Riccardo Tisci is a superstar plain and simple. But then so are most of the people who come to his shows. So, as you can see, it was pandemonium just to get in (especially for non- superstars like me). But I suppose it was a good warmup for what was to come once inside the school-Lycée Carnot. Maybe Mr. Tisci intended to “school” us all a bit, and it really was an adrenaline rush to see this collection. The models marched zig-zag like fierce warrior goddesses through a labyrinth (gauntlet) of awestruck fashion people.
There were leather gladiator dresses alongside lace dresses with corsets and ties. Latticed and laced jackets in black and white. Skin tight knits with high waisted skin tight jeans. Over the knee high boots with peek-a-boo toe looked glamorous and fierce. The level of work and detail seemed more haute couture than ready to wear. And this was undoubtedly one of the sexiest of all the Spring Paris RTW collections. Givenchy SS2015 is brutallychic. givenchy.com
