Givenchy's ready-to-wear collection is mature & sophisticated

Jun '08
Well-known luxury brand, Givenchy, has recently launched its women's Spring/Summer 2008 ready-to-wear collection.

While the collection designed by Riccardo Tisci has received mixed reviews, many observers feel that it is by far the best he has created for this fashion house.

The label which was launched in 1952 as a line of simple, light separates has astounded fashionistas across the globe. It is synonymous with luxury and modernism. The latest Spring/Summer 2008 collection is totally ready-to-wear.

It is beautiful though experimental, but demonstrates the real class of Riccardo Tisci, at a really young age. A serious designer with a powerful and unique vision, Tisci has taken luxury to its peak, with his elegant creations.

This season's looks will please even haute couture clients who had described his work as being too dark and 'gothic' and criticised him for altering the sacrosanct Givenchy house codes.

Since his appointment as creative director of the fashion house, it has been clear that Tisci's goal is to reinvigorate Givenchy and transform it into an edgier, more fashion-forward brand.

This alone is enough reason for him to gain supporters from the new generation. Tisci has refused to follow the trend of colourful clothes sent out by his peers. Instead he has opted for a more neutral scheme – black, white and beige with a dash of pale blue.

And rather than going crazy with prints, he took the polka dot and presented it in a way that is entirely his own. No traditional dots can be seen on these clothes, only big, bold ones playing with fashionable minds. The make-up is a little bizarre marked by black liquid cat eyes but the collection is full of envy-inducing pieces.
