A knock out or knocked out at Givenchy



I didn't know what to make of Riccardo Tisci's collection for Givenchys men Spring/Summer '09. It seemed that they were outfit a boxer would wear from the 1920's. There was a lot of oversized tops and sleeveless shirts, which were fine, in fact they seemed very urban and youthful; the type of top you would normally see on people like 50 Cent or Eminem. My biggest problem had to be the pants. For some reason, Tisci kept sending down shorts that had men's tights underneath. The weirdest part were the shorts were above the knee while the tights were below the knee. I've seen a lot of clever forms of layering, but this collection took it to a whole new level - a level I don't think it should have gone to. If you completely judge this collection from the waist up, it was great. But from the waist down, it was a trainwreck. Watch the show for yourself and tell me what you think.

  1. Hi Nice Blog .In this, the body is studied by regions rather than by organs. This is of importance to the surgeon who exposes different planes after the skin incision and who, of course, must be perfectly familiar with structures as he explores the limbs and Knee cavities.
