Excuse me while my eyes feast on the beauty that is Givenchy Couture.

monastic vestments,native fringe,romani embroideries.....there's a lot to take yet i love how he executed everything very concisely. best givenchy HC i've seen in a while. and i adore the more intimate presentation.

and the shepherd reminds me of that peter lindbergh photo with kirsten owen and stella tennant.

I really don't know what to think, I mean it's nice but I just can't seem to get into it I like the first outfit with the fringed jacket and the shiny sarreoul pants but for some reason the capes just aren't doing it for me. I love the setting though, he always knows just where to have these collections photographed I'll sleep on it, maybe it will grow on me.

Wow this is insanely beautiful. I love the setting. (p.s LOVING that they show the back of the dog too. so cute)

I don't know if I like the shoes. From far away it looks like sandals. I would expect something harder you know?

I like this collection, but I'm not thrilled about it. It feels kind of familiar.

The look on Joan and the pinky/beige looks are the best

Riccardo always shines the most when it comes to Couture. I find Givenchy RTW to be a little hit and miss at times, but I always swoon for his HC collections and this is no exception.

Gorgeous details and I love the continuity of the theme between all looks. Nothing feels out of place.

Absolutely perfect cast too, might I add. FINALLY we see some diversity, and the collection is all the better for it.

^ Yeah, I agree.

While I very often HATE what he offers as RTW, his couture collections are almost always a hit for me. What inspires him always transfers way better in Couture than in RTW. This is no exception.

While the collection doesn't have a "wow" factor, it shows some sort of modern day warrior princess that I really like.

I'm not sure how I feel about the individual pieces, they are beautiful no doubt, but nothing is really doing IT for me. A bit too heavy. However, it comes together so beautifully as a collection that I don't care. The colours, the casting, the shapes, I love it all.

And I want that dog in my life, stat.
