The fall/winter collection constituted a cool and confident blend of elegance and glam rock fashion. Tisci’s apparent fascination with Gothic touches and space-age minimalism has drawn new attention to the Givenchy brand.There were retro variations as well on creations like racing boots and riding jackets.
In addition to black jodhpurs and sable brown shaped silhouettes, there was a sense of danger at all times with chokingly tight neck scarves, loud, troubling music, and even one skin tight leather piece based on a sporting polo that looked like bondage gear. The collection was also accessorised with oversized earrings like horse-blinders to give the rock chic look.
“My way of showing is very melancholic… I love romanticism and sensuality,” Tisci said about his collections.
On the Haute Couture front, there were bull nose and rock chic twists that look divine for 2013. Swirling paisley prints of red, blue and gold were juxtaposed against black and white geometric blocks at Givenchy, for a restructured, modernist approach to scarf patterns. Razor cuts up to the shoulders made for a sharp tailored approach to a gypsy inspired, belted evening dress.
All we need in an appearance from Blondie, Kate Bush and Fleetwood Mac and we shall all be rocking this 2013.
