PFW S/S 2012 – Givenchy

Givenchy SS12
Riccardo Tisci is still atop his unshakeable pedestal. Though I risk sounding like a Sarah Jessica Parker movie by saying so…I don’t know how he does it.

Givenchy for Spring/Summer 2012 was incredible. As the show opened, Natalia Vodianova stepped out in a nude, sleveless, dropped-lapel jacket that demonstrated a merging of rigid tailoring and fluid movement that would encapsulate his entire collection.

Throughout the presentation there was a waterworld theme hinted softly in the craftsmanship. With his unparalleled skills, Tisci managed to create 3-d wave effects through tiers of ruffles. Genius. The embellishment of the season was seen in icy silver-blue sequins placed on one of his wave-like lapelled jackets with matching pants. The theme wasn’t overplayed, yet it penetrated every seam. That is what made the collection.
