Givenchy
Showing his spring collection for Givenchy Sunday in the Jardin des Plantes in the 5th arrondissement, Riccardo Tisci was making the connection between inspiration and location — not to mention giving guests a delightfully calming show experience in the brisk autumn air (foil blankets for all!). He made a major jewelry statement with oversize agate slices, which were also prints on dresses. Some versions of this pendant came with a leather pouch attachment to carry essentials like lipstick/cash/key, which is shaping up as a trend on the Paris runways.
