Haute Couture Spring 2010: Givenchy, Jean Paul Gaultier, Valentino

Givenchy
Haute Couture Spring 2010


"I was scared of couture at the beginning, and reacted by staying away from looking at the past at all," Riccardo Tisci confessed before the show. "But now I'm more confident, I started looking into the archive, and found the idea of this strong, erotic phase of Parisian women I related to."

Riccardo Tisci work for Givenchy its absolutely remarkable, with each collection his flawless trailering and attention to detail is only becoming more pronounce. Everyone wants to know what he's thinking.

I so love the glam-rock electric blue and green mosaic-embellished jumpsuit, its a risk taking piece that will certainly look amazing in editorial work.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture Spring 2010



Jean Paul Gaultier went down Mexico way. All the way. He had a mariachi band. He had gauchos, sombreros, striped peasant blankets, Spanish shawls, and cigars. He had a conquistador moment and then he was into the jungle, weaving leaves with indigenous peoples.

ahhh I love Gaultier's collection so fun and lively, with incredibly funky tribal details. Just makes me wanna party on a beach. Can he ever go wrong !?! it would seem not.

Influenced by an exhibition about Moctezuma, the Aztec emperor, in London last year and side influence of Avatar's tribal-eco message.

Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2010



Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli created a Garden of Eden in cyberworld for their third Valentino couture show with a stunning tribal concept moulded into a new and futuristic style of draping and body-con.

I'm a huge fan of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Picciolis work for Valentino, they bring the fashion house a youthful and modern twist that is perfect in this time and age.

Each of their collections brings something new and exciting so I can't wait to see what they have some up with for the Valentino Fall 10 collection.
