I was personally highly fascinated with the royal wedding and of course the designer that created the beautiful dress that Meghan Markle wore. Here I am talking about Clare Waight Keller who also happens to be the new creative designer for Givenchy.
This year the collection drew inspiration from Japanese culture, specifically «Givenchy Sport» line from the 80s created by Monsieur Hubert with Japanese aesthetics. I thought this collection was edgy, versatile and yet had a fierce aura of aristocracy.
The result is a captivating combination of sportswear and oriental pieces, characterized by graphic prints, V shapes, blouses with ruffles, gym pants and technical fabrics.
I loved the simplicity and yet complete sophistication of the black and white cocktail dress with a split right down the middle; one half black, one half white, down to the mismatched slouchy boots. This look was so refined and different, loved it!
Another outfit that I found cool was an aubergine coloured jumper paired with vinul pants, white shoes and a blue bag. Making vinyl look classy and sophisticated is an art that I feel like the designer has totally mastered.
Last but not least I can not not mention the very last dress in the collection the gorgeous pleated lamé gown that played on airbrushed color gradients. Really reminded me of the movie “The Great Gatsby”. I feel like this dress really spoke in regard to Clare Waight Keller’s western interpretation of the Japanese Kimono.
