Runway Recap: Givenchy Spring 2012


Inspiration Although Riccardo Tisci claimed he was inspired by mermaids and surfers, Givenchy's Spring 2012 RTW collection was way more tailored than laid back. With strong, tough elements, you could have told us he was inspired by a shark.

Top Trends Skin-tight pants paired with structured pieces that were a little longer over the booty strutted down the runway next to swirly jackets. And it worked.

Accessories Speaking of shark inspiration, did we mention the shark-tooth heels? Yeah, that happened.  Oh, and oversized shark teeth worn on necklaces? Ditto.

Favorite Looks The head-to-toe sequined suit was truly stunning and made us wish it was acceptable to dress like we were at Studio 54 all day every day.

Thoughts The use of eel skin, shark and stingray as accents made for unexpectedly awesome focal points. All of the looks on Givenchy's runway were pretty much flawless.

Most Wanted: November
