Givenchy Fall 2006 Couture

Riccardo Tisci is new to Givenchy and to the Couture. He seems to be trying a taste of this and of that, and getting his feet wet in an interesting, yet not completely coherent collection. His trials of the technical skills of his house are quite impressive, and it will be very interesting to see to what use he puts them in future collections.

Some interesting seaming and pleat details on a fairly classic suit.

A little homage to "old" Givenchy in this silhouette.

And even more in this fur-collared velvet belted cape.

An interesting jacket with piped tucks, sequined sleeves on the top, and interesting seaming on the pants.

Highly textured knitted sleeves under this cape-top coatdress.

Mink shearling as tortoise shell "armor".

A very unusual leather dress.

Here's the "editorial" piece of the show, and it is unusual, and very intriguing. It appears to be a very soft leather, or possibly a felt. Close up below.

Very Art Deco.

Here's a complete departure in style, and with the juxtaposition of leather and chiffon, it does run the gamut.

Very sculptural.
