Givenchy Haute Couture Spring Summer 2009

Givenchy designer Ricardo Tischi is coming into his own. He showed a well edited and beautifully executed collection at the romantically lit Couvent des Cordeliers in Paris. Check out the rose petal strewn runway. The mood was romance with a bondage twist : gracefully draped dresses that hid straps discreetly hidden under transparency. Fabric research was state of the art : we especially loved a little beige dress that was painted jersey ! Could have sworn it was leather, but so soft to the touch.
