Givenchy 2012 Pre Fall

For those of you who don't know... I am in awe of Riccardo Tisci. There is not a season that goes by that I am not happily sucked into his Catholic Gothic fairy tales. I want to go wherever he is willing to take me. The Givenchy 2012 Pre Fall collection, shot outside on the streets of New York, was full of structured silhouettes. I love jackets and coats with a tough, androgynous feel. It's impossible to put on a coat like this and not feel strong, not feel like you can take on the day. This collection also featured a beige on cream lace like print transformed into soft, but serious looking dresses. I thought to myself, "Where could I go in this dress?" Dinner along the Champs-Elysees?
