Ricardo Tisci (creative director of Givenchy) designed some amazing pieces for men around the world who want to look classy and stylish this upcoming fall and winter. There were some surprising turns in Friday's installment of Paris Fashion Week's menswear shows-Givenchy's normally sports-obsessed Riccardo Tisci went the other way, buckling up and going dapper. Here are the highlights of the fall-winter 2016-17 shows.
For the F/W 2016-17 Givenchy collection Riccardo Tisci explores his typical style through the lens of the world of the cowboy. Slim fit suits and double-breasted coats alternate with intarsia bomber jackets. Layering is the collection's common thread, while the slim cut pants are worn with velvet cowboy boots. Riccardo Tisci's denim is covered in studs and semiprecious stones that characterize the denim fabric jumpsuit, while the straight-leg pants are worn with slip on shoes and velvet boots.
Belts with large studded belt buckles, scarves with the American flag printed on them, leather shoes, velvet boots and sneakers, gloves made with technical fabric and crocodile skin.
In an intimate setting with neon lights and a snaking runway, Riccardo Tisci presented one of his most wearable - and dapper- Givenchy collections to date. There was less of a focus than normal in the creative pot and less intellectual musing - but this didn't seem to matter. The clothes spoke for themselves.
The Italian-born designer mixed up and successfully merged styles as diverse as Texan shirts, boots and belt buckles, Savile Row-style tailored suits, sporty hoodies, croc insets, Arab stone inlay-effects, and the random image of a cobra that cropped up aggressively on stylish silken bomber jackets and sweaters.
