Golly, I really didn’t expect much from Givenchy this season, so to get a Spring 2015 Collection so striking felt like a true present! Riccardo Tisci hasn’t wowed me in a while, and his relentless love of the Kardashians has me to the point of nausea. In other words, I kind of wrote off Givenchy guys. I mean, sure, recently I’ve had a bit of a love affair with their makeup collection and I will ALWAYS love their jewelry, but as far as premiere fashions, I’ve taken a bit of a pass.
I guess the minute you don’t expect something great, is the moment when it will appear. Sort of like the theory of a watch pot never boils. I’ve been watching Givenchy for a while now – and trust me, it hasn’t exactly boiled. Now, the moment I step away: it’s boiling over! Studded, Western heat!
And so, while I REALLY ought to be getting ready for bed and a brand new work week to begin, here I am salivating over boots, necklines, studs and leather. Go figure!
So, let’s just acknowledge this for the greatness it is – and then stop watching while Tisci pimps out Kardashians from here until the Fall 2015 runways. K? K.
