as i wrote in june, givenchy has opted to showcase its couture collections in exclusive installations and presentations. thanks to promotional photographs, we can still enjoy the fall 2010 couture collection.
the looks wholly embody designer riccardo tisci's gothic style, with suggestions to the human skeleton in both construction and detailing, like zippers resembling bones. tisci states his inspiration was frida kahlo and the three themes of much of her work: religion, sensuality, and the female body.
