Trippy. Hypergrafic. Body Conscious. This is how Riccardo Tisci sees next Summer at Givenchy. The designer has decided to propel the LVMH owned maison into a new age straight out of Burning Man, the experimental festival which takes places in Nevada, in Black Rock City. Rock was the music. Rock like stones, such as agate which was an obsession at the beginning of the show, transformed into shimmering prints on dresses, in necklaces worn over tight, utilitarian tailoring. Zip pockets, a leitmotiv, a perfect match with what we saw at the men’s show in June. Earthen tones recall Tisci’s tribal fascination. Trousers get wider, with a seventies feel, strong graphic and psychedelic prints using strips and circles distort the silhouette. These pieces were alternated with fringing that appeared to move with the desert winds, reiterated through graphic prints on shoulders. Layers of bandage dresses with lingerie edging and colored stones broke up the harshness of the rigid jackets which closed the show.
