Even from my pathetic little corner in the online fashion world, I can see it. It was just one of those shows that will be talked about until the next fashion month. One of those shows with the perfect array of models, one of those shows opened by Natalia Vodianova and closed by Gisele Bundchen.
Inspired by mermaids and surfers (visible in shark-tooth necklaces, scale-like sequins and skirts with considerably longer sides, like mermaid tails), the collection had the kind of superfluous greatness that simply allows one to "enjoy the show", because the pieces are so good, they don't require extra attention.
Sure, we could drool just about all day long over those perfectly-cut, perfectly colored vests and blazers, but then we might miss the ankle-length pants which were just the perfect amount of "tight".
The shinier-than-thou (ha!) trend didn't skip the Givenchy runway, but in a particularly impressive fixing-up of sequins, their fluidity reminiscent of the scales on a mermaid's tail.
To conclude, Riccardo Tisci has managed to deliver one of those stop-and-stare shows, and after you stop and stare, you make a small sound of yearning. I foresee all those glorious garments flying off the racks and into the closets of cool girls, rock chicks and business women alike.
