A SINISTER HUSH
Paris: Riccardo Tisci pulled his punches with his latest collection for Givenchy, showing a rich but subdued presentation of charcoal wool suiting with sharp shoulders and tonal shirting, leather accented duffel jackets and even a touch of classic argyle. The designer’s seductive tension still simmered beneath the surface, evident in rich shimmering tweeds, zipper embellished velvet suits and smoky Kenneth Anger meets Mapplethorpe graphics. Standout must-haves included outerwear with leather apron fronts, knit crewneck tops and snap-button cargo pocket shirts. Vaguely sinister and intriguingly quiet, F/W 13 was Tisci at his most accomplished.—Nina Stotler
