The fashion house Givenchy showed their first Resort 2018 Collection since the departure of Riccardo Tisci and the announcement of Clare Waight Keller as artistic director. Clare had only a few weeks to get used to her new role while the Givenchy design team was working hard on the latest collection.
Besides the new artistic director Givenchy recently opened a flagship on the Via del Babuino in the Italian Capital, which connects the popular Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo. The decision to show their Resort 2018 Collection in Rome was expected. The haute couture fashion house chose the Museum of Roman Civilization to present their men’s and women’s latest designs.
The entire collection featured structured monochromatic designs predominantly colored in white, fuchsia and royal blue. The marble colonnade of the Museum perfectly complimented the all-white classic tailored creations. Judging by the designs it’s safe to say that the sheer trend that has been popular lately has no intention to disappear anytime soon.
The monochromatic designs painted in the hot fuchsia hue were the highlight of the collection. The fuchsia color in the Resort 2018 Collection was reserved for the directional designs. Givenchy gave us million ways to wear the season’s hottest color.
From wide-leg trousers and top coordinates to chic midi dresses and a mesmerizing gown, there is literally everything you could imagine in this hot pink color. Givenchy decided to give a chance to the men to rock this color as well. The camo-inspired fuchsia pattern shirt was a clear sign that the camo print is making its huge comeback.
Speaking of hot colors, the royal blue was also a star of the show. Opposite of the formal fuchsia-hued designs the royal blue represented the urban component of the collection.
There were many cool laid-back designs with a strong street style vibe. Fabrics varied from light sheer organza and technical fabrics to thick workwear fabrics.
The all-black outfits were exclusively made for the men. Givenchy added androgynous elements in some of the designs. The classic black formal trousers were enriched with a skirt attached to them.
The Resort 2018 Collection was a powerful transitional collection made to ensure the brand’s continuity. The collection is versatile in every possible way and is a great starting point for Waight Keller to form her vision for the brand.
