Givenchy – Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Paris
A black and romantic atmosphere at Givenchy… The decoration in the Halle Freyssinet consists of an old dismembered Cessna which hangs suspended in the centre. Heavy, repetitive music makes for a peculiar atmosphere and leads you to think that something dramatic has just happened. However its more about warriors than survivors, walking confidently toward and then around the plane with black hair covers and dressed in short black costumes with contrasting white collared shirts. Then prints that give an all-over look of smudges or tiny flowers come hurtling onto the scene, along with a large belt that encircle these silhouettes that look like an open-sided skirts. Stuck to the shirts, the overcoats, and the back of a jacket are bands that look like stickers, giving the clothes a graphic modernity. Transparent jumpers help to lighten the silhouettes and are worn on top of the outfits, and the prints become bigger and bigger over the course of the collection until they are covered entirely with beads.
