Givenchy FW16 ready-to-wear collection is an official new beginning for Riccardo Tisci, the brand’s creative director. Tisci specifically chose Egypt to accentuate such a change. “Egypt for me is like the beginning of everything, for writers, for food, for everything. It’s been a long time that I’ve wanted to do this collection,” declared Tisci backstage.
Other than from Egyptian motifs, Tisci also mixed Tibetan Mandalas and contemporary animal prints in most of his Givenchy clothing collection, managing to balance the overwhelming wave of ancient references with a mystical philosophy and a more updated twist on fashion. Most of the Mandala-inspired clothes also exude some clear Seventies vibes, as they look like haute couture Woodstock-approved garments.
Tisci, who remained true to his signature gothic style, chose a darker color palette for this marvellous collection, alternating blacks, burgundies and browns with softer beige, fire red and even white touches. As for the collection’s colorful geometrical patterns, they may be surely bright and bold, but somehow inevitably contribute to accentuating the line-up’s overall dark side.
