Givenchy Spring 2011 Collection: Naivement Couture

Givenchy Spring 2011 Collection: Naivement Couture

If the world’s first woman were to be born today in the primeval garden, she would no doubt have a different vision of paradise. Nature would be tamed, its energy restrained, creating an ambiance in which she would more likely cut down the Tree of Knowledge than water it. But springtime always manages to awaken desires and dispel gloomy ideas. The impulse to seek gratification is driven by a sixth sense, making us eager for any and all sorts of sensations. A breath of pure air to be discovered or devised. The Must-Have, Blush Gelée, is a rich elixir of youth, illuminating a self-assured candour with fresh energy. NAÏVEMENT COUTURE (“naively couture”) is an autosuggestion of happiness.

Skin bared to the sunlight, we purge our sensations and embrace our innocence in order to accept our feelings. The exhilarating purity of light, a gentle warmth, tenuous and sensual, that transports us to an apogee of emotion, to be reborn with a uniquely personal authenticity. A rebirth that makes sense of the sensorial and focuses on the essential. To let ourselves succumb to a playful nature that knows where to tickle to raise a smile, like giving ourselves over to the hands of the designer for that first couture gown, this collection suggests a beauty that is lived and experienced. Allowing the hand to wield its innate intelligence, to play with lovely colours and fresh textures, is an invitation to enjoy the precious, cunning gift of self-indulgence. A natural, soothing sensuality for a springtime filled with joy.

It’s all beautiful, but the orange lips stand out the most for me…any idea of out much the lipstick and gloss will cost in Europe? and btw when it will be launched as well

Usually I don’t even look at Givenchy, but the model’s makeup looked so wonderful I had to take a peek! The blush gellies look amazing, and the colors of the lipsticks, eyeshadow, and gloss was so mesmerizing I might just be spending my money on it… and become broke! HAH!

I actually like the look. She looks young and fresh. Over plucked brows on some women just makes them look a lot older and brows that are so thin aren’t very appealing.

Except for the blush gelée and the khôl pencil, everything from this collection would look absolutely dreadful on me. On top of that, I don’t even know why but the promo picture kind of freaks me out. Gorgeous dress btw.

I can’t believe how Photoshopped that picture is! It’s to the point of where her eyes look like they are almost separate to her face…On a related note, I think that Givenchy is somewhat out of my price range. >.<

The colors are really pretty, but she’s been photoshopped so much that she looks like CGI…and that blurb seems kind of silly to me.

Absolutely stunning for photography–ethereal, dreamy, other-wordly–obviously not for everyday. But it sure would be fun to play with the individual pieces.

So juicy colours that make you want to buy the whole Collection indeed!!!! Well the orangy gloss is a must as well as the lipstick in the same shade. Regarding the blush gel, I tried it and was really dissapointed. The colour is not intense at all. You can try instead the blush gel from Smashbox or the brand new one from THE BODY SHOP Spring Collection which is amazing!!!!
