Givenchy’s collection was inspired by generous and chandelier-like 1920 jewellery, which it humorously hijacked by creating giant nose rings, clipped between the nostrils. Contrary to the pinks and lime washes of previous seasons, the palette exclusively contained black, white and chocolate brown. Tisci picked up his own classics – stars, conductor’s jackets, and the more recent spikes, applying them on individually sewn alligator and skin scale, embroidered chiffon and silk, and Swarovski-encrusted racer-back dresses.

More 20s references were made, such as wide blouses with sewn-on, beaded collars, retro-futuristic brooches and ultra-wide leg trousers. Yet this was deeply rooted in 2012, as Tisci merged those with contemporary references: a basketball here, a giant zip there, and purposely unwearable shoes gave a post-modern wink to an otherwise classic collection.
