Gothic Glamour In The Givenchy Collection

For the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2013 collection, creative director Ricardo Tisci drew his inspiration by taking a look at the archives from the 60s of founder Hubert de Givenchy. To this, Tisci added a dose of rigor inspired by nun’s garments and voilà: a collection that is bound to make any fashionista want to become a nun, worshiping the house of Givenchy.

Couture fabrics form the 60s, such as radzimir, taffeta, moiré, organza and duchess satin, made their appearance on the runway in sculptural silhouettes. Organza ruffles imitating angels’ wings, attached to the back of the clothes with gold clasps, voluminous bishop sleeves and catholic collars, all in powdered baby blue, next to black, white and grey silhouettes, completed the collection’s Gothic glamour air.
