catastrophic. i find it absurd that everyone here seems to demand change from any other designer, pitching choice criticisms ("boring" and "hideous" anyone?) on the ateliers time-tested aesthetics and yet fawn incessantly over whatever tisci regurgitates. he can virtually suck the viscera out of last season's collection and spit the EXACT same looks and i don't think anyone's reaction here will change. hmmm...

then again, the name GIVENCHY does sound haute.. so i guess if people begin asking you what set of tattered rags you're wearing that day, nonchalantly namedropping GIVENCHY would put them in their place.

Stunning. Great continuation. I like this better than the last one.

Please stay at Givenchy don't move to Dior.

Tisci becomes with his HC Collections repetitive like Dolce and Gabbana with their sicilian theme. but when you stille re-create the same idea with clothes, which cost thousands bucks, that´s definitely not good way

i understand what you're saying but don't feel that this collection was a regurgitation, so much. some of the collection's details from last season are revisited, i would say. yet & still, most labels represent some form of redundancy- which is a 'signature' by any other word. the 'birds of paradise' concept is well executed when you look at the detailed shots- it's more focused on florals, whereas last couture collection was focused more on hardware & more structured details. i guess if you go back two seasons, that whole gold/gothic collection was a bit similar, but in palette- this collection was more pure; less about glamour more about romanticism.

i feel what you're saying about the whole name drop thing though; urks the hell out of me when people do that about chanel. which has been redundant for more than a few seasons now.

^ I really hate that background, it looks so stupid as it does with all the other collections. I really hope the HQs are taken in the atelier like past seasons.

Oh this is beautiful. And please, don't even put this on the same level as Marchesa.

Gorgeous, truly gorgeous. Tisci also understands that Haute Couture is no longer about spectacle, it is about giving something personal and special to the customer. These are clothes you can actually wear and they are magnificient.
