Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 Menswear Collection

Laura Tolentino

There is no person out there that follows fashion and that does not know the Givenchy brand. Givenchy can be found in various sectors of the beauty/fashion industry, ranging from clothes to iconic perfumes for both men and women.

The 2015 Spring/Summer Givenchy Menswear collection is the work of renowned designer Riccardo Tisci who now turns 40. This is definitely an important anniversary in the life of a man and you can so easily end up seeing various great designers coming up with something really special. While we cannot say what the success of the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 collection will be like, we can say that we do see something that is quite bold, interesting and attractive.

What is interesting is that this collection is basically one that finds most of the inspiration in the roots that Tisci had when he first started out like churchy monochrome strictness that classic school uniform we all remember, sports influences at a lower level than what we saw in the last few years and a classic tailoring. Beefy models with skullcaps do have a weird appeal that is private in nature and that is definitely attractive for so many women.

Romance is now reintroduced in the menswear collection with gypsophila being apparent as a visual relief, giving access to a floral effect that is quite interesting. The floral effect that appeared engraved on a bomber jacket back was definitely a highlight of the show. Even so, past extravagances are not at all present and we are faced with a much more toned back collection. In fact, we can say that this is one collection that raises a lot of questions about where the designer will go in the future since so many possibilities are available. Normally, after such a toned back approach, we see something bold and full of characteristics that are bolder and more attractive.

The chosen flagship model for the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2015 Menswear collection is Tony Ward. He is really well-chosen and you will love how he fits with the overall theme of the collection. The ads are classic, mostly black and white based and we are faced with a really attractive print campaign, mostly studio shot but also with nature decorations.
