Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Looks from Menswear Runway Show

Fashion

Givenchy is slowly getting us used to its It-squad of supermodels that strives to change the way we treat fashion (like we did in the Nineties), and the latest Givenchy Couture fall 2016 collection’s runaway show is here to prove it once again. The show reminded us also of another trend that could become a common practice in the near future: showcasing men’s and womenswear line-ups together.

Givenchy Couture Fall 2016 Collection

Riccardo Tisci unveiled both his Givenchy spring 2017 menswear and the Givenchy Couture fall 2016 womenswear collections together in Paris, and all the looks showcased perfectly recalled the iconic, edgy approach the Italian designer loves to take when it comes to haute couture.

As for the models, who had the chance to be the first to wear Tisci’s couture creations, Kendall Jenner, Mariacarla Boscono, Irina Shayk and Bella Hadid were asked to join the catwalk along with Lea T, Joan Smalls, Natalia Vodianova and Yasmin Wijnaldum. Powerful and iconic, the squad features both longtime catwalk habitué Shayk and newly acclaimed models, such as Gigi Hadid’s sister Bella, whose first ever runaway experience was Chanel’s couture show back in January.

Tisci also tapped transgender model Lea T to walk for his show, who, besides being one of the most iconic and beloved models of the moment, reminds us about Tisci’s commitment in making the industry a more inclusive and accepting environment indeed.

As for the looks we spotted at the show, the overall theme was all about the Twenties and Thirties, with looks that combined gender-bender patterns with evening outfits that channeled pure femininity and elegance. All of the looks created an intriguing contrast with the men’s collection, the warrior-like ensembles and overall black and military green color palette of which gave the whole show a sort of street-wear and slightly futuristic allure that was a pure pleasure to watch.

Although greatly varying in style, all of the aforementioned models wore one thing in common: ladylike drop earrings with gem embellishments. Although small details, these accessories enhanced the models’ facial features, just like the side-parted, super-sleek hairstyles with an edgy wet effect.

Jenner’s look kind of recalled Kris Jenner’s Great Gatsby themed birthday party. Still, at Tisci’s runaway show Kendall was seen showing off a more ladylike dress with frilled details and a one-shoulder neckline that got revamped with a modern black pattern underneath. A more mannish design was instead Shayk’s choice, whose embellished coat was one of the collection’s key staples.

Sweetheart necklines, wrapped tops and quirky shirtdresses were some of the most noteworthy designs at the show, with ties keeping the attention high on the whole gender-bender theme.

We as women know how much money we are spending on make up as we can never have too many lipsticks and foundations. Knowing that the struggle is real, we all need that one particular go-to Vanity Bag wherever we go and Chanel might have solved our dilemma. Ladies, here is Chanel’s Coco Curve Vanity Case Bag which we treat as a prized possession.

We are loving smooth leather on this bag. Besides, we need a luxurious vanity case bag to hold our dearest collection of make-ups. It’s so handy that you can take it by the hand or if you feel like wearing it over your shoulder, you can do so with its chained strap.

The big CC logo in front is one eye catcher. We’ll never get tired of that logo that Chanel is known for. It is made up of calfskin, goatskin and gold metal.

Here are the details: style code A93463, measuring 5.5′ x 7.5′ x 3.1′ inches, priced at $3000 USD, €2900 euro, £2310 GBP.

See All the Womenswear Looks from Balmain’s Menswear Spring 2017 Show

Fashion

Presented on Saturday in Paris, Olivier Rousteing’s Balmain spring 2017 menswear show hit it big indeed, with It personalities in the fashion world rocking both the catwalk and the front row. As promised, Rousteing also showcased a jaw-dropping selection of the womenswear spring 2017 looks, with models Sasha Luss, Cindy Bruna, Alessandra Ambrosio, Doutzen Kroes and Joséphine Le Tutour strutting down the runway.

Balmain Spring 2017 Womenswear Collection

“The beauty of the girls has to be matched with the boy. There’s a very definite beauty with the girls. They’re all very different, and they’re from all over the world. It’s very democratic in that way. But there’s a beauty and a confidence and a sexiness about them. And we really wanted to match that with the boys;” Jess Hallett, Balmain’s London-based casting director told Vogue, giving us a glimpse of what designer Rousteign looks for in a runaway show.

And if the beauty of the girls had to match the style of the boys, music literally played a huge role in capturing the collection’s main theme too. A live orchestra performed some of Phil Collins’ and Seal’s biggest hits form the Eighties and Nineties.

Although being not purely/solely Eighties/Nineties-inspired in style, both the women’s and menswear line-ups featured characteristic details from those decades, such as sheer and denim appliqués, floor-length airy gowns and cut-outs on the shoulders.

Balmain Spring 2017 Womenswear Collection

The women’s looks were ultra colorful and never boring, which is something both the Eighties and the Nineties had in common although in different ways (while multi-colored rainbow patterns were a must in the Nineties, the Eighties focused more on multi-colored retro prints and bright color-blocking motifs).

For this reason, the Balmain’s spring 2017 women’s looks feature both vibrant solid-colored ensembles, such as the shocking orange maxi dress, and mini dresses with sheer embellishments that got colored with a more modern, if not even sophisticated version of the tie-dye print. Nineties-inspired skimpy crop-tops got combined with sinuous high-waisted maxi skirts with side slits, the color-blocking orange and blue patterns of which are super covetable.

Like some of the men’s proposals, the womenswear line also focused on warrior-like, street-style outfits: an off-the-shoulder top combined with billowy khaki trousers and a wide belt cinched at the waist perfectly captured this style.

Asymmetrical gowns got paired with zig-zag-patterned kimono cardigans, denoting Olivier Rousteing’s passion and forethought on proportion. Besides matching the women’s and men’s proposals with one another, the designer put a great emphasis on the importance of balancing the figures either with embellishments, such belts, or geometric colored patterns on the fabrics, never missing the chance of giving an almost theatrical dynamicity to the entire collection.

Lastly, aside from a very few total black and total white staples, all of the women’s (and some of the men’s too) proposals featured tassel adornments either on the waists or necklines, which draw our attention to the astounding accessory line he created for spring.

GIVENCHY FALL 2016 SEASONAL BAG COLLECTION FEATURING NEW GIVENCHY PARIS SHOULDER BAG

Other Brands

Givenchy-Fall-2016-Classic-Bag-Collection-Featuring-Metal-Crosses-Nightingale-Bag-35

It’s as if two or more bags isn’t enough, Givenchy’s Fall 2016 Seasonal Bag Collection will then catch your attention before you even manage to say No. Let’s talk about these two particular bags that has caught our attention.

First off is this lovely Small Cross Body Bag with ‘Givenchy Paris’ debossed on its fine and smooth black leather. We like the simplicity and exquisiteness of this shoulder bag. Its plain design isn’t washed out entirely because the debossed logo made it a complete standout. That’s what we want in a bag: simple yet has a signature statement.

Another one that is on our list is this Chain Wallet in Smooth Leather with Metal Crosses. Yes, definitely a style stunner, this chain wallet is perfect for those sweet yet swift errands that you have to attend to during the weekends since you need not be stashing a lot of things inside your wallet on chain bag. And oh, this also goes pretty great for that certified punk look especially when you go to metal/rock concerts with your equally cool girlfriends.
