The house of Givenchy unveiled a collection that added to the excitement of an already huge week in the fashion industry.
Each model appeared as though they were the angels of the Japanese Samurai’s. This exquisite display of white, floor length garments truly gave off a heavenly glow. The collection had a sense of unity and seamless transition; this coupled with the silhouette of each garment gave the collection a glorious flow. Side note: Talk about fierce, the helmets added a fantastic edge to the stage with the juxtaposition between a rough masculine element to the feminine flowing gowns. Visually the glossy finish added a futuristic sense of something cold and hard to what was otherwise a dainty, and whimsical collection.
The bursts of embroidered colors were amazing (I don’t think a single stitch was the same). Whether it was yellow fading into a feathered bottom of a gown or orange outlining the delicate shapes of the back, the brilliance of the construction was always present. Minute couture stitching was very prominent on all pieces in the fashion collection. The mix of geometric shapes with soft flowing patterns made this fashion presentation unforgettable, not to mention the way the white opaque fabric transformed into transparent edges almost like wings made the gowns look as though they were ready to take flight.
Last but certainly not least, you have to appreciate the draping and layering (beautifully executed). Other features that made each garment unique were the silhouettes of the very tailored mid-sections and seemingly stiff shoulders. It is rare to see a collection that can be broken down into individual pieces and have as much of an impact as the complete fashion collection did in this presentation.
The appeal of the selectively exposed feminine form such as the back, legs, and yes, even breasts makes this collection both exquisitely regal and provocative. Though not for the weak or faint of heart, it is for those who are protectors, fighters, and above all strong women.
