Popular French luxury fashion house, Givenchy, is giving a look into their 2017 Fall Tuxedo Capsule Collection. This comes after their announcement that they will be unveiling a kids collection this summer. Givenchy is counting on this tuxedo collection to make a statement and showcase their direction.
The new collection of modern tuxedos has a clean and sleek design with great details. They consist of quality fabrics and unique Italian craftsmanship, giving them a contemporary and fashion-forward design. Even the embellishments, a Givenchy signature, are very detailed and distinctive. Yet, none of this takes away from the overall sophistication of the collection.
One look at the samples of this collection can ignite visions of galas, awards ceremonies, and weddings. Basically, any formal occasion would be the appreciate time to pull one of these tuxedos out of the closet to adorn your body. There’s no doubt that one of these designs will be seen on the red carpet in the near future. Men should be very pleased with what Givenchy has accomplished for them.
Just in case anyone is unclear at what exactly is a “capsule collection”, it’s a few timeless and iconic pieces placed together in a condensed form of a collection. Usually, only essential pieces that can be worn in various situations during multiple seasons will be placed in a caspsule. At least that’s what it meant when it started in the 1970s. Now, the same notion is invoked, however, it’s moreso for statement pieces that have a special quality or feature but not always are as fluid in fashion as they should be. The term has been used a little too loosely recently, but die hard designer fashion houses like Givenchy still use it correctly.
This new collection is a part of Givenchy’s plan to stay in line with their luxury vision. A plan that was enacted by their new creative director Clare Waight Keller. She replaces Riccardo Tisci, who held the title for more than 12 years. Claire was previously the creative director at Chloé’s, a job that she held since 2011. She also spent time at Calvin Klein, Gucci, Ralph Lauren’s Purple Label, Tom Ford, and Pringle of Scotland. Even though she’s had a lot of experience in the fashion industry, she has never worked in haute couture, which will be a new challenge for her at Givenchy.
The Givenchy’s 2017 Tuxedo Capsule Collection will be available for this year’s Fall/Winter fashion season.
