Frida Kahlo, whom I have mentioned before on my blog, is a famous Mexican artista who used traditional Mexican bright colors and folk art to inspire her artistic creations of shocking images of her life. Taking cues from Kahlo, Tisci has replaced the Mexican bright colors with bright tones of gold.
Additionally, the silhouettes of this seasons Givenchy dresses are reminiscent of Mexico's day of the dead figurine known as the Catrina. The Catrina is a skeleton body symbolizing death, however she is always adorned in fancy attire symbolizing that even those with enough money to wear high fashion items are just as susceptible to death. I think it is kind of erie but fascinating at the same time. Inspired by this idea, Tisci's entire collection is adorned with lace, gold and more gold with skeletons poppping iup througout hte collection as they were embroidered on garments throughout the collection. As Tisci put it best, "the collection repreesnts a romantic way to see death".
I look forward to seeing the trends that are inspired by this collection as I think the combination of lace and skeletons done correclty would be amazing.
