merry christmas lovelies!
i hope you had a great year, filled with happiness and blessings!

well this review will be short, because of the many things to do during the holiday season.

Riccardo Tisci captures my mind with the GIVENCHY SPRING 2010 collection.

short excerp from STYLE.COM : "What he sent out was a fusion of Arabic influences, goddesslike draping, and, according to the program notes, the results of his new research into sixties Roman couture. If that sounds like nonsense on paper, in fact almost every garment had an intensity of proportion and detail that looked incredible: the graphic jackets; tiny kilts; attenuated drop-crotch harem pants; cool, multilayered, modernized tutus; and draped, wrapped, and swathed tulle dresses."

this was so incredibly cohesive, yet each piece spoke a own language. the beginning pieces were all minimal and clean lines. the pieces were both masculine and feminine,  with sharp edges and drapey silhouettes. then came the patterns, which all were eye-popping and in-your-face. they were so incredibly meticulous and intricate! after the rush of patterned models came the beautiful soft pieces. these were all gorgeous and soft looking pieces that wrapped the models up like delicate cocoons. the detail on several dresses on the shoulders really stood out. the ruffling and draping of ALL the pieces really wowed me.
truly a great collection.

merry christmas again readers!

Thank you so much for your sweet comment. Btw this post is amazing, I love this collection of Givenchy.

Haha many people in the Netherlands have more than 1 name. But Tauka is a bit more special because it's a african name.

Love & thanks for your comment.
