GIVENCHY presents the GV Shower, an iconic jewelled style for Summer 2019.
GV 7136/S – GV SHOWER
For Spring-Summer 2019, artistic director Clare Waight Keller transforms the GV Mask, a style she first created for her Spring-Summer 2018 collection, into a spectacular piece of jewelled eyewear: the GV Shower. With a nod to the abstract notion of mirrors that informs this season’s collection, the GV Shower was one of the most dramatic pieces on the runway at GIVENCHY’s Spring-Summer 2019 show; it was also featured in video teasers and still photos for this season’s advertising campaign.
Like the Podium jewellery line, this style is inspired by rain showers and is rendered in precious-looking materials, a metaphor for nature’s perpetual state of transformation: in springtime, ice melts into water.
A linear ‘mask’ base is embellished with hundreds of hand-applied Swarovski crystals that enhance the frame and spill into a cascade of crystals at the temples. Crystal fringe sways around the face as the wearer moves, like shimmering raindrops. Created in a limited series, the GV Shower is available with clear or tinted grey lenses, and with adjustable nose pads for ease of wear.
The GV Shower will be available at Givenchy boutiques, high-end opticians and leading department stores in April 2019.
The GIVENCHY collection of sunglasses and optical frames is produced and distributed by Safilo Group, a worldwide leader in the design, manufacturing and distribution of sunglasses, optical frames, sports eyewear and products. Thanks to strong craftsmanship expertise dating back to 1878, Safilo translates its design projects into high-quality products created according to the Italian tradition.
