Givenchy’s couture perfection: Fall 2010

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.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
