Givenchy fall winter 2015/2016 collection is inspired by Mexican girl gangs and Victoriana. “Chola Victorian,” the creative director, Riccardo Tisci declared backstage. “She’s the boss of the gang.”
Faces decorated with metal jewelry, the models walked down the runway with hair braided into rows on the back and curls around their temples, looking beautiful and fierce, “aggressive aesthetics” as cited in the program notes.
The boots on the runway is streamline clean designed featuring second-skin upper made of stretchy leather and fabric. Round chunky heels, decorated with gems, stacked, painted or velvet-covered, slightly off set at the back, provide structure for the sturdy upper whilst creating a powerful silhouette.
As a band famously associated with Audrey Hepburn, Riccardo Tisci is not interested in classic beauty but well-known for dark and gothic theme instilled into his designs. The culture clash in Givenchy new collection wowed the fashion crowd, as Kanye West proclaimed it “the best f–king show!”, while some critics found it’s offensive to Latin American community. It takes courage to deal with challenging issues in a creative context and we applaud Riccardo Tisci for it.
