Givenchy Resort 2017: Riccardo Tisic Presents his Resort 2017 Collection in Naples, Italy.
Givenchy took to the coastal city of Naples, Italy as the backdrop to the season’s 2017 Resort Collection. The collection at first glance was energetic, as if you could visually see the loud volume through the garments. Riccardo Tisci told WWD that the collection leans “towards the dark but with the romanticism as well.”
While the collection appeared new and modern, there was also this notion of returning to the old Givenchy codes that Riccardo Tisci has been building. In his latest collection he showed newness found in the more antique and classic GivenchyÂ elements. It was not only old merging with new that Tisci accomplished, but in addition, this collection merged two different generational types of women as well. Givenchy’s Resort 2017 collection designs spoke to elegance and urban youth simultaneously. The backdrop of the city of Naples alluded to this coexistence as rundown, gritty streets peaked through the photo’s borders, as well as more refined scenes. In returning to the tried and trued Givenchy aesthetics, Tisci revealed identity is key and the strong motive that consumers inhabit to buy something recognizable.
The collection appeared to be somewhat techno inspired in its youthful heavy, bold colors and strong blocking. Geometric printed mini skirts and color blocked moto pants were featured in the lineup. Logo t-shirts also made a strong presence in the collection. In contrast, bustier dresses in whisperings of pink were constructed of tulle. Pearls traced the untraditional handkerchief hemlines of garments. The collection appeared to have no boundaries separating daywear from eveningwear revealing the transitional ease of the garments.
Concluding the collection was a series of studio shots representing the denim line featuring rising model Bella Hadid. The collection was strong in delivery and reception. Tisci’s homage to the Italian city of Naples and continued style innovation eludes that there’s much more to come.
