Galvan has been providing all of the options for evening-wear these days but the Spring 19 collection shows us new group of sultry separates that indicate we may be seeing the Galvan Girl during daylight hours.
The typically monochrome vibe at Galvan has been interrupted by vibrantly hued prints. The slips are still there, as are some of their fully sequined or metallic looks reminiscent of old-school evening-wear.
But this one-stop shop is clearly evolving, and in a more powerful direction. They have embraced the boss in all of us with their effortlessly chic take on the classic power suit, the perfect jumpsuit for every occasion day or night, and silk blouses and trousers that felt more appropriate for the board room than the ballroom.
Over the last couple of years, the slip dress has become a calling card for the Galvan girls, but for Spring 2019, they’ve proven themselves more than capable of designing outside of those lines. This season, they’ve introduced cool hot pink and purple calf-length dresses with pull ties at the side, high-waist trousers with neon corset tops, as well as more minimal black-and-white blouses.
A trip to Marrakech inspired the new colors and textures of Galvan’s spring collection, introducing pistachio green, pale yellow, red and rust, as well as macramé detailing and delicate hand-beading into the lineup. Such details gave the collection a more rustic hand, relatively speaking. Galvan is a modernist eveningwear label geared toward women who want their glamour sleek, young and fun. The dresses and jumpsuits are sexy, cut to emphasize the body, and fall on a spectrum that ranges from chic allure to just shy of cheesy. New additions for spring included a long-sleeved sequined dress in tonal pistachio green with a knot at the hip and a loose mid-length skirt, as well as a red high-necked style with an open back, and a tight, metallic ruched mid-length dress in an improbably flattering shade of rust.
