Paris S/S 09: Givenchy

This season sees the use of some obvious trends, which I would touch on when the fashion month's over (which is in a few days time).
Some designers tried most of them, and failed.
But I would have to say that Riccardo Tisci incorporated them perfectly with his signature Gothic aura infused for this Givenchy collection.

No doubt that this collection would be yet another BIG hit.


One of his favourite pieces from every season, tuxedo suits, are in a more structural way with the rectangular hip below the belted waist. The neckline of the suits are also filled with criss-crossing details which looked uniquely chic.

Then feather textured sheer came onto the runway layered over mustard pieces, with models accessorized in a Lolita bow headband.








As models continue down the runway, 4 pieces of washed denim including jumpsuits and oversized blouse with rolled0up sleeves surprisingly took over the runway. With great styling as always, jumpsuits has cut-outs at the inner-thigh/crotch area that looked amazing with the inner layer of leather pants.

From there, Riccardo Tisci worked his way further with the leather pants as he included some playful prints on them.
At the last part of the show, Tisci let things hang loose with draped dresses and blouses, tied on with a knot, and closed with 3 oversized capes.

Tisci eye for the details are as emphasized as ever with glittery embroideries popping out once in awhile throughout the show on skirts or exhibited on a basic long tank under a layer of sheer top.
