feminine side of Givenchy fw12

There was a lot of leather going on at Givenchy’s fw12 collection. Black tailored coats, knee high boots that covered upper thighs, skin tight long gloves and flared dresses that were all inspired by horse riding. That’s not what I was focusing on from the collection. In contrast with the heavy materials, I thought the embellished rhinestones, soft silk/lace and kimono sleeves brought out a feminine side of the collection. Looking up close at the craftsmanship, rhinestones are carefully hand stitched on delicate silk/lace/chiffon. The embellishment gave a bit of Baroque decoration to the spaghetti strap cocktail dresses. The combination of black, red and small hints white reminded me of Givenchy’s Resort 2011 collection.The new military green with purple and orange with sky blue was also a great mixture to highlight the collection.
