Utterly angelic yet devilishly ornate. For Fall 2010 Givenchy‘s Couture gowns were fringed, feathered, beaded, laced, jewelled, and appliqued. But at no time did they even tiptoe over the line between extravagance and exorbitance. Each piece was a careful patchwork of sheer perfection, and still Riccardo Tisci‘s penchant for dabbling in darkness gave a rough edge to the ethereal beauty of the gowns.
Pay careful attention: a motif of bones trickles through the collection in skeletal shapes. We’ve no doubt this work of Tisci’s will bring the theme of subtle Gothic undertones back into strong influence.
