GIVENCHY HOMME 2009
If the GIVENCHY HOMME debut for Spring/Summer 2009 doesn't inspire you, nothing will!
When I saw the pics from the Paris show, It immediatley got me singing "Girls & Boys" by Blur...
"Girls who are boys
Who like boys to be girls
Who do boys like they're girls
Who do girls like they're boys
Always should be someone you really love"
But seriously, The Givenchy Homme show was a standout for many fashionistas (both men and women).
This collection was a first for Riccardo Tisci who has been heading Givenchy's women line for sometime now.
Riccardo Tisci is an unassuming anti-hero who makes heroic, powerful looks that still retain an all-encompassing aura of elegance - a concept absolutely central to the house of Givenchy. Let’s not forget, after all the stop-starts with other previous designers, he is making the label pop. Now, in a hugely significant step, he’s brought his talent to Givenchy menswear, meaning he’s one of the few designers responsible for both women’s AND men’s rtw at an iconic brand, as well as haute couture. - PONYSTEP.COM
“I am not looking to dress men as women,” Tisci continues, “but rather offer them a viable wardrobe that serves them equally well in any situation: classic suits that seem to have come straight from the atelier of a traditional Neapolitan tailor, as well as T-shirts and leather trousers for the weekend.” A wardrobe for men “whose beauty has a hint of menace”. - GIVENCHY.COM
