"Victorian Cholas" was the source of Riccardo Tisci's collection or was it "Death Becomes Her" morning attire from the Costume Institute's exhibition? Either way, Givenchy gave us kiss curls, braids, septum and face jewelry. The collection was a dark brooding one complete with the silhouette that he loves.
The catholic cross was stitched into the bodice of a dress that was corseted and worn with peplum jackets, and one of the top trends for fall, the dress over the cropped pants that has been seen on the runways from New York to Milan and now Paris.

In my opinion that’s what a dose of youth brings to the table. The collection started out with black and white stripes and checked looks, which were all simple and beautiful. Next, the collection morphed into black fisherman style sweaters and full skirts, one of the top trends for fall. Things began to unfold at look 12 with a short A-line Broderie Anglaise black dress, then multi-color lace dresses followed by coats with lace embroidered over cashmere and printed multi-color coats over lace dresses.
