I like this, I don't love it but I like it. However the background is just ridiculous, they should have stick to the salon they used last season. To me the salon matched with the collection and it made sense but this bridge is distracting and ugly.

I think all credit goes to the seamstresses and everyone at Givenchy's atelier. In terms of design it's not groundbreaking, not to me.

Can someone post a picture to compare how this is similar to Marchesa? I would like to be prove wrong! Frankly I don't see it.

I am not too crazy about expecting designer to have something different on every season, this collection is nothing short of boring. Ricardo has once again excel himself!

I can't believe this is considered boring to some of you. This is the only couture show this season that has really wowed me.

(This is just my two cents)

It's because this aesthetic is something we've seen from him already (for a few seasons now). Riccardo Tisci is one of my most favorite designers, but I must admit that I'm getting slightly bored with this aesthetic. Sure it's absolutely stunning, yes there are great pieces here and there, but true artists, good artists, need to experiment outside of their comfort zone. Try new things -- which I know Riccardo Tisci is more than capable of doing.

i think ready-to-wear is the place to experiment...
couture should be timeless and classic in a way

i think this was beautifully done and shows tisci's vision for givenchy...
it's important to have some sort of consistency

yes, the look and feel is similar to what he's been doing...
but that doesn't mean that it isn't beautiful and exquisitely made

Interesting because I think the opposite
If haute couture means tradition and old time fashion values then I guess my definition of haute couture is a bit progressive.

I think I dislike this collection for a different reason than most people. It's not that I'm bored of the aesthetic, I've just never liked the aesthetic in the first place. To me, it looks like embellishing and putting lots of stuff together that don't look harmonized.

I'm 50/50 on that too. I see beauty but then I also get that Marchesa feel (not that i'm comparing this to Marchesa, but you know what I mean...like embellishment just to cover up for a lack of design)

Yes, I know this is his 3rd season of doing this style of dress, but like the old saying goes: if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

While I do agree that these are beautiful creations, my only problem with this collection is that it seems more appropriate for spring/summer, not fall/winter. Where's that sense of coziness, of warmth that you're supposed to see when looking at a fall/winter collection? Is there even a coat in this collection?
