“People want identity. It’s not about the trend of the season, but the identity of the brand,” said Riccardo Tisci of his pre-fall collection. Thus he took the recycling route, bringing back some of his greatest hits from the past seven years at Givenchy. A few of his famed prints — the “Virgin Mary” and “Rottweiler” motifs, along with the tropicals from spring — were reworked in patchworks, and his “pointy jackets” and peplums, this time in less severe forms, were there, too. He destroyed some of his old knits, using their yarns for new sweaters — the three Rs at their most chic. As for accessories, baseball caps (with their visors cut off) and even sunglasses were trimmed with fur, and rather than launching a new “It” bag, Tisci carried over the Maison Givenchy HDG from spring, this time in two smaller versions.
