GIVENCHY

Gold Maddess on the Runway! Riccardo Tisci presented a collection that put his talent properly and clearly on display for the first time. Not that buyers are disbelievers, or that women haven't run into Tisci's exceptional crisp blouses, sharp jackets, and subtly cut dresses in stores and been pleasantly shocked to find the label inside reads "Givenchy." It's just that until now, something—perhaps trying too hard for concept or atmosphere—has always scuppered the appeal on the catwalk.

This blouse in one word... AMAZING!
This season, Tisci got it all under control, and at just the moment to take advantage of the fact that fashion is turning in the direction of his kind of dark, romantic, faintly goth aesthetic. Those on the hunt for new tailoring—something beyond a predictable blazer—will salivate over his black pantsuits and cropped toreador jackets, and the way he showed them with a hugely wantable variety of frothy blouses, from crisp white cottons to fragile, frilled plissé chiffons. Not to mention the slick black patent wedge boots with their tab-and-Velcro fastenings. Or the singular shiny leather puffer that made urban utility look chic again.


The Hispanic influence became more obvious in the black lace and flamenco/matador touches later in the show, but (huge relief) the sense of modernity didn't end up sacrificed on the altar of theme. Where Tisci did ruffles and folkloric wool lace, it was often (and best) in chopped-up abstract appliqués on jackets and coats. Give or take a gold leather bubble dress and a slightly dubious revival of stretch pants, this collection finally shifted Tisci out of the "promising" category into a place where he deserves to be seen as a designer who has come of age.


Each piece has immaculate attention to detail (frankly I'm shocked it's RTW)

Ruffles, Crucifixes , Patent Leather & Gold makes an amazing modern collection - it's so now ...
