Givenchy, Spring/Summer '09 (scroll down to read the review)
Italian-born designer Riccardo Tisci is well underway in creating a passionate following for his darkly romantic, sexually alert clothes. And spring promises more of his popular skinny pants, married with strong shouldered belted jackets and prize blouses.
For evening try those leggings, some emblazoned with fire flame like white patterns with cut-out leather bondage tops. Stonewashed denim was cut into roll arm t-styles worn with black leather gilets and jeans, while crystal embellished his John Wayne-worthy cowboy capes and draped jersey mini dresses, which with their high necks were anything but slutty.
