_MON0172_MON0817_MON0016So I hope you will forgive that I was “M.I.A.” for a few days.But now it’s back to business! We left off with my aversion to picking just one favorite dress in the SS2015 collections and the resulting Three Dresses Series. These Givenchy dresses are a perfect example. I saw the show three weeks ago in Paris and its still seared into memory. These girls were bad-ass and so were the clothes. And I was struck by the way the dresses stood out in this collection. Floating by amongst all the leather, corsets and over the knee lace up boots were these highly feminine chiffon and crochet dresses.The black dress even has a pretty little bow at the waist! They really struck just the right balance of sexy and pretty. The tough girl with loving intentions. In short, Givenchy SS2015 is Paris Fashion Week Diary: Givenchy S/S2015 RTW


IMG_2683IMG_2689IMG_2826IMG_2827IMG_2696IMG_2729Riccardo 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 RTW F/W 2014
