Givenchy’s Resort Collection Plays With Peplum Looks + Animal Prints

givenchy-005-1366

Besides Givenchy’s Resort palette being dominated by green, one of my favorite colors, designer Riccardo Tisci also made sure to astound with surprising details on sexy silhouettes. There were plenty of peplum skirted looks with wide cutouts on the side of the knees. One of these looks really stood out from the rest, as it was paired with an athletic inspired baseball jacket of sorts, with oversized cape sleeves hinting at its hot pink inner lining.

As for texture, there were lace looks as well as denim. Take this look above, with the denim shirt above + its multicolored snap buttons paired with high waisted jeans, denim blue booties, then topped off with a jacket in a green leopard print lifted from Robert Mapplethorpe photographs. Speaking of prints, python also made its way into the collection in the form of booties, purses + an amazing tailored blazer (below), highlighting one of Tisci’s many talents.

The tailoring continued on with several pant suits + a white corseted top with off the should draped sleeves, paired with loose fitting trousers, almost making the model look like a marble roman column.

At times, Tisci’s tailoring managed to take a break, like with this white skirt above – notice the skirt’s unfinished hem.

For evening, most of the dresses left very little to the imagination, like the look above. Not only is this dress extremely fitted, like most in this category, it also bears a plunging neckline + a very high front slit.

Regarding accessories, the one most interesting standout was the block kitten metal stiletto heel hybrid shoe, seen below, which came in several colorways including beige with pink, dark olive with mint + black + white.
