To celebrate his 10 years at Givenchy, creative director Riccardo Tisci moved the Givenchy show, which usually shows in Paris, onto the New York Fashion Week calendar. Sharing the same date as the 14th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the United States, Tisci acknowledged to WWD that the show would be ‘a celebration of family and love’.
Celebrations were further marked by the opening of Givenchy’s flagship store on Madison Avenue, a 400-square-metre space designed by Tisci, featuring sleek, dark lacquered wood and concrete. “Space is part of the luxury of our stores,” says Tisci. The lack of decoration implies a sense of humility. You enter as yourself and leave as a member the Givenchy ‘tribe’ which describes an attitude, your clothes, and an openness to sharing ideas, while embracing the spirit of the brand.”
