If you are infatuated with fashion like the girls here at EGL then you did not skip a beat when Givenchy decided to give a sneak peek of their 2016 Pre-Fall Collection via Instagram. The brand’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, used Berlin as a backdrop to deliver an edgy fashion campaign featuring hardcore denim looks to live for! We here at EGL are here to give you a more in depth look at the fashion collection that “broke the internet”.
In this first look Tisci is reminding us that accentuating your backside is never a bad thing. Model Irinashayk is sporting a simple camisole with lace detailing and drawing our eyes directly to the stars on the otherwise classic denim jeans. We love the idea of bleached denim shapes in place of back pockets to highlight our greatest asset, no pun intended.
In this second look zoom in under the cape and take a look at the denim jumpsuit. This short one piece is used as a layering piece and highlights the legs at the same time. The baggy fit adds a masculine touch and if worn by itself would give you a high end streetwear look. You would use this look to showcase that killer pair of heels you have been keeping in your closet for just the right moment.
When you pair both the jumpsuit and the cape together you may think that the cape steals the show. You would be right! Fall 2015 was all about the return of the cape. However, the fact that this cape is entirely denim with two pockets positioned to make it reminiscent of a jean jacket is brilliant. This look shows that the cape trend can continue into 2016.
Raise your hands if you are afraid to commit to the denim on denim look? PUT YOUR HANDS DOWN!!! Do not be afraid of the “Canadian Tuxedo”; in fact, Givenchy shows you exactly how to pair a denim top with a denim bottom in this look. We love that if you look closely you can see the white stiches pop against the dark denim fabric used to give the jeans a paneling effect.
It may be okay to completely ditch your staple jean jacket for this piece. In the look above see how studs are used to form clean vertical lines down the denim jacket and create detailing on the collar tips. Iri also sports a full length fitted denim jumpsuit that sports the same stud detailing on the chest pockets and down the sides of the pant leg. Might we suggest a chic cowboy boot with this look?!
How would you style the denim that Givenchy has designed for your closet? We want to hear from our streetwear chicas and our high fashion ladies!
