What a spectacular way to start the show with that giant black hat that barely allowed us see the face of the model. Clare Waight Keller brought Givenchy’s 70’s silhouettes back to the runway. She inspired in Nouvelle Vague movie posters and artists such as Helena Almaida and Ketty La Rocca, and also from the archival imagery of Hubert de Givenchy’s midcentury collections.
Everything was made in a monochromatic color palette with touches of red, brown and gold. Asymmetrical dresses, shoulder pads, exaggerated volumes and pronounced necklines. The silhouettes were mostly minimal and the pieces englobe an amazing tailoring work that make women’s body look strong and powerfull.
I loved the combination of patterns and prints composed of motifs in many ways, including dots, checks, stripes, among others and the way they mixed them is very astute.
The first pieces shown were very elegant but in a more casual way, then, in the end, night gowns full of feathers and others with fringes, began to come out. It’s a completely feminine collection with a high level of details.
For my look I wore an animal print fur jacket with leather shorts and black heels, I added red gloves and net tights. I wore free hair and a very natural makeup with nude lips.
