Can you get more beautiful than this? I think not. My favourite man in fashion has introduced us to his exquisite Spring 2013 collection. Albeit a little early for next year, I want all of it. Like now. The structured, architectural pieces are crafted in patchwork, monochrome and paisley and are more than interesting to look at. There is a nod to traditional Givenchy there too, with boxy jackets and men’s shirts. What’s more subtle is the gypsy influence channelled through lace and frills. I loved Riccardo before, and now I love him even more. Givenchy have said of the collection “Riccardo Tisci introduces a spirit of relaxed urban couture in his Spring collection. Transcending the best of Givenchy’s architectural lines and clean cuts, he blends them with a gypsy influence expressed through prints and volumes. The feeling is about lightness, about mixing and matching what is seemingly at odds or classic with a sense of ease”. Too true.
