Graphic Glamour: Givenchy Spring 2018 Couture Collection

There is no question that Hubert de Givenchy ranks amongst the top style icons and sources of inspiration for many of the most stylish people today. However, in recent years, Givenchy is not a brand I have kept up with very much. Once they started putting Rottweilers on tee shirts and the reign of former creative director, Riccardo Tisci seemed to revolve around dressing the Kardashians in skin-tight bodices, I couldn’t identify with the look.

Fast forward to the Spring 2018 Couture Collection, the first with new creative director, Clare Waight Keller at the helm which Givenchy showed in Paris a few days ago and I am officially on the bandwagon. This collection is supremely chic. Though there is a bit of an infusion of color, the dominating color palette is composed on classic and graphic black and white. The collection showcases an exquisite level of tailoring. It is an embodiment of the dichotomy of a woman– a balance between soft and hard-lined; the difference between sensual and strong. I love the embellished gowns and jackets in this collection, but my favorite looks are those that are more streamlined and architectural. The jackets and coats are gorgeous and the simple empire-waist gowns are just divine!
