The dapper rapper is commonplace these days and Riccardo Tisci is tempting him with Givenchy. The designer was inspired by Nineties America for a collection of “elegant street couture” that is becoming his hallmark for men. Tisci opened with a crisp white suit with a banded-collar shirt, gold rings shoved on each of the models’ fingers for an added boost of bling. Each exit that followed riffed on the fashion-meets-sportswear theme. Baggy basketball-style shorts and tank tops, some in mesh, were paired with tailored jackets with mini storm flaps. Shirts spangled with gold stars paid homage to Michael Jackson, while the bejeweled red tartans draped over shoulders or tied around the waist nodded to Guns N’ Roses front man Axel Rose. Tisci also referenced Morocco — and possibly Palestine, too — with keffiyeh-style hoodies and bold geometric-print silk shirts and leggings.
