givenchy magnifique

Inspired by Butoh–an experimental and subversive dance featuring extremes movements and broaching taboo subjects–and the dancer Kazuo Ohno, its most prominent practitioner, the collection was displayed on hanging mannequins . It was an elegant mix of extreme softness–chiffon in white and pale yellow–and the hard plastics of Gundman robots in Japanese animation. Several of the dresses featured a motif of embroidered cranes. In Asian cultures, white cranes symbolize longevity. (Mickel Kalalo)
