Bloodline

June 26th, 2015 |Posted by steven.yatsko

For the Givenchy Fall Winter 2015 campaign Riccardo Tisci kept it in the “just-about” family and when Donatella Versace’s presence was revealed in a preview with Tisci himself and Donatella, it nearly turned the internet upside down. It’s one thing for a designer to be in their own campaign, but including a rival fashion house… In response Tisci has said he considers the Italian empress family and both feel there should be more support within the industry. The brood also features Frankie Rayder, the face of the brand in 1999, amongst the company of Ricardo favorites like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Stella Lucia clad in Givenchy. The styling by Carine Roitfeld  is complete with all of Tisci’s subverting calling cards: facial jewelry and septum rings, gothic ornament and severe silhouettes. The familial casting was photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott set in the mileu of what could be imagined as their opulent estate. An accompanying campaign video has the stony-faced clan entertaining themselves in the sizable set.

Family Ties

June 17th, 2014 |Posted by Janelle

Riccardo Tisci‘s ads for Givenchy have long relied on a familiar theme – family, namely those fashionable characters Tisci counts amongst his band of Givenchy loyalists. As such you’ll always see familiar faces like Mariacarla Boscono, Jamie Bochert and Julia Nobis in the mix of a Tisci campaign alongside fresh Tisci approved faces like show opener Veroniek Gielkens, new face Alessio Pozzi and the buzzed about Kendall Jenner. This season the campaign’s lineup even includes a select number of stars whose lineage makes them fashion royalty – Stephanie Seymour‘s handsome son, Peter Brant Jr. makes his campaign debut in Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott (Art Partner)’s sleek imagery. With more images set to debut soon only time will tell how many will feature in this seasonal family reunion.

El Bambi

October 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Never underestimate the power of a well placed bit of cartoon magic; each season Riccardo Tisci comes up with at least one Givenchy must have that makes a splash and for the last few months its been all about Bambi. The opening look of the designer’s critically lauded fall collection was a Disney inspired sweatshirt that added touch of twee to the typically hard-edged Givenchy look and instantly became a cult status symbol. The signature piece has been making waves in magazines of late with the Bambi shirt appearing on the cover of Vogue Japan, the newly launched Miss Vogue AustraliaVogue China and Madame Figaro, not to mention inside appearances in i-D Magazine & V Magazine. Add in the fact that this little number has also been spotted on the backs of everyone from Beyoncé Knowles to Carine Roitfeld and you have the makings of a moment.

Falling 4 Pre-Fall

December 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Pre-fall is in full swing and the season between seasons is providing us with plenty of eye-candy this time around. Take a look at some of our favorites so far and be sure to let us know what you’re loving in the comments.



HELMUT LANG

Neutrals – particularly dramatic black and white – are the bread and butter of the new incarnation of Helmut Lang. Don’t let last season’s foray into bold color fool you, designers Michael and Nicole Colovos have always had a special place in their heart for a restrained color palette. The duo also loves a sharply cut leather jacket and a well applied use of ombre, so their pre-fall look was just one hit after another.


Calvin Klein Collection
Models: Magdalena Jasek, Sara Blomqvist, Katya Ryabinkina

Naturally designer Francisco Costa gave Calvin loyalists minimalism, but the brand’s pre-fall looks had an autumnal twist. Described as ‘essential classics’ Costa’s pieces were appealing reinventions of pieces every woman ought to have in her wardrobe; the perfect camel coat, the figure hugging shift, even a few pared down dresses that can go from day into evening.



GIVENCHY
Model: Ricardo Figueiredo

Givenchy always keeps us on our toes and their pre-fall offerings are no exception; leather shorts, deconstructed argyle sweaters, blazers emblazoned with the word pervert – everything is just a little off-kilter, but that keeps things exciting. Like many designers do during this season, Riccardo Tisci looked to the idea of essentials and took some of his bestselling pieces into fresh territory. Just when you think you’ve tired of those ubiquitous doberman t-shirts, Tisci gives you a remixed version of the statement look done in a digitized print.


3.1 PHILLIP LIM
Model: Valery Kaufman / Images Courtesy Phillip Lim

Easily the most sophisticated take on the biker lore that we’ve seen in ages. Fashionphiles are sure to see some Balenciaga parallels in this collection, but adapting high fashion ideas for contemporary set is part of Lim’s formula. Lim played with embellishment, adding in crystals, embroidery and loads of layering for added interest. As always accessories are on point, with a sporty brand new backpack serving as the standout piece.

Powerful Soul

November 16th, 2011 |Posted by models.com

The ever so fascinating Lea T shines with a bevy of male models in the latest issue of Candy Magazine by Andreas Larsson. The Givenchy muse sports a both masculine and feminine looks and even tangos with fellow androgynous model Andrej Pejic in Yves Saint Laurent. Riccardo Tisci gushes about her saying that she is a “unique, rare, natural beauty, a combination of purity, hardness, romanticism, and agressiveness: all components of androgyny that are bound to both sexes,” and we couldn’t agree more!

Givenchygasm

June 7th, 2011 |Posted by Janelle

Riccardo Tisci‘s gothic view for Givenchy is the perfect compliment for Steven Klein‘s darkly erotic photographs and in this month’s Interview the forces combine for an engrossing editorial starring Saskia de Brauw and Guinevere Van Seenus. The Amanda Lear and Bettie Page inspired fall collection was filled with suggestive undertones and Ludivine Poiblanc selects sheer pieces that seem designed to titillate. Julien d’Ys‘s larger than life anime hair styles and Stephane Marais‘s bold makeup, give the story an added sense of whimsy, but nothing (not even a backdrop of crushed cars) can take our eyes off of those Tisci creations.
