Today’s color palette is inspired by Givenchy’s Spring 2012 Couture.
Tisci said his two inspirations this season were the 1927 Fritz Lang movie Metropolis and the theme music from a more obscure Russian film, 1924’s Aelita: Queen of Mars (add that one to your Netflix queue, pronto). You could see their influence most clearly in the Art Deco embellishments on the dresses in the crystal room. The designer also pointed out the parallels between Lang’s high-city/low-city film and his own bejeweled gowns worn over workmen’s tank tops. In fact, the tanks weren’t as proletarian as all that, coming as they did in a cashmere blend. - via style.com
