HAUTE COUTURE... GIVENCHY / Ricardo Tisci

I cannot claim to understand the inspiration nor the rendering of this collection by Ricardo Tisci for Givenchy. He has taken the brand to a direction, especially in couture, which I fail to comprehend beyond the labor intensive designs. These are not clothes; they seem to be “balls out” excruciatingly expensive costumes which bear no relation to a real life situation other than a costume party. According to the powers that be at Givenchy, their haute couture business is ‘way ahead” which I cannot explain under pain of death. My only question can be “where did it start from?”
