These pieces by Givenchy for the Fall 08 collection may channel Mr. T a bit too close for comfort....I love them nonetheless. I have a certain infatuation with crosses...and a giant collection (look for an upcoming post!!) from all over the world that I've been gathering for years....that plays a part in my fondness for Riccardo Tisci's collection...I like the slight hint of a religious undertone these pieces portray...minorly controversial for such a politically correct society we live in now which is one of the most exciting elements of design. And of course I had to include the giant heart shaped brooch! I feel that brooches should make a comeback...and what better way to reinstate a somewhat old fashion item of jewelry than with a rocking heart....right on!
