IVANMANunveiled its Spring/Summer 2017 collection during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Ljubljana.
The collection draws its inspiration from the 80s film Baghdad Café. In the film, as in fashion, world views collide with modern life clashing against traditions. From this wild and oblique world spring new constellations of colors, shapes, and forms. Classic men’s wear, eloquent and rich in details, engage with modern impulses to create a collection that is at once harmonious and unfamiliar. Each look focuses on distinct structures reinvigorated by an innovative dynamic of colors.
For Fall/Winter 2017, Riccardo Tisci used Western American references out of his childhood memories to build a positive Givenchy collection made of signature House codes such as horizontal stripes, stars, embroidered check patterns and graphic colorful prints.
Taking inspiration from English royalty and Kings’ scandals of abdications to the art paint and costumes of Ainou and African tribes or even from their own experience of brotherhood, Valentin and Florentin Glémarec explored family, power games and a affiliation.
