givenchy s/s 2011 couture

leeloo dallas multi-pass! that’s the first thing i thought when i saw the givenchy spring couture collection. the design detail & tailoring is simply astounding.

One outfit required 2,000 hours of cutting and 4,000 hours of sewing. A single pair of trousers had 90 meters of plissé. On this scale, appreciation of the clothes as they solemnly rotated from hangers in a reverentially hushed salon on the Place Vendôme became an almost academic exercise, like examining works of art in a gallery.
