Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011

I love Riccardo Tisci and I love Givenchy. I love that ferocious, gothic Givenchy has embraced a slightly softer side as wisps of sheer fabrics wafted in the models’ wake as the glided down the catwalk. Tisci’s collection has been infused with leopard-print, either touches of leopard print to his tailored pieces or entire leopard print dresses towards the end of the show. Normally, this print seems to scream luxury and wealth, but in this collection it looks a lot more subtle and cooler than it ever has, leopard print is suddenly made very modern. I love the contrast between monochrome and leopard print, of sharp tailored pieces and ethereal, sheer draping.

    The outfits are brilliant and original and I absolutely love the use of leopard print. But those models, jeesh, they look kinda scary.
