Givenchy Mens Spring Summer 2017 Mens Collection: Riccardo Tisci Presents a SS17 Collection Filled with Bold Prints and Street Style Vibes.
Riccardo Tisci showed the Givenchy men’s SS17 collection in the courtyard of Paris’s Lycee Janson de Sailly. The collection presented in the 16th arrondissement consisted of primarily menswear accompanied by Givenchy’s Haute Couture Collection. The show invitation featured a Guy Bourdin image with SS17 spray-painted across the invite in bubblegum pink. Guests were offeredÂ lush views of the courtyardÂ alongsideÂ the industrial aesthetic of the multi-level runway.
The SS17 collection emphasized on attention to detail. Streetwear looks included optic patterns, prints influenced by American currency, pyramid imagery and checkerboard motifs. Muted, olive green was a prominent color throughout the collection, sometimes accentuated with pigmented red accents. Designed as accents on the trims of shirts and sneakers were not only such red color blocking, but also black and white checkerboard piping. Metallic detailing carried way throughout the collection, commonly seen on suiting. Suiting pockets also featured white color blocked detailing functioned as an almost peek-a-boo aesthetic.
Tisci has a fondness of layering interesting prints, and the brand’s latest collection introduced a lineup of new motifs. Currency prints were featured alongside and overlapping subtle camouflage prints. Checkered prints appeared in both black and white and olive toned variations. Beehive figures printed in neutrals appeared on styles as well as the notorious triangle symbol with an eye set in the middle. As a result of such designs and incorporated prints, reviews and reactions of the collection were conspiring to Illuminati conspiracies.
As the Givenchy models descended the stairs to the catwalk, silhouettes varied from slimly tailored to oversized and elongated. In playing with both silhouettes, Tisci walked several tailored suit jackets with dramatic, oversized, cargo-like pockets. The peek-a-boo detailing continued in color blocked form. Pinstripes dressed suits, while wave prints were featured on undershirts. Sheen and metallic elements were functioned throughout the fabric design of garments, as were patent leather elements. Tisci used mirroring discs as a border to trim several garments.
The couture collection dressed models such as Joan Smalls and Bella Hadid. The collection walked couture dresses designed with edge, some featuring checkerboard prints in muted green, others including a reworked camo print. There was strong textural experimentation in the Givenchy couture collection, with the inclusion of pleats and gauze-like elements and effects.
