If there's such a thing as being equally minimalist and over-the-top, Givenchy's Spring 2008 couture show is it. Natalia Vodianova and Lou Doillon looked on as Riccardo Tisci's creations came to life.
On the simple spectrum, there were slim white pants and tailored white blazers, sheer tank tops and ivory tights. The rest was drama at its best: accordion-like silhouettes, layered feathers, holey sequin jackets, sheer tiered gowns, overly exaggerated origami frocks, and pretty embellishments. The way I see it, if the no-frills Jil Sander and the overly frilly Dior produced a fashion-forward love child, this collection would be her. Model child indeed!
