Creative Director Riccardo Tisci shot the Givenchy Resort 2017 lookbook in Naples, Italy featuring exquisite historical buildings and abandoned streets.
Riccardo Tisci’s neo-baroque flair is unmistakably there as he’s finding new interest in the old Givenchy codes. See also the black double-faced jacket with a flattering basque and exposed seams; the matching zip tops and skirts in delicate tulle and lace; the contoured plissé soleil pieces; and even the latest Horizon handbag, which pivots toward a more mature sensibility without compromising on edge.
The line-up features soft feminine details, frills and pastel colors that meets street style with all its sharper lines, textural fabrics and darker colors giving a sense of ease to the entire collection.
With high doses of elegance represented by sophisticated mannish tailored suits combined with dramatic platform shoes and geometric embellishments, this theme gives the collection its edgiest, funkiest attitude. Layered lightweight dresses get a sporty, eased-up twist thanks to the cropped jackets, while psychedelic prints come combined with high platform shoes, kimono sleeves and mesh inserts.
Like the city of Naples, the collection’s contrasts are greatly accentuated by the lookbook’s setting, making the shots look like artistic photos. As Tisci described, the collection goes “towards the dark, but with the romanticism as well.”
Go behind the scenes and witness the detailed collection set in the streets of the Italian city.
