When I first saw this collection my jaw dropped. Nicole Phelps was right in saying that pre-fall used to be a collection of basics, but not anymore. It’s as if Riccardo Tisci has created another ready to wear for those of us who just can’t wait until February.
The collection was shot using three of his current favourite runway models – Lea T, Saskia de Brauw, and Izabel Goulart – and shot on an actual street. I was so sure this was a set.
The colour palette is exactly what I want to be wearing this winter, as well as bringing in the camel tones and reinventing them into beiges and dusky pinks.
The layering is genius; thigh high laced boots under a chiffon maxi skirt (something I feel I will definitely have to do myself), bomber jackets and parkas layered over expensive looking ball gowns, and exposing thighs through selective layering.
This could be my favourite Givenchy collection to date.
