Riccardo Tisci’s playful styling. But is it Givenchy?

July 15, 2013

I should’ve written this review of Ricardo Tisci’s Autumn/Winter menswear collection for Givenchy a while ago.  It doesn’t help that I keep changing my opinion on the clothes shown.  There’s a lot here to like, but too many question marks.  Street clothing versus High Fashion?  Good taste versus bad?   Oh, and leather shorts – my […]

Amanda Seyfried replaces Liv Tyler as face of Givenchy’s "Very Irresistable"

May 2, 2013

Lovely Liv Tyler has been replaced as the face of Parfums Givenchy’s ‘Very Irresistable’ by actress, Amanda Seyfried. She may irritate as many as she delights with her singing in movies such as Mama Mia and Les Miserables, but she’s clearly a popular choice. And, if truth be told, fits the brand’s fragrance and image […]

Givenchy’s Post Modern Bohemian Gypsy Dream for A/W’13

March 4, 2013

Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy keeps everything just so, so right and modern that it re-establishes a person’s faith in fashion, beauty, energy and ideas. Tisci neither labours the point, sucks the humour out of a joyous industry by over seriousness nor leaps to fantasy so over-wrought it’s deemed unwearable. What Tisci does is create beautiful […]

Victoria Beckham’s A/W’13 collection – Don’t Believe The Hype

February 11, 2013

There’s a lot of hype about Victoria Beckham and I’m not buying into it.  If truth be told, the label has developed hundredfold in popularity in part due to the global tsunami that is Brand Beckham and, largely due to the unassailable, untouchable nature of this new ‘national treasure’. Hell, if she’s successful and famous […]

Fyodor Golan’s myriad influences for S/S’13

October 4, 2012

The spectre of Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy looms large over London – as well it should, and I’m not just talking about the surfeit of Birds of Paradise prints dotting the show audiences. Let’s face it; Tisci is The Daddy at the moment, so it’s no surprise that some up-and-coming designers may look to him for […]

Givenchy’s Dahlia Noir captures the vision of Riccardo Tisci

September 29, 2012

I don’t know why I’m surprised that I like Givenchy’s ‘Dahlia Noir’ quite so much. I guess it’s because when a huge and influential brand launches a new fragrance, we expect that it will appeal to the masses and, in doing so, loses some of its power, influence and affect. After all, there’s big money […]

Givenchy’s A/W’12 Advertising Campaign & Resort ’13 Collection

June 24, 2012

He can do no wrong in my book. Since Riccardo Tisci took over the helm at Givenchy, the house’s radical change in direction to multo chic, slick, modernist urban has made me salivate at every single collection. These are the clothes I want to wear: the sarouel cut of trousers with dropped crotch and skinny […]
