Ricardo Tisci is a juggernaut of the fashion world. A matter of fact his cultural impact at this point transcends the fashion world and the style he has championed since being appointed creative director at Givenchy has arguably been the most marketable of any of fashion house of our generation.

However has Ricardo Tisci been a “creative” director for the past few years or has he just followed his formula for past success? The premium street wear that Givenchy was peddling in 2012 is looking ever so boring at this point and I personally am tired of star motifs. Also with the emergence of Vetements, Givenchy is at risk of being left behind in a lane it created.

I don’t question for one moment that Ricardo Tisci is a talented designer but Givenchy is in dire need of some new energy and with changes at Gucci, DiorĀ and Saint Laurent maybe he isn’t any longer the man for the job.

So I was pretty disappointed when the main man. the illest designer Britain has ever known, Oswald Boateng was replaced as creative director of menswear at Givenchy. But the man who was appointed as his replacement wasn’t quite what you would call crap. Riccardo Tisci is an extremely talented designer to say the least, so it wasn’t very surprising when I saw Givenchy’s Spring/Summer line however it was still very impressive. He has a very dark, kinda hood feel to his clothing and I like that. Which leads me to these 2 new t-shirts, they’re dopeness they sort of have a biker,gothic style of look. It’s quite original and a direction which not many other high fashion labels are going in. So basically I applaud Riccardo Tisci, he has succeeded where my favourite designer failed(well he didn’t really fail but ya know).
