Givenchy Men’s: Man-Skirts and Voodoo Makeup

January 24, 2015 - fall Denim

PARIS — No one loves philharmonic utterly like Riccardo Tisci. Today’s Givenchy show was strenuous before it even started. Noomi Rapace entered a large exhilarated tent (erected in a shade of Napoleon’s grand tomb of Invalides) to blinding paparazzi flashes. Inside, a runway of red shine looped around incompatible chairs, chaise lounges, and adequate antique brick-a-brac to fill a brocante. The clothes, similarly, were congested with ideas.

Tisci sent out a sum of 60 looks — including some from women’s pre-fall — modeled by residence muses like Jamie Bochert. The uncover began as a somber, all-black-suiting affair. Was Tisci going sedate? Then a floodgates detonate open, releasing raccoon tails, a accumulation of man-skirts (including a weave one that buttoned down a front like a cardigan), sweatshirts (which seem to be a new bread-and-butter of a brand), and geometric patterned all-over-print suits. There were straight pinstripes, plane stripes, bronze lead shirts with relating ties, elementary nap coats with leather appliqués, and denim. The list goes on and on, like a grill with a menu so outrageous we have no idea what to order. The preference was a extended buckshot blast, so dizzyingly sundry that it was satisfying.

Tisci pushes a garments so distant that a makeup and appendage choices can be a bit most and confuse from a always-stellar casting. For each men’s uncover given a open of 2014, there has been some differing develop — colored Band-Aid-like glue strips, nets over faces, do-rags. This season, as with a clothes, he went whole hog, with chola separate curls, full spell face paint, glued-on jewels, and mouth piercings. But all of this is where a beauty of Tisci’s work lies. It was a showy prophesy that can’t be tamed.
