Givenchy resort: digital delights

When one thinks resort wear, first thoughts tend to circle around whites, brights and pastels in lightweight or diaphanous fabrics mixed in with swim pieces and open toed footgear. You know, the sort of thing one might expect to wear on a fantasy trip to St. Tropez, the Hamptons or even Palm Springs. What one doesn’t expect, however, is a collection so sublime that it could easily be mistaken for a Magnum Opus, if one weren’t familiar with Riccardo Tisci, that is.

Well guess what, Givenchy does just that. With assemblage of pieces that are more dazzling than many designers’ autumn / winter collections, the resort 2012 collection is a stunningly cohesive blend of expertly cut digitally manipulated prints, slim cut solids and sculptural knits that are bold, au courant, and innovatively intricate. While it may be true that within the 6 years Riccardo Tisci has graced the helm of the Givenchy house, each collection has possessed a bit of a stunner factor, what makes this collection stand out is the brazen approach to a superlative amalgamation of couture and urban culture. This time, the Givenchy resort 2012 collection itself is the ultimate fantasy trip.
