givenchy's japanese-inspired hate couture collection


This week in Paris, Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci introduced his Japanese-influenced Spring/Summer 2011 Haute Couture collection -- using exclusively Asian models: Givenchy Uses Only Asian Models At Haute Couture Show.

According to Givenchy's press release, the collection draws its primary inspiration from Japan, including Butoh dancers, cranes, and even Gundam fighters. Lots more photos from collection over at Huffington Post.

Maybe it's just me, but those hats kind of remind me of Galactus, the planet devourer. Comic book geeks, are you with me? (Thanks, Tamlyn.)
