De­fence against the dark

Givenchy

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style File -

If Keats, Shel­ley or By­ron were alive to­day, they’d be wear­ing Givenchy. The dark and ro­man­tic pieces ( al­beit crossed with a bas­ket­ball court) were a gothic ver­sion of the geo­met­ric and tribal prints seen in the spring/ sum­mer 2014 col­lec­tion. Long vel­vet jack­ets and dark suits were worn with white shirts and black net­ting pulled across the face for an emo twist. The la­bel’s V- cut trousers were seen in bleached denim, teamed with col­lar­stand shirts fin­ished with red metal­lic. In a sportier vein, jack­ets, sweat­shirts, trousers and pock­ets were dec­o­rated with the lines of a bas­ket­ball court, from lines down the chest to curved half- cir­cles across the shoul­ders. Fab­ric was var­ied: leather, neo­prene and denim were used in com­bi­na­tion, and grey flan­nel was no­table. Out­er­wear was as sculpted as the mod­els’ cheek­bones.
