Givenchy Couture Says Yes to Expensive

Mickey Boardman

We're big fans of Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci. Each season in his ready-to-wear collections for Givenchy he seems to strip away layers of his aesthetic reaching a more pure, spartan and monastic statement about shape and ornamentation. Or perhaps that's just the lapsed Catholic in us projecting Tisci's fashion-religious ecstasy. Well for his couture presentation this week the monastic seems to have been dispatched in favor of a no-holds-barred exploration of adornment. The small collection Tisci presented exudes luxury, cries out to touched and screams expensive! And it is. And that's what the couture ladies like.
