With R&B songstress Rihanna donning the new Balmain campaign, Beyonce working several and a few others sprinkled about, it seems as if the natural beauty of African-American are being recognized within high fashion. Hopefully this isn’t just a season as it works well and offers a new dynamic of grace, beauty and perspective. That said, today Givenchy removes the veil on their Spring/Summer 2014 with Erykah Badu. Along with several others, Badu exudes confidence and style in the new visual that highlights standout items from the forthcoming collection.
Shot by famed fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the shoot keys on models Asia Chow, Maria Borges, Eboni Riley, Dominik and of course Erykah Badu. Much of the looks focus on formal wear, gowns, dresses, overcoats and suiting. Clean while equally avant-garde, Riccardo Tisci picks up right where he left off last year, captivating his audience with stylish wears for the fashion forward individual.
