Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci showed his spring 2011 couture collection in an intimate presentation held in a cozy but fancy salon for the comfort of his clients.

This season's ten-dress collection was inspired by Japanese Butoh dancer Kazuo Ohno and shown on an entirely Asian cast. The headpieces, which no couture-wearing woman should be without, to be sure, came from Japanese Goldrake robots.
