Givenchy Fall/Winter 2016

by Paige Reddinger

The genius of Riccardo Tisci is that he is able to please the Millennials with familiar imagery on pieces that are still relatively accessible (i.e. Bambi, a fang-baring dog, and religious iconography on sweatshirts and slip-on sneakers), while attracting the more sophisticated set with pockets deep enough to buy a full look. It’s not easy being cool, commercial, relevant, and luxurious. This season’s collection was permeated by an Egyptian motif, which will surely become pervasive once it makes its way off the runway and onto T-shirts, sneakers, backpacks, wallets, and more.

But for those that are beyond the Givenchy starter kit, may we suggest the black bomber jackets with multiple zippers and gold circle pulls? For those who can really make an investment, there was some absolutely divine outerwear in cheetah prints mixed with snakeskin and floor-sweeping fur-trimmed robes that screamed luxury. For customers who prefer subtlety, those Givenchy LBDs with fur-accented sleeves are must-haves. Plus, we imagine there are still clients who will appreciate the nod to classic Givenchy.
