Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Pre-Fall 2013 Collection
Reason #389 I Wish I Was A Man: Hey look, it’s that dog again, but different! More prim and dandy, this is like The Beatles meets fucking Oasis and makes fashion instead of music together. infusing his iconic aesthetic for the French house with a motorcycle motif, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci gravitates towards prints, contrasted fabrics and impeccable cuts for a strong pre-season showing. Elongating silhouettes and embracing smart layers, tailored suits of moleskin, velvet, wool and satin are juxtaposed with sportier pieces that expose the label’s streetwear appeal. Dressed with stars, stripes, studs and argyle, the collection maintains a graphic nature, further highlighted by checks and a combination of workerwear-inspired cuts and cheeky accents. Fuck, it’s so good.
