Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Looks from Menswear Runway Show

Givenchy is slowly getting us used to its It-squad of supermodels that strives to change the way we treat fashion (like we did in the Nineties), and the latest Givenchy Couture fall 2016 collection’s runway show is here to prove it once again. The show reminded us also of another trend that could become a common practice in the near future: showcasing men’s and womenswear line-ups together.

Riccardo Tisci unveiled both his Givenchy spring 2017 menswear and the Givenchy Couture fall 2016 womenswear collections together in Paris, and all the looks showcased perfectly recalled the iconic, edgy approach the Italian designer loves to take when it comes to haute couture.

As for the models, who had the chance to be the first to wear Tisci’s couture creations, Kendall Jenner, Mariacarla Boscono, Irina Shayk and Bella Hadid were asked to join the catwalk along with Lea T, Joan Smalls, Natalia Vodianova and Yasmin Wijnaldum. Powerful and iconic, the squad features both longtime catwalk habitué Shayk and newly acclaimed models, such as Gigi Hadid’s sister Bella, whose first ever runway experience was Chanel’s couture show back in January.

Tisci also tapped transgender model Lea T to walk for his show, who, besides being one of the most iconic and beloved models of the moment, reminds us about Tisci’s commitment in making the industry a more inclusive and accepting environment indeed.

As for the looks we spotted at the show, the overall theme was all about the Twenties and Thirties, with looks that combined gender-bender patterns with evening outfits that channeled pure femininity and elegance. All of the looks created an intriguing contrast with the men’s collection, the warrior-like ensembles and overall black and military green color palette of which gave the whole show a sort of street-wear and slightly futuristic allure that was a pure pleasure to watch.

Although greatly varying in style, all of the aforementioned models wore one thing in common: ladylike drop earrings with gem embellishments. Although small details, these accessories enhanced the models’ facial features, just like the side-parted, super-sleek hairstyles with an edgy wet effect.

Jenner’s look kind of recalled Kris Jenner’s Great Gatsby themed birthday party. Still, at Tisci’s runway show Kendall was seen showing off a more ladylike dress with frilled details and a one-shoulder neckline that got revamped with a modern black pattern underneath. A more mannish design was instead Shayk’s choice, whose embellished coat was one of the collection’s key staples.

Sweetheart necklines, wrapped tops and quirky shirtdresses were some of the most noteworthy designs at the show, with ties keeping the attention high on the whole gender-bender theme.
