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 ambience 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.
CANDIDE PINK BLUSH GELEE (Limited Edition)
Nicolas Degennes wanted to create a playful must-have product, that would offer a new beauty sensation on skin. An oh-so fresh and soft jelly texture that easily melts on cheeks for a natural and buildable result. A unique integrated soft foam applicator, with a very soft end, that slightly touches the skin to leave the ideal touch of emotion on cheeks. A skin-like buildable result : a very natural fresh rosy glow on cheeks, for a healthy “pinched cheeks” look.
Brown and orange tones for essential eyes, awakened by a touch of fresh spring green. Thanks to the powder atomizing technique, the particles are smaller and more even for a smooth, uniform finish and colors that stay vibrant all day long.
COFFEE MAGIC KHOL (New Shade)
Nicolas Degennes has created one new catalogue shade of Magic Khôl, a frozen brown, that is perfectly in line with the natural simplicity of this new Spring collection. A wave of this magic wand along the upper or lower lash line transforms your look as if by magic. The firm and creamy texture allows you to obtain a makeup result that combines faultless lasting hold and intense color.
Givenchy Naivement Couture Collection For Spring 2011 will be released in Singapore by end of March or beginning of April. I do not have an exact date of the launch but I will surely update once I have the details. Information above are extracted from Givenchy’s website.
