Japanese Inspired Givenchy S/S 11 Haute Couture

26 Jan

Givenchy surely entered the Couture season with a bang. Rather than having the usual runway show, they held a private presentation at the Hotel Evreux on Place Vendôme.

Although I like the whole drama and action of the runways, a private presentation gives a personal touch to the show and not to forget the opportunity of watching the presentation from so close.

In addition to a private presentation, Givenchy also stood out with its breathtaking Japanese inspired Collection more precisely by the work of Kazuo Ohno, a traditional Butoh dancer. T

The ensemble included beautiful large frontal knots, geometrical necks, sharp patterns, huge poky head gears in pale color frontals and bright color sexy backs.

However, unusual it may be look, I must admit I am definitely impressed by how they brought together history with modern imagination with extreme attention to details on each outfit. Moreover, it gives us a break from the regular Couture shows which look more or less the same.

Harpersbazaar revealed today that “The collection featured only 10 looks and they all had jackets. The intricacy of the beading, including very tiny matte sequins, was astonishing — one dress took over 4,000 hours to produce”. Damn ! ladies and gentlemen, now thats what we call a COUTURE!.

Check out the pictures from the show below.
