Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2011

Ricardo Tisci was inspired by “Purity, lightness, fragility.” Those three adjectives couldn’t be more appropriate to describe these remarkable creations for Givenchy’s Haute Couture Fall 2011 collection.

Detail was paramount in this collection. Designs featured plumes, pearls, crystals and silk layering so fine and precise, that each dress is its own work of art.

Those looks aren’t my favourites from the collection, but they showcase couturier techniques I’ve never seen before. These dresses were the most expensive from the collection and the effect was achieved by placing hand-cut silk petals one by one.

Those two looks were my favourites from this immaculate collection.

The ten looks were almost all white, allowing for a focused, edited and extremely detailed collection. In a sea of colour-blocking and rich hues for fall, this collection stands out from the pack.  A sea of ice queens, or Tisci’s angels.
