Givenchy Fall 2011 Couture Collection
It’s become designer Riccardo Tisci’s practice in recent seasons to tone down the theatricality and let the clothes do the talking. Continuing in that vein, this collection was presented in three separate rooms entitled, “Angels,” “Bird of Paradise,” and “Clouds,” which should give you some idea of what to expect going in. The pieces are airy and ethereal, not to mention very, very beautiful. The palette runs the gamut from white to off-white, but we can’t complain when the results are so breathtaking. Tisci described it as “very pure and soft and fragile; a romantic dream.” We’d say he nailed it, then. This is what couture is about, insanely beautiful garments made with the absolute highest skill, utilizing the very finest materials. The only criticism we have is that this is all a bit expected and too similar to previous collections. Still, we can only imagine how beautiful these pieces look in person.
