GIVENCHY COUTURE 2010


Riccardo Tisci, you absolute hero. This is the most excited I've been about a couture show in a long while, it's incredible. Lace, feathers, fringe-work - amazing. In classic Tisci stlye, the collection is really sensual - all texture and flesh tones and racy mesh panels. The anatomy references are amazing without being novelty: skeleton shapes done in lace and bones for zippers. Can you imagine wearing one of these babies?! Encrusted with Swarovski, beads and god knows what else, one of them took 1,600 hours to make. Holy shit. 






More photos (yes that's right, I nicked the whole bloody thing off style.com, it's that good) after the jump. Also, read Tim Blanks' thoughts here.
