Riccardo Tisci will continue his reign at Givenchy. Givenchy extended Tisci’s contract for another three years showing faith in the creative director’s vision, designs, and business plans.
The creative director of the French label has spent a long time making its debut scent Dahlia Noir. The dark and mysterious fragrance is perfect for Fall/Winter 12, when gothic looks are going to be big business.
The Givenchy creative director has been at the helm at one of the world’s most respected fashion labels since 2005. He has previously joked that he has single-handedly changed the fortune of the company, but little about his character is known.
Inspired by the clean lines of Hubert de Givenchy’s 60s dresses and the bohemes of modern-day southern Italy, aesthetically, this haute capsule asks for no leniency from its public – it’s severe, for sure, or in layman’s terms – a lot of look, but the craft has never looked more sublime. In truth, this is an Italian tree-hugger only Tisci could fashion into real world existence.
With Tisci’s help, Couture has its bite back, and pre-fall–usually a collection of basics used by retailers to freshen up the floor–is now a veritable space for new, interesting and bold design.
After so much talk and all the rumors, the first image from Givenchy’s spring 2012 campaign has finally washed on shore.
After designing the cover for the album’s first outing, ‘H.A.M’, in 2010, Riccardo Tisci chose to create this new artwork to celebrate one of the biggest joint efforts in music history.
