“Purity” is what Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy used for his inspiration for the Fall 2011 Haute Couture collection. I’ve been looking forward to featuring these dresses for awhile now. I first came across this collection in July and obviously haven’t forgotten about it! I love everything about it…the way the dresses are photographed, the streamline shape and the beautiful details. Tisci used crystal drops with a reflective treatment to transform in different light on one dress and duck and ostrich feathers frame the neck of another. I also love how he kept the dresses modern with the cutaway backs, chunky zippers and sleek pulled back hair. To me these dresses truly embody what couture is all about.
