A Dark Beauty

Here are the images of the Givenchy Couture Fall 2010 collection by Riccardo Tisci.
I can't really express how beautiful I think these are-and all of the craftsmanship that went into them...amazing.

Some images from Day of the Dead celebrations that I thought were reminiscent of the collection

This collection was seemingly inspired by the human body (the skeleton in particular), as well as religion. In the NY Times and International Herald Tribune feature with Suzy Menkes Mr. Tisci describes why religion was such a crucial influence for the collectiona and shows the adorable Menkes some of the meticulous detailing on the dresses.
