As Beautiful Coming As Going. The Givenchy A/W 2012-13 Haute Couture Collection.

2012-13 Givenchy Couture Collection

The Autumn Winter 2012-13 Givenchy Couture Collection by Riccardo Tisci consisted of only 10 designs. But those ten designs are absolutely jaw-dropping with their impeccable detailing and craftsmanship.

2012-13 Givenchy Couture Collection

This collection is one of the most impressive feats of craftsmanship in clothing design as we’ve ever seen. The handling of the materials and the complicated detailing is extraordinary. And never at the expense of flattering the female form.

Mixing elegant feminine silhouettes reminiscent of the 60s combined with the opulence of Gypsy-like capes, elaborate trimmings and edgings, Tisci has created pieces with as much attention to the rear view as the front view.


Each element is laden with complicated handiwork: beading, fringe, basketweave-woven leather, even mink – sheared, shaved and cut out to resemble embroidery and as trim. I can’t do the collection justice with words. Just look at the breathtaking photos from the collection’s debut in Paris.
