Couture Fall '09-Givenchy

Well, I've just given up on fantastical couture because it's quite clear that it's totally dated and a stupid notion to hold dear. Ho hum. Well, on with Givenchy. I'll say one thing-it was short. Couture is basically a synonym for exclusive, so a forty-something long collection seems a bit of an oxymoron to me. So five stars to Tisci for that aspect at least.

Clothes-wise, it was a bit kooky, I suppose, and I remain indifferent. Some nice features but definitely not enough to persuade me to put 10 pictures up as I have with the other shows. I liked the long veils and the hoods a lot, they were pretty cool, but weird face-jewellery? Can't see that one catching on anytime soon.
