When you put studs and feathers together, you get Givenchy’s 2009 Ready-to-wear collection. Riccardo Tisci gave a new edge to high fashion bondage by adding in elements like feathers, pleats and fabric covered beads. Drapey fabrics and structured shoulders give this collection a more 3-dimensional look to what would normally be just an hourglass silhouette.

This is my favourite outfit in the entire show. Oversized chains, check. Feathered shoes, check. Long one-sleeved fishnet dress, check.

Some familiar details from what we’ve seen over at Stylebubble and Outsapop, the fabric bubble detail can also be seen in Givency’s collection

And then there are shoes. The feathers make for extremely impractical details for daily wear but… the irrational part in our heads just wants them so bad.
