Givenchy: Ride 'Em Cowboy

Givenchy: Ride 'Em Cowboy

So Riccardo Tisci went for a little denim this season, and quite a bit of leather, turning his collection into a 'wild west' inspired one--our question is whether the fabrics he used might conveniently bring the price point down just a little bit, or the profit on each garment up. One might also entertain the opposite argument, which is that no matter how accessible are the fabrics he used (the highly acclaimed Fall 08 collection showed couture-like details--it was just the opposite) the overall feeling is not exactly recession-friendly in terms of personality. In the show, we saw his signature skinny leather pants and cool jackets. There were a few more darling pieces like an oversized cape, and some softer colors, like pale yellows and nudes. In between that we saw the typical, vaguely gothic, naughty uniform which really gave it the edge. Even if some critics didn't like it, we thought it was distinctly Givenchy and will likewise inspire a slew of trickle-down trends. Hipster labels like Robert Gellar are already thinking along the same lines.
