Riccardo Tisci's injection of undeniably rebellious designs have turned Givenchy on its head, and his talent and skill is commendable, but this collection particularly is a hit and miss. The Pre-Spring/Summer collection for 2014 encompasses an abundance of neon camouflage, gender-illuding florals and symbolic fire prints, which overpower the wonderful tailoring of the collection and the fact that this is the first Pre-season Givenchy menswear collection that features the man-bag.
To the Tisci loyalist, this collection is a wonderment, albeit this is more extreme than previous collections, but to people who are new to his eccentricity may be intimidated by this collection. Riccardo usually sets trends, but with this collection, it seems he has been reactive, twisting the much seen trends of camouflage and floral prints for men by using much vibrant colours and applying it to the slim-line yet sometimes obscure silhouette he is known for. There is much more to this designer, and many know it, we'll just have to see what's next for Mr. Tisci.
