Givenchy's Show Invitation
In Menswear Confidential, top designers share the visual references and making-of stories behind their latest collections
Riccardo Tisci : In today's society, there are many restraints. I have been attracted to the circus because it portrays the freedom to express oneself, to be who you are, or who you want to be. After five years as artistic director at Givenchy
I am showing on the runway my circus, my family, my casting, my gang. The collection is based on eccentricity, such as a circus symbolises. The looks are about elegance and classic tailoring. The lace for romanticism, the leopard print for sensuality. These are all codes of my Givenchy world.
