Paris…Givenchy

For his second season as creative director of Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci continued his journey from S/S 09 when he sent a runway of models out with shorts and leggings. For F/W 09/10, he made his man a bid more edgy with military crew cuts, more muscular builds, and then tore all the stereotypes down by putting them in knit and leather leggings, heavy wool capes, and even self-described “Frankenstein” boots with a scintillating sheen.  Some of the shorts rendered in duchess satin gave a much-needed feeling of lightness to the heavy steps of the dark-hued looks. Knits mostly were made up of tonal stripes with a long, relaxed silhouette.  It will be interesting to see how Tisci’s new ideal of masculinity actually evolves in future seasons.

Who knew that hoisery would become so big for men? With the megging, knee-high socks and skin tight boots, feminine pieces have become masculine. Many of the Mens’ collections are even showing the guys sporting skirts and Marc Jacobs refuses to give up his kilt. Women are also wearing menswear inspired looks. Does this current cross-over represent a new world order for fashion history?
