Ricardo Tisci’s latest offering, Givenchy Resort, opened with a cropped, belled jacket and short skirt—both in crisp white, both bordered with Gumball-size pearls—which reinforced the polished vibe at the heart of the house, although Riccardo Tisci’s neo-baroque flair is unmistakably there. This was one of three themes that Tisci made use of for his Givenchy Resort collection, and while it may not be as bold as the graphic ancient Egyptian falcon motif reprised from Fall, it suggests he’s found new interest in the old Givenchy codes.
Classic gives way to what Tisci conceived as the “skinhead romantic” grouping, where the curtain of tulle reappears in ghostly pink paired with a bustier dress supported by thick buckles and a day-to-night bomber. Thanks to laced wedge boots or studded leather triangle bras intended to be exposed, the overall attitude ended up tough, seductive, and tailor-made for his empowered and extroverted tribe.
The “urban” notion through out the collection benefited from mixing logo T-shirts with color-blocked leather motorcycle pants and sport jersey dresses with jackets trimmed in dynamic scrollwork.
Ricardo Tisci’s Givenchy Resort collection was primarily shot on the streets of Naples, providing backdrops that spanned from refined to rundown, a denim range, also included in this seasons resort collection was shot in studio and rounded out the season.
