 is all about the fine line struck between sensuality and strength, moving the aesthetics of the Givenchy woman on with the smaller details littered with patent leather, studs and silk, oh and sequinned glittered face masks. Oh the masks…!
