Givenchy F/W women's ready-to-wear inspired by Gothic aesthetics

Riccardo Tisci has taken his inspiration from Latin America while creating the Fall/Winter 2008 women's ready-to-wear collection for Givenchy. Female sensuality is celebrated by teaming Latin joie de vivre with the designer's gothic aesthetic.

Latin savoir faire redefines French elegance in sharply tailored silhouettes. The key look for Fall/Winter is skinny long legs with a surfeit of volume on top. In homage to the Latin love of ruffles, frills and pleats have been reinterpreted in lace, cotton and poplin.

Worn with pantsuits, lace provides a feminine contrast to the collection's masculine tailoring. Softer feminine shapes include a tone-on-tone pale aqua dress, tight at the waist with a fluted skirt finished with ribbon embroidery, glass beads and hand-embroidered eyelets, inspired by a turn-of-the-century corset.

Executed in a mostly monochrome color palette, the collection's black and white symbolises the duality of hard and soft, history and modernity, which has come to represent the brand.

Dresses and shirts decorated with hand made pale gold hearts offer a playful nod to the Latin habit of wearing one's heart on one's sleeve - placing ex-voto's, or lucky charms, in churches as an expression of a wish.

The collection ends on a graphic note; architectural jackets and coats in cream wool are trimmed with passementerie and stamped with bold geometric shapes. Givenchy products are available at select Rodeo Drive outlets in the UAE.
