For his pre-fall 2010 collection, Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci is sticking to his similar inspiration for his spring/summer 2010 collection of a graphic and androgynous looks with the results being stunning. Riccardo said, “It’s much more clean. I’m going back to Givenchy’s roots, looking at late-sixties, early-seventies French style.”
Riccardo’s signature studding and heavy embellishments are gone being replaced with feminine and masculine elements hitting a bit of eroticism with inspiration from the 1974 film Emmanuelle. The collection features an ivory tuxedo over a shirt dress hemmed in ostrich feathers, yellow plumage over a pale-green fisherman’s sweater, a superchic black coat of wool and leather over a tiny black skirt, an ivory jumpsuit dipped low in front exposing a black lace tank, a delicate white blouse with a bow paired with a tough high-waisted black leather shorts, and even the ever popular Nightingale bag that now comes as a trolley carry-on.
