I could never expect anything of this kind to see in clothing. Givenchy‘s creative director Riccardo Tisci is an incredible genious though he is a strange one really. The Fall 2010 Couture collection will be hard to forget if ever possible.
Garments that were truly exquisite and took so much time to make were inspired by life and death of Frida Kahlo, a famous Mexican artist. Frida had three obsessions in her life: religion, sensuality, and, given the painter’s lifelong battle with spinal pain, the human anatomy. The latter was represented in Givenchy’s Fall 2010 Couture collection.
Skeletons were richly embroidered on the pieces, all in details. You could see ribs, spine… Sounds terrible but it was awsome.
Tisci decided that organizing a runway show wasn’t the best idea to demonstrate his Givenchy Fall 2010 Couture range. So, he showcased it in a private presentation in the gilded rooms of an apartment on Place Vendome in Paris. 10 models wearing chic dresses stood in corners fully open to see by Givenchy’s guests.
The most amazing thing was the fact that one of the dresses from Givenchy Fall 2010 Couture collection took 1,600 hours to create. Imagine what the work it was!
I admire you, Mr Tisci. Truly, with all my heart.
