The color red reminds us of many different emotions such as anger, love, passion and more. It also makes us think of a certain feeling; heat. And what better season than the chill of winter to be reminded of this warmth? Countless designers showcased their completely vibrant red looks on the runway in a number of 2017-18 Fall/Winter collections.
No one does the fire red quite like Givenchy, which can be credited to the iconic creative direction of Riccardo Tisci who was the brains behind the design of the label from 2005-2017. Die hard fans will feel a sense of nostalgia when viewing this year’s preview of Givenchy’s fall/winter collection. It was inspired by the archives of the brand as it consists of red dresses, pants, shoes, tops (the list goes on) and has a unique way of incorporating mesh into every look as well.
