Yawn. This is becoming a glorified Marchesa at this point. How much beading and decorations can one take? Plus, it's the same thing in different colors for three seasons running now. I'm sure the detailing is beautiful, etc, but I'd like some variety in Givenchy HC collections at this point.
Amen sista. Glorified Marchesa indeed! I'm already tired of it. It's pretty to look at, but if these dresses had been made by Marchesa and not Givenchy, this whole collection would've gotten trashed for its gaudiness.
If Tisci is going to Dior, and if this is what we can expect from him there, then I won't even bother with that.
I agree with all of those who say its a bit of more of the same, the first picture feels like nothing really new BUT!, if it´s working so well, the dresses up close are so extremely beautiful and women are actually wearing them (I saw at least half of the dresses from last season in red carpets around the glove), wouldn´t it be almost ridiculous not to keep on exploring this formula?.
Part of this not being entirely new proves it is actually working and that it is being accepted by couture costumers (Chanel, Armani, aren´t they always but never the same too?).
I never enjoyed Givenchy HC by Ricardo so much before he started making this small collections.
