I adore everything…except the hats x_x
I think they are kinda hard to understand…Im still on the fence about them….they kinda distract from gorgeous details on the dresses….
Funny, the influences here strike me as more Celtic/Nordic, of course using Asian models give the clothes a striking accent. Between this and the Armani collection there’s a good deal of invention going on.
The models look like they are inside a coffin.
This is only half! There’s such beautiful detailing on the back! check it out on style.com. Overall I think it’s a beautiful collection! The head pieces I’m still absorbing…
I just saw it! The neon yellow, pink and orange is PERFECTLY used here!! Im in awe!
Theres a second page to this post with the back detail
so beautiful, and all asian, AMAZING!!!
This is hilarious. And about as Asian as Rosie O’Donnell.
Details are INCREDIBLE. I love the Swans and feathers! Givenchy couture never disappoints me. Its always romantic and gothic. Those pink dresses are to die for. Dior and Givenchy always present best Couture!
It’s amazing, but it’s a bit too similar to their spring 2010 couture line. However, the back of each look is really incredible and Givenchy would always be my favorite fashion house.
They are ok, and it’s pretty similiar to the last one presentation in some ways. I think it’s funny how people say “you didn’t understand” the collection, just because you think it’s ugly. Don’t like it and the hats are awful.
this collection is amazing, i love riccardo tisci’s work… he has never disappointed me!
genuine works of art… I dare say that Tisci is the biggest coturier in these days.
Beautiful collection. People can say that it’s a bit similar to his previous work, but I think it’s still inventive and gorgeous. I love that it’s an all Asian cast of models too. Ai, Tao, Liu, Hye, Shu, Fei Fei, Du, and Hye are all some of my favorites!
Snap, that’s awesome, I only recognized Liu, Shu Pei, Fei Fei, Du, Ming, and Tao
Reminds me of Japanese cosplay.
hahah wigings’ hats?
you do mean *VIKING’S?..
I just love the entire cast of Asian models. It adds eccentricty to the already inspiring collection.
Those silly looking helmets are “Kabuto” influenced by traditional Samurai warrior head gear. But from the looks of this, they used a more Pop Culture approach and took inspiration from a 70′s robot anime series called Brave Raideen: http://media.animevice.com/uploads/0/74/52153-bf_vs__reideen_super.jpg / http://lpcoverlover.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/img_3511-498×500.jpg / http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfDcbXP-Bqo
The backs of the dresses are really the best part of the collection and I like the ridiculous hats, theatricality is always a good thing to me especially in couture.
i totally hope to see the third dress down in some actress at the oscars… THIS COLLECTION IS SPECTACULAR … the hats are just for representation of the inspiration… this will deffinitely be iconic for me forever
For me, it’s feel like “Kabuto suite” fusion with “Gundam mobile suit” transform to couture dresses. Incredible and amazing.
And that Asian power!! More that word for me.
The proportions of the hats are so exagerrated that it gives them more of an anime/manga feel than an actual samurai element. I agree with Skye Nicolas.
I am overwhelmed. Tisci is just a genius. The headpieces add a sense of fun, but it is all about the beautifully detailed looks. I love the cast – seeing Du Juan is always a treat and she has one of the best looks too! Ming’s is my other favorite.
Funny how the fluffyness doesn’t bother me here as in the pref-all. I think the color helps – more evocative of a swan than a muppet.
Thank you Tisci, just thank you.
the dresses are amazing but the helmets are stupid and unnecessary
Absolutely agree on the Viking front!
love the structure, pure art
Does anyone else see the McQueen influence here? Reminds me of his last collection, including the kitschy headwear and the way the collection’s photographed…
a lot of those dresses look the same or almost the same. still like every single one of them, though
The best Haute couture collection this season, my favorites are the first yellow dress on Fei Fei, and the second with the yellow hat…. Oscar’s red carpet material
im in love. this is so beautiful. truly couture work
I could do without the headpieces – but my word, those dresses are DIVINE.
