Karim Sadli goes behind the scenes of Givenchy’s casting process for a special i-D story. The eclectic cast of boys chosen by Riccardo Tisci from his Givenchy F/W 11 menswear show cast by Daniel Peddle and Drew Dasent for Tisci’s menswear spectacular represents the brand’s unique aesthetic, mixing edgy and classic with ease. Simon Nessman, Rob Evans, Willy Cartier, Dominique Hollington, Paolo Roldan and Daphne Groeneveld all make special appearances.

    Great for Karim to get to shoot with Panos. I’m sure this must be a big opportunity for Karim.
    It’s nice.
