Givenchy Haute Couture Fall 2011: The Incredible Beauty of Lightness
Long Nguyen is the co-founder/style director of Flaunt. PARIS--Light, airy, heavenly, and ethereal are usually not words used to describe a fall/winter collection, but they were the precise words to utter about the Givenchy fall 2011 haute couture by Riccardo Tisci. It was presented last night at the spacious Hôtel d’Evreux on Place Vendôme, where two models wore long white sleeveless gowns, with small pieces of lace forming floral patterns. Each of the Givenchy couture presentations since fall 2010 have been a hard lesson in couture techniques, and this collection was no exception. The 10 looks divided into three rooms--Angels, Bird of Paradise and Clouds--were truly remarkable.
