Show Review: Givenchy Spring 2013
By Claire

For the past few seasons, Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy has offered the utmost restraint. Eschewing the barking dogs, growling panthers, and kaleidescopic patterns of seasons past, he’s been more brooding, sticking to simple silhouettes, only uplifted, as we saw last spring, by the occasional peplum. For Spring 2013 he continued his toned down trend, accentuating refined pieces with organza ruffles on necklines and sleeves.

Apparently influenced by his Catholic upbringing, Tisci offered stiff Bishop’s collars in gleaming silver, high necklines, and demure hems. The Spring 2013 woman isn’t overtly sexy or flashy–jackets are oversized; dresses form skimming.

Working with a color palette of white, black, gray, and touches of baby blue allowed spectators to focus on the construction–the train attached by golden clips to a knee length skirt, sheer panels on a bell sleeved blouse, and the embroidery on a cinched waist jacket.

Curved heeled sandals accented by gold and plexi pieces offered just a soupcon of sensuality.

Fashion Bomb celebs, who tend to go for saucier red carpet choices, won’t find a ton to love in this collection, though I could see Rihanna, Lala, or Kim Kardashian in any of the sultrier options, particularly the black sheer sleeved blouse and a white one shouldered blouse worn with black pants.

The separates, particularly the pencil skirts, tailored blazers, tuxedo trousers, and white blouses, could fit seamlessly into any wardrobe no matter the season.

What do you think of Givenchy’s Spring 2013 show?

    The poor model’s toes are gripping on to that shoe for dear life, lol. But I do like the shoes though they seem tough to wear.

    I like it. I dig his interpretation of the high low skirt, it was a decent collection. We definitely know what the call out will be for spring; ruffles ruffles everywhere!
