Land roots with an urban twist: the Giovane FW19 collection tells the story of a mysterious Amazon raised in the countryside but informed by the urban peripheries. To accompany this western theme, Nightingale went to the Verbeke Foundation with Athos Burez to shoot the campaign for this exciting new collection.
A prominent style within the FW19 collection came to life thanks to the film Bandidas, which has also had the greatest influence on Giovane's fall collection. During the turn of the century of the Mexican era, two different women became a bank robber duo to fight a ruthless enforcer who terrorized their city.
With Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek as the muses for this collection, western-meets-gaucho elements such as blouses with pipings, bow shawls, maxi boho dresses, contemporary ponchos, checked and stripe patterns such as plaids 2.0 and Americana star & prints were omnipresent. Paisley prints waterproof to the iconic bandana, and accessories such as wide, country-style belts, western-style ties, cowboy ankle boots, and saddlebags are also available.
Since 2019, Nightingale has been the official creative partner for photoshoots and communications in Belgium. The Nightingale concept was brought to life by photographer and set designer Athos Burez.
