I wasn’t aware the fact how much I like resort collections until now, so on the basis of the ‘better later than never’ idea, I chose to introduce you one of my all-time-favourites. Before doing so, let’s claim what does the resort collection expression stand for; I would say resort collections are mixing a bit of the previous fall/winter silhouettes with the upcoming spring/summer collections. It’s a bit of a bridge between the seasons so to say. Even though the Givenchy Resort 2013 collection is not brand new, it had a great impression on me. The collection is like a geometric puzzle that matches the geometric blocks of black and white with swirling paisleys in shades of red, blue, and gold by recalling a contemporary gipsy flair. Riccardo Tisci, the Creative Director of the french fashion house exclusively balanced the contrast of romantic and sharp, while captured the mid-season’s slightly bohemian from-leaves-to-blossoms spirit. Givenchy presented an almost routine-like visual drama that merged the brand’s signature sharp tailoring, mismatched combinations and strong accessories that melted together with the garments.
