Couture Spring 2012: Back To The 20s With Givenchy

If you are after drama and exquisite detailing from Paris Couture Fashion Week then you don’t have to look further than Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. Once again, his Givenchy couture offering was divine, with the Art Deco era of the Twenties and Thirties a key influence in the collection.

There may only be 10-pieces, but each floor-length gown has a feminine appeal, with geometric embroidery, crystal embellishments and fringed detailing in a colour palette of black, white, brown, cream and bronze – all presented with the most opulent of jewellery and elbow-length gloves.

Of course I can’t look at Couture without thinking Oscars and these three are my top picks. I am going for Rooney Mara choosing the black number, minus the jacket, but hoping that she pairs it with some of the jewellery from the collection. I also loved the white and bronze dresses as well. I think the halterneck bronze design is the most likely to go from runway to red carpet.

I also love the basketball court setting – it really made the dresses look incredible and if possible more feminine. Loved the collection.
