Givenchy see-through collection with air of summery freshness
Jan '09
Tapping into the current see-through trend, Givenchy's chief designer Riccardo Tisci has launched its Spring/Summer 2009 Women's Ready-to-Wear Collection which speaks of understated, chic tailoring teamed with exquisite, expensive fabrics.

What really stands out in the collection are Tisci's shoes which are truly an unusual sight and are getting extra-special attention during fashion shows. Thigh-high leather boots worn with an all-black minidress, the tightest of monochrome print lycra trousers and punky, puff-shouldered jackets are all stalking down the catwalk, requiring serious attitude, but delivering instant style upon the Givenchy fan who intends to wear it this season.

The new collection certainly has an air of summery freshness about it and the accessories are all-out amazing. Black once again is the dominant colour and most of Tisci's creations from shoes and bags to his dresses come in dark hues, giving chic new life to this colour.

Once again leggings take over half leather chaps, half-jeans, or skintight black lycra with white leaf appliqués flaming up the sides. The collection also uses lace and the frothy shirts are perked up with gold bows and diamanté brooches in the shape of sheriff's badges.

This is a collection where the simple colour palette – black, white, beige, gold, silver, yellow – is offset by rich decorative elements, notably crystal-incrusted buttons and rows of triangular crystals sewn upright around tailored jackets.

Never far below the surface, the dark romance that Riccardo Tisci has made a Givenchy signature emerges in a series of vests and waistcoats with severe 'bondage' straps, peeping out from beneath boxy jackets or large sheer volumes of chiffon.

Riccardo Tisci is the kind of designer whose shows attract a large number of enthusiasts backstage in Paris who just wish to congratulate him and see this designs up close. His customers spare no expense to get hold of a Givenchy signature clothes, bags, and shoes.

So even when the market is passing through recession, Tisci's creations still make women keel over with desire for a Givenchy product. Givenchy products are available at select Rodeo Drive outlets in the UAE.
