Givenchy's autumn/winter collection was, I have to admit, pretty amazing. It reminds me of M.I.A's XXXO video clip which was so rad. I think the only downer on this collection was the lack of diversity in their models. Personally, it made it a bit flat. And I think it would've added something really special to the richness of their designs. Such a shame. Moving on.
Vivienne Westwood's collection is awesome as usual. Didn't really expect anything else from her. The inspiration for the collection was The World Wide Woman. According to the show notes, her muse is a bastion of culture and a tower of strength. Givenchy could learn a thing or two from Vivienne Westwood in regards to selecting models but saying this - it still would have been nice to have seen some models varying in size.
Teagle is a terrific artist from the UK who has just made two new zines which you can buy from his website jackteagle.
Hope you have a lovely day,
