Paris Couture AW12: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci

Wow, wow, wow!!!

I have to own up I am a huge fan of Givenchy and Riccardo Tisci, the Resort 2013 with its gypsy vibe was simply perfection, and it seems the gypsy is still an inspiration for the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2012 collection, which is described as “the opulence of the gypsy world meets the pure lines of the 1960s” in the presentation notes, which translated by me equals as utterly divine.

What I am loving other than the gorgeous collection of 10 floor-length silhouettes, which have a dark and powerful vibe about them, especially when they are all stood together with a guard dog as their accessory, has to be all the intricate leather embroidery and the beaded fringing.

If you are after couture, seriously Givenchy has to be one of the first places to go, as what I love is the fashion houses’ incredible attention to detailing and its use of use rich and elaborate materials, as well as its stunning approach to styling. Seriously how cool do the oversized mask-like gold-rimmed shades look – perfect finish for Riccardo’s gypsy queens!!!

I am not sure what is more beautiful the collection or that gorgeous dog – what a stunner!!!
