If gold and red are always abundant in Christmas collections, today we have the exception that proves the rule. And the fact is that Givenchy’s Folie Noirs Christmas makeup collection has the color black as its true protagonist. The black of elegance and sobriety combined in different textures and finishes to make it a luxury color for these dates. Givenchy’s Folie Noirs collection does not detract from the era we are in and is so beautiful that it is on a par with the other 2014 collections that we have already discussed, such as Golden Shock by Dior or Plumes Précieuses by Chanel.
“Black is a color that does not exist in nature, but that reveals everything”
Nicolas Degennes, Creative Director of Givenchy
With the conviction that everything black is beautiful, the firm’s creative director, Nicolas Degennes, has created a collection inspired by so many black elements that surround us and are full of beauty: black gold, black caviar, black velvet, the essential “Little Black Dress”, the black suits that Givenchy designed for Audrey Hepburn, a line of black eye-liner or the darkness of silence.
