Paris Menswear AW13: Givenchy

How do you make a collection devoid of colour feel bright and fresh?

Riccardo Tisci pulled it off, proving his expertise in printed T-shirts, but moving them forward enough to seem new. Religious icons made way for college jocks on textured knits, with tartan lending extra depth. But it wasn’t just the graphics that were key: outerwear surprised with sleek black silhouettes and raglan-style dropped armholes, while leather panels had an almost sinister feel. And despite the shorts and bonkers Frankenstein jackets, the collection had enough edgy and commercial pieces to keep buyers interested.

In short Dark, sharp and developed enough from last season’s offering to keep the Tisciettes keen.
