Riccardo Tisci sends out a girl who mixes "Victorian and Chola" influences at Givenchy, seductive once again...

In a warehouse decor where jukeboxes, neon lights, boom boxes and old tv sets from the 1960s are piled up on top of each another, Riccardo Tisci puts the focus on the streetwear attitude, which he loves. The collection is super sophisticated.

The hair is like that of a Spanish dancer, slicked down with heart-shaped clips like tattoos, and framing the face covered in piercings. The dresses are all belted, and several clever cut-outs reveal the daring transparent pieces. The colors which complement all the black are warm and end up in peacock feather prints. Smocks and frills soften the rigor of the perfect cuts.

And the Italian nonchalance of the designer reveals itself with attitude, seen for instance in a bare shoulder emerging from a chiffon blouse. The finishes and details are superbly worked and confirm his talent for tailoring.

Tisci describes the collection as a combination of "Victorian and Chola" girl. The Victorian style, recognizable since the beginnings of Givenchy, combined with Latin touches.
