Givenchy’s Equestrian Fall – For fall 2012, Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci took a liking to equestrian inspired gear for the label’s presentation shown during Paris Fashion Week. Cropped capes, riding jackets, tapered trousers and thigh high boots dominated the autumn season. A gothic color palette of black, red and camel grounded the collection of slouchy silhouettes. Hard leather looks were followed up by slip style dresses decorated with delicate lace and glittered accents for a romantic touch to the upcoming autumn.

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.

Simply Divine at Givenchy – After last season’s parade of prints, Riccardo Tisci presented a toned down spring 2012 collection that may have been light on prints but still had all the trappings of Givenchy opulence. Dramatic ruffles, form-fitting silhouettes and tailored jackets defined the Givenchy woman for the new season. A bit of flash was added to the showing with sequin embroidered pieces that brought the perfect finish to a strong collection.
