Givenchy's Delicate Fall 2010 Anatomy Lesson

Riccardo Tisci's Fall Couture show in Paris earlier this month was an exercise of art and passion. The intricately embroidered pieces took their muse of artist Frida Kahlo, bones and the Mexican holiday of Day of the Dead.

It was a small collection of only ten looks, but the stuffy fashion press couldn't stop gushing... The International Herald Tribune, "Frida Kahlo and Mexico’s Day of the Dead — hit a chord of memento mori.” The Daily Front Row called it “Nothing short of spectacular.”

The feminine transparent pieces mixed delicate Chantilly lace and ostrich feathers. Upon closer inspection, the hand-embroidered motifs were revealed to be skulls of exquisite elegance.
