Paris Fashion Week: Givenchy Couture Fall 2012
Audrey Hepburn was one of the biggest advocates of Hubert de Givenchy, after meeting him in 1953 while shooting Sabrina. And it’s no wonder. The house of Givenchy has always been well known for its intricately designed gowns built with clean lines and attention to detail. And now, — almost sixty years later, — with Riccardo Tisci in his seventh year at the helm of Givenchy, we’re experiencing a resurgence of those intricate designs, but this time in the form of a floor-length cape with hand-strung beaded fringe, and a structured gown with a mink bodice and cashmere balance.
Tisci’s got a fair balance between minimalist chic and bohemian gypsy. The colour palate for the Givenchy Couture Fall 2012 collection was earthy; the makeup was natural.
And my favourite look? That gorgeous, subtlety glamourous nude-coloured gown with a sheared mink bodice.
