One of the shows that took Paris fashion week by storm was Givenchy’s severely sensual, beautiful take on Jesuit Victoriana meets Chilean Chola girl gang.
Riccardo Tisci’s vision of pristinely cut peplums and sumptuous velvets that move as elegantly as the wearer with copious amounts of lace, jacquard and fur, helped end Paris Fashion Week on a high. The influence of myriads of editorials to come during AW’15.
Tisci, the maverick that he is, cleverly steered his vision to influence how we perceive beauty by studding and bedecking catwalk models with Indian Goddess meets Chilean street-gang jewellery that was every bit as striking and influential as the pristine layers of wonder that Tisci showed. This was a strong don’t-mess-with-me power-house feline dressed to kill. Or looking like she could.
So, when I came across the Fornasetti L’Eclaireuse candle with striking similarities in style, this reverberated just how much this ‘look’ will influence opinion formers to high street during the coming months. Get ready to face off and up.
The trend starts here.
