Tisci CoutureGivenchy designer Riccardo Tisci created a dark outing for the label’s spring 2012 haute couture show. Models including Natasha Poly, Kristen McMenamy and Saskia de Brauw wore oversize bullrings and earrings which also made an appearance in Givenchy’s menswear show earlier this month. These unusual accessories bring a certain harshness to the ten couture looks made of crocodile scales, leather and hand beaded crystals. Despite the change from last season’s ethereal gowns of ivory, Tisci managed to create an enchanting collection that was a cross between punk rocker and turn of the century glamour girl.

With a title like “Lust-Spiele” I was expecting to see a sin-filled series from Dusan Reljin. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover elegant settings and garments showcased instead. Once again, Reljin impresses me with his eye for beauty.
