s/s 2012 paris: givenchy.

collections Uncategorized

riccardo tisci is usually known for his collections that verge on the dark side, but the spring givenchy show was all about the sea. not only was it less edgy, but it felt more grown up, for a woman confident in her curves and assured in her stride. the only hint of toughness came in the form of eelskin used as trim on lapels and hems and oversized shark tooth pendants worn with many looks. i loved the focused palette of pink, white, olive and black, and the sparkly iridescent pieces in the middle of the show, but mostly i loved that tisci expanded his thinking and delivered a knockout collection.
