Riccardo Tisci has been a busy guy lately–picking up CFDA awards, designing tour costumes for Beyoncé and Rihanna, hosting the Met Gala, and making controversial gowns for Kim Kardashian. In fact, he’s been so busy that he won’t be able to show a fall Givenchy couture collection this season, according to WWD.
This is the second season in a row that Givenchy has skipped the couture collections. But that doesn’t mean the house is giving up on couture.
Givenchy will still, as last season, take on private clients and work to expand the atelier. So if you want some Givenchy couture, just give Tisci a buzz.
Couture or no couture, Givenchy is at the top of its game thanks to Tisci’s talents and hard work. And while Givenchy won’t be showing a couture collection the brand is getting into the watch game (a booming market) for the first time since 2009.
The unisex timepieces, which are named after prime numbers (fun fact: Tisci’s lucky number is 17) are sporty and graphic, and go for the high but decidedly un-couture price of $770-$890.
