American Splendor–Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci looked to the stars and stripes to dress his uniform for the season. Minotaurs tamed, Givenchy’s men paraded down the runway with decorated hoop in nose. From somber black ensembles, dressed with a version of the American flag to skirts and knits adorned with stars, the season’s theme came loud and strong. Revisiting past collections and borrowing their standout pieces, ranging from leggings to boots, the new factor was limited, but embellishment in full effect. Embracing an earthy brown, Givenchy toiled with mosaic prints when not running its gamble through red, blue and white. Encrusted with studs, sequins and stars, the convergence of sharp tailoring and sportswear was at once the same Givenchy of recent memory that has dominated the hiphop landscape.
