Dazzling modernity
at Givenchy


The haute couture collection created by Riccardo Tisci evokes the eroticism of a new breed of glam-rock heroine. Women in black and white tuxedos decked out in tufts of floating feathers exude a totally 70s vibe. The designer revisits the iconic obsessions of the House with geometric prints and Oriental references.

The parade of fabulous evening wear included trompe-l’oeil sheath dresses and fluid gowns with exceptional draping in colors from tender beige to vibrant green and violet. Sheer layered silk organza and embroidered glass pearl discs made for stunning bermudas, T-shirts and other pieces borrowed from ready-to-wear.
