2009 Fall Paris Fashion Week: Givenchy

No matter what Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci serves up, it's always bound to be ahead of the curve. His latest Fall '09 collection, however, is also simultaneously beautiful, thanks to feather-infested gowns and romantic draping. But it wouldn't be Givenchy if it didn't throw together a mumbo jumbo of anomalies: studs and feathers, sheer and draping, asymmetry and power suits. The color palette is minimal, per usual — black, white, cream — but the silhouettes are anything but.

Pant suits were decked out in plush feathers, draped blouses were more interesting via rope details, LBDs were characterized by crazy draping, sheer blouses were given leather arms. You get the picture? There's more. Draped dresses bedazzled with studs, military style coats covered with fur, and strong shoulders. That's the world of Givenchy in a nutshell — so simple, yet painstakingly complicated.

What I really love are all the studded, peet-toe gladiator booties.

Ah, I'm so glad you featured this. :) This was absolutely one of my favorite collections this season... did you see some footage of the show?! It's SO much more moving in motion and the soundtrack adds so much drama and emotion to the show. Purely poetry, I love the juxtaposition between the light and dark elements, i.e. the feathers and lace and the studs and military hats. Heaven.
