An Effortless Display of Ingenuity

When Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection came down the runway, the only extravagancy Riccardo Tisci delighted himself in was his known ability as a designer. There were no Rottweilers, no Madonnas, and certainly no obscure, hieroglyphically electronic patterns; but rather there was black, white and gypsophila all over. The collection forecasted new trends but reclaimed some of Tisci’s aesthetics when he was an emerging designer many moons ago: precise tailoring and a strict adherence to a monochromatic palette.
The completely wearable collection presented a range of diverse yet minimalistic options, from colorblocked polo shirts to Macintosh coats ranging between black, white and the baby’s breath pattern to a variety of pique lapel and double-breasted tailoring.
When Tisci finally came out in his trusty white Air Force 1's, it dawned upon us what we had just seen: an effortless display of ingenuity. By the time these hit the racks, they won’t be there for long.
