As soon as I saw this image of Givenchy's Fall 2011 Couture Collection I tried to take in all the beauty of the intricate looks, but my eyes went straight to the fringed clutch bags. They reminded me straight away of a Fendi bag I have longed for since I watched Carrie parade around with
Back to the clothes. While this collection is similar to Riccardo Tisci's last collection for Givenchy Couture, inspired by birds, origami and warriors (which Cate Blanchett, Florence Welch and Liv Tyler were all spotted in), the Fall 2011 collection has such an angelic, gilded, sophisticated edge to it I've completely fallen for it. It's so beautiful and embodies what Haute Couture is truly about. I don't even want to think of the amount of man hours that went into each and every last stitch.
I'll be bringing you more from Paris Couture Fashion Week soon, including the always beautiful Elie Saab collection.
