Editor’s Choice: Riccardo Tisci shows what he is made of and takes Givenchy to the TOP.October 3rd, 2011 by Hotel Fashionland received Comments Off
Watching Tisci’s tour-de-force spring-summer 2012 collection Sunday, you were reminded of the enormity of his gift and all the reasons why he’d be a leading contender for fashion’s top job — the coveted Dior post. A (figuratively) heavyweight cast of top models, including Gisele Bundchen, who rarely graces runways with her presence —streaked down the catwalk in elaborate pant-and skirt-suits elevated from business staples into the realm of the extraordinary by tails, flouncy peplums and sculptural panels that cascaded down from the neckline. After John Galliano was sacked from his job as creative director of Dior, the fashion world was abuzz with rumors about who might replace him. One of the names that surfaced with most insistence was Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, whose dark, dangerous aesthetic had won him considerable critical praise and a devoted fan base.
There was a suit for every taste and body shape, with long jackets or shrunken jackets, second-skin pants, high-rise shorts or multi layered skirts with see-through paneling in tan, powder pink, khaki with leopard print detailing or in shimmering silver and gold sequins. Source: AP
