Scroll through Instagram and you get a whole lot of different takes on Riccardo Tisci’s sensational show tonight: gypsies, Game of Thrones, Joan of Arc. One thing everybody could agree on: These were the baddest bitches on a Givenchy runway in a long time. That, and it was hands down the sexiest collection of the season so far.
As Tisci’s interest drifted toward the streetwear scene in the last couple of years and he turned the designer sweatshirt into a covetable (and highly lucrative, no doubt) commodity, his collections lost some of the unabashed sexual heat he was once known for. Well, it came roaring back from the first look out here: a little black dress with grommeted lacing between the breasts, worn with peep-toe boots, the tops of which nearly grazed the skirt’s hem.
