Deeming oneself a pupil of the Givenchy aesthetic isn't too far-fetched: the iconic brand has a rich and storied history with lots to dig into and uncover. Riccardo Tisci's Spring collection harked back to a decade ago when he was first installed at the fashion house: a time when he wasn't worshiped the way he is now and when he had an equal amount of cynics and aficionados. Leather, an abundance of crosses, a rock and roll spirit, and loads of lace were all brimming over in the assortment - all Tisci signatures.

A dangerous and fierce group of sirens stomped down the runway, strapped into edgy leather trousers, boudoir-ready corsets, and pants designed with absolutely no wiggle room. Sexy open-toe, thigh-high boots anchored the looks. The color palette was pretty much exclusively black: in true Givenchy fashion.

Naturally, the models made it look convincing and effortless - not the same kind of ease that would come freely to the average woman. And though the brand has become a household name, dressing the average woman isn't what Tisci had in mind.

Though the palette was dark and romantic, there were some delicate moments with corset bodices giving way to lace flare skirts, bejeweled collars, frothy white lace mini skirts, and a blush pink pleated dress with a plunging neckline and flirty ruffle detailing. A lace and drawstring accented LBD was red carpet ready, while a poet sleeve frock fell languidly off the shoulders with grace and precision. A black and white embroidered collarless jacket and playsuit combination was the perfect blend of flirt and sex appeal.
