PFW: Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011

The Givenchy Spring/Summer 2011 show saw creative director Riccardo Tisci bringing out that vampy aesthetic that has become synonymous with the Givenchy label. Tisci’s toughened up looks came with bowl-cut hair and dark lips, as each model took to the runway with his stark ensembles. The dreamy, gothic designs came in monochrome white and black, while most looks were infused with at least a slight touch of leopard print, which was toughened up (and thus modernised) when combined with leather motorbike gilets and tailoring. Sheer layers were also key to this collection, perhaps adding a touch of sexiness to the androgyny on show.

 The collection ran close together, all seamlessly as part of one single vision, as created by Tisci. There was no elaborate gowns or high-glamour - it was darker, yet elegant, with tailored trousers, loosely fitted sheer pants and zipped up, sleeveless bodies. As a whole, Tisci provided a powerful collection, with bold cuts and daring materials, with never a dull moment despite the lack of colour. His single-mindedness kept the collection beating, with just one heart at the core of it all.
