Paris: Bleached brows and bustiers made for a sexy ‘Tyrolean meets rock ‘n’ roll’ look at Givenchy as Riccardo Tisci went hell for leather quite literally. Lacy overlays, lacing, studs and grommets were just a few of the elements that made up the intricately crafted pieces sent down the catwalk. There was little need for colour with a collection so detailed, so Tisci stayed true to his favoured natural colour palette, restrained to white, black and chestnut brown. Cropped and fitted skirts were worn with thigh-high leather boots and slim-cut souvenir jackets offered a welcome heaviness. This was a stellar collection that will no doubt influence wider commercial trends to come. –Elle Hankinson
