Mood board: From the star spangled banner to sporty basketball stripes, Ricardo Tisci often instills his Italo-Catholic aesthetic at Givenchy with the symbology of America. For A/W 2017, the designer looked to his childhood perceptions of the American West, splashing bright totemic prints on sweaters, and finishing shirts with ruffled details shaped like winged wooden carvings. Tisci offset these influences against his menswear house signatures: star prints, grungy plaids and stripes, and layered street-wear silhouettes.
Best in show: Alongside bright prints and patterns, Tisci presented more restrained combinations, including a navy single-breasted overcoat with oversized grainy wooden buttons, paired with slim trousers and wide-laced skater shoes.
Finishing touches: Tisci also designed a series of tailored single and double-breasted overcoats, finished with shimmering diamante buttons. The details bought an added splendour to his more grungy patterning.
