Givenchy: Out of the Darkness

It’s a new day, it’s a new dawn, it’s a new approach to Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy. The Italian designers is infamous for his dark romanticism which has become part of the Givenchy DNA.

Renowned for his sporty style and collaborations with Nike to create a capsule of Air Force 1 shoes — his main influence for A/W 17 was America, but with a twist — looking at it through the “through the eyes of a child,” Tisci said.

Confident tailored suits with tribal details and stripes (another motif of the house). Vibrant and confident silhouettes unlike America’s politics as of the moment: “For nine years as a designer, I did darkness. I’ve just come out of that.”

Cartoon sketch characters which was reminiscent of the happier America; Dennis the Menace infused with Aztec shapes in primary colours (perhaps, subtle reference to the American flag?). Tisci’s optimistic outlook was, “to see things positively for the future.”

In Givenchy fashion, Tisci showcased the house’s couture looks with his favourite shapes and colours: fringes, the le-pouf, murky violet and midnight black on his muses: Blanca Padilla, Yasmin Wijnaldum and Mariacarla Boscono.

Tisci described the show as his most serene — is this this his farewell as creative director of Givenchy and a hint at his next move, maybe at Versace (if the rumours are true).
