something old, something new

once again, riccardo tisci did not dissappoint.
remember the petals strewn all over givenchy's spring 09 runway ? and the nude palette that abounded, putting emphasis on the designer's perfected structure and shape tactics ? this time around, the gowns were just as exquisite, though more uniquely appealing - each piece looks like it could be its own collection, not necessarely an integrative part of the whole show - keeping with the intrigue and anticipation that is far too often a rarity when it comes to fashion week shows .
sarah mower of style.com stated in her runway review : "if tisci's thought process sometimes lacks coherence, he is still a designer bringing a much-needed sense of modernity to an old tradition" .
and you gotta love him for it .
