Masculinity Meets Femininity (With A Pinch Of Carine): Givenchy Resort 2014

Following in the footsteps of Riccardo Tisci's spellbinding Autumn/Winter collection for Givenchy comes the house's Resort 2014 collection - a strong, sleek and sophisticated cousin collection fusing masculinity and femininty together in an effortless way to create the epitome of chic. Taking inspiration from Latin culture, Riccardo has clearly revisited his personal archive as he did with Autumn/Winter, showing Madonna printed tees, statement suiting, puffed-up peplums, fabulous florals and tremendous trenches. I personally love the flouncy and frilly denim dresses. Their flared shapes flatter and feel fresh whilst the peekaboo floral trenches equally excite. However, if I were to choose, my item from the collection would have to be the high-waisted, ruched and frilled pencil skirts. The way they sensuously hug the body is sublime, whilst the asymmetry flirts and flatters. I see similarity to Tom Ford's work at Yves Saint Laurent, where Carine Roitfeld (Givenchy's stylist and Tisci's muse) styled and inspired.
Are you a fan of Riccardo Tisci's Resort 2014 collection for Givenchy? Can you see a Carine influence? Please let me know in the comments below.
Thanks for reading,
