What the actual **** is this? How can he go from such an incredible spring collection, to another incredible haute couture collection, and then produce horrendous menswear and womenswear collections?
Is he trying to be a smooth trend-setter instead of continuing to provide his Givenchy customer with a new wardrobe? Take a leaf out of Demeulemeester's book.. Is he actually joking with this junk?

I'm going for a Gianni Versace meets Christopher Kane with a sprinkle of Jean Charles de Castelbajac actually.

I love it. It's a bit more humour-filled than his usual collections. The see through panther prints are absolutely sexy and mysterious at the same time.
But NOT a fan of the print on Mariacarla's dress, it looks outdated and too showy.

It reminds me of YSL S/S 2007 LITTLE. I think it's the styling.

I find the all-black looks super stunning and chic.
The prints are questionable though, especially the not so subtle ones with a random panther placed haphazardly. It's a little gimmicky.
Still the more subdued looks (like on Hilary or Candice) are solid.

and LOL the glasses, is this a big joke on us, riccardo?
So true, Prada has ugly prints that are somehow not that ugly when looked at hard. But this is just not working for me in any way. The skirts do look a little cheap. I'm just very confused by this collection.

Instantly thought of Gianni Versace in those prints. It's very that.

Love the setting and the all black looks...but I HATE those panther prints. Just as gimmicky and lame as the menswear prints.

I HATE how the shoes go too far up the front of the foot. What do you call that? A shoe wedgie?

I see some nice pieces here and there... but overall, I think its a too heavy emphasis on print.

Oddly enough, this looks more like a spring collection than his actual spring 2011 collection did.

Not that I am a fashion pro, but I don't think this does not come up to the corporate image of Givenchy.
Seeing this collection Givenchy seems to more and more evolve into one of those super trendy streetwear houses.... There is no neo-gothic chic left.... neither I see "magic" here... This is a nice streetwear collection and it lacks timelessness - In 4 years you will look at this collection and think "OMG, they used to wear such crap in 2011"?
