Spring/Summer 2016 Ready-to-Wear : Givenchy

SOOOOOO, it's here! Fashion month has officially begun, starting in the traditional city of New York! I love New York fashion week, and I am so so excited to see what it has to offer, in addition to the other fashion capitals.

Being straight to the point - I absolutely loved this collection by Riccardo Tisci. If you follow my blog regularly, or follow me on social media, you'll most likely know that I am in love with Givenchy. I love the edginess it brings to the fashion industry, and it's always so diverse, but still incredibly luxurious. This collection was relatively "toned down" compared to the AW15 collection that graced the catwalk last season. There was less fake piercings and quirky headwear, but more subtleness and elegance - but of course, there were hints of the iconic givenchy diversity. But could we expect anything less?

This collection was something I wasn't expecting though, it has probably been one of my favourite collections to date. The "pyjama" theme really had me transfixed, I absolutely loved it. For me, this was all about the fabrics and materials. The silk looks beautiful and it was if I just wanted to touch it - making a woman feel a million dollars no less. The collection was very monochrome heavy, with beautfiful shades of crisp white, soft ivory contrasted with the harsh black. We saw delicate ivory slip dresses, camisoles with laced edges teamed with tailored black trousers and tuxedos. The highlight for me was Joan Smalls walking in that absolutely captivating black gown, watching onlookers gasp in awe. It was absolutely stunning. I also loved the shoes Riccardo has designed. the "lace up" laced shoes in different colours. Beautiful, but as Candice Swanepoel had demonstrated that evening, extremely hard to walk in. But hey, who said fashion was comfort?
