Spring 2016 RTW: Givenchy

"Striking a masterful, almost impossible balance, Tisci delivered a glorious oxymoron of an event: a quiet spectacular." – via wwd.com
I actually managed to catch the livestream of this runway show on vogue.com and I would say that this quote is true – it was very quiet and contemplative, but it wasn't easy to look away.

I also love the black and white version of this illustration  :p

Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear: Marni

"Marni is a brand with a woman-friendly reputation for color and print, and this collection did have plenty of it. […] But it was with her giant leaf prints on graceful elongated tunics over fluid trousers that the collection really hit its stride. It was then that the anxious viewer stopped worrying about what it would feel like to manage all those semi-garments and began to appreciate the chic neo-moderne metal and dangly acetate earrings and chunky lacquer bracelets that are such a Marni draw." – via vogue.com

Spring 2016 Ready-to-Wear: Delpozo

"For Spring, Font’s women were those of Federico García Lorca’s Gypsy Ballads and Emilie Flöge, muse to Gustav Klimt and, in fact, a fashion designer herself who envisioned proto-bohemian styles far ahead of her time. Many a creative director has name-checked Flöge in the past, but rather than appearing merely as a vessel for Klimt’s famous aesthetic, here Font found a grounding force in Flöge’s love of folklore, and the similarly earthy qualities to be found in Lorca’s famous book." – via vogue.com
