With Twitterverse and our little friend WWW abuzz with the news that Tisci will officially be taking over the helms at Dior (I know I have been dying, for better use of generic fashion word, to know who will be replacing Galliano), I can't help but wonder how my significant other Givenchy will fare without Riccardo.
That aside, I think Tisci's romantic gothicism could be translated well into the Dior brand, although I still think Galliano's flamboyant self was a nearly perfect fit. Tisci has proved his hand at couture many times over as well, so taking the reins at such a huge empire should not be a problem, and considering the fact that Dior is big on the accessories, I'm sure he can come up with a Nightingale equivalent for the house.
If rumours are the thing to go by, Haider Ackermann will probably replace Tisci at Givenchy. Ackermann has been on my 'Designers I Love' list for quite a while now, so no worries there.
Still, my heart weeps over what will be the end of a glorious era at Givenchy. Now excuse me while I go through all those past beauties on style.com and drown my Macbook Pro in tears.
How could I have missed the start of Resort collections?
Truth be told, I always do (same for Pre-Fall) but this time I actually had the legitimate excuse of interning full-time and just about being able to squeeze in a shower and a morning coffee.
On to the more important things in life (fashion!), I myself am a bit of a floral-shy girl, save for the odd vintage piece in my closet, but if there were anybody that could turn me it would be Erdem Moralioglu .
His lace and florals are so stunningly beautiful but at the same time vastly intriguing. There is always that hint of something different underneath the 'prim and proper' exterior. Or maybe I just love the succulent colours. And anyone who collaborates with Nicholas Kirkwood on shoes every season gets an A++ in my book
