Givenchy Hauté Couture Fall 2010

 Riccardo Tisci insisted that the new layout for Givenchy’s Haute Couture would make for a more intimate showing. Tisci ditched the runway in favour of a showroom style display. The collection itself was comprised of just 10 looks - all floor length pale gowns except for one darker gown in a dark chocolate colour. Each with dramatic embellishments, some with sheer or lace inserts and teamed with long-haired fur coats.

Despite the simplistic colour palette, Tisci concentrated his efforts on the fine details of each dress - many were so intricately designed that they were a true feast for the eyes - each design was chock-full of textured embellishment, from smooth pearls to tousled fringe. The dresses were body skimping, yet structured in design - many cinched in at the waist providing a flatteringly feminine, yet powerful silhouette.

Even if it this feels like a downscale for Givenchy’s Hauté Couture collection, it’s a triumph for Tisci, who when restricted to just ten garments, will make sure they are all awe-inspiring.
