Givenchy

Autumn-Winter 2011/12 - The models entered the catwalk through an arch of blood red roses sporting a rather frightening yet innocent look of the soft drapery of a shirt and shorts combo with images of angry Rottweiler’s emblazoned across the bottom. Riccardo Tisci combined the beauty of perfectly tailored soft suit jackets and well-fitting shirts with rather harsh ugly knee high lace up boots and sadomasochistic belts that looked like leather leashes. There was an animalistic tone in his schoolboy caps with what looked like ears and scarves bearing teeth and skeletal prints tied around mouths almost like a threatening muzzle. He aimed to shock with leather jackets with fur lined hoods with what looks like a harness buckle to fasten it, collars with metal embellishment and full length pleated black skirts. In all, a break in the convention of conformity.
