Givenchy Fall 2012


Riccardo Tisci’s fall vision is a bit vampy, a little sinister, and highly sexy. Strong equestrian tailoring was well mixed with wispy lingerie-inspired slips to present a slickly elegant display with a bit of spice.  Victorian era riding gear is rendered effortlessly modern with structured outerwear composed of lacquered leather and silky calf hide paneling while jodhpur-styled trousers are tucked into glossy thigh-high riding boots. A-line skirts (occasionally pleated) fan out with great fanfare, adding a flash of drama to an already dynamic collection.  And while the the color palette remains largely gothic, fiery corals and regal purples pack quite the punch.  Tisci has an interesting eye for color: icy blues are paired with vivid orange while poppy red accents deep olive.  Overall, I love the slouchy almost indolent silhouette exhibited here; there is an effortless sensuality about Tisci’s looks for the season.
