I THINK I’M TURNING JAPANESE

For his couture collection for Givenchy this season, designer Riccardo Tisci was inspired by the recent passing of founding father of Japanese Butoh, dancer Kazuo Ohno.  Ohno’s haunting grace was transformed into a series of pale gowns, intricately adorned with pearls, beads, and wing motifs.  The backs of each garment revealed a shocking swath of neon (visible at the shoulders on some pieces), and outsize sci-fi headgear gave the collection a futuristic undertone.
