Givenchy Couture Fall 2008

Riccardo Tisci has done for Givenchy what Nicolas Ghesquière achieved at Balenciaga: making the brand his own, giving it a young, modern, urban edge. Of course the classic Givenchy spirit remains intact through sharp tailoring and attention to detail. But the gothic-glamour style, biker jackets and head-to-toe one-color outfits are Tisci's signature.

His Haute Couture collection for fall 2008 season had a subtle Peruvian vibe visible through the color scheme used: gaucho browns, dark kakis, bold pinks and folkloric patterns on knits. Daywear included tailored ensembles: wide-leg trousers worn with leather jackets, three-piece suits (slim long blazers, fitted vests and skinny pants) as well as luxe bomber jackets teamed with asymmetric jersey dresses.

Eveningwear came in form of all-over fringed dresses in blush & fuchsia, a wonderful one-shoulder, purple silk mini dress and long, black lace gowns looking tough and confident under biker jackets and wool capes.
