Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear Collection

by Alexander Patino

Fashion’s favorite bad-boy, Riccardo Tisci, bequeathed the Givenchy woman with a ferocious growl to complement the large bite his men served for fall 2011. Sporting cat-eared hats, baseball jackets in lux materials, his signature sheer tulle skirts and an array of prints that work together to form the ultimate trompe l’oeil effect of posies morphing into a pack of panthers, the world’s youngest couturier pulled the rug under anyone watching, and fed us to the dogs. Scratch that – cats.
