Paris: The most exciting designers are the ones who know when to do an about face and Ricardo Tisci of allover print fame, has done just that for Spring. Solid icy pastels, shimmery blacks and light iridescent sea greens set a vaguely oceanic message down the runways, but the effect was sleeker and sharper than one would normally expect with a such a nature-based theme. Instead Tisci veered towards the sleek and sculpted, and the oversized sharktooth pendants echoed the gill-like laser cut leather and the tail-like jackets. A luxurious use of a whole range of exotics including eel, shark, stingray, python added the just the right touch of elegant edge that fans of Givenchy have come to expect.  —Shannon Davenport
