They’re finally here, after a long wait due to stock problems that majority of the 2012 Givenchy frames have arrived this week. Was the wait worth it? Most definitely: exquisite, chic design and top quality as you would expect from this leading design house.
Research into design and refined materials are the key features of the new Givenchy eyewear collection, developed under the creative direction of Riccardo Tisci. Rich in high stylistic content, the Givenchy eyewear collection expresses a bold and alluring femininity that is in line with the spirit of the French Maison, presenting retro opticals that draw inspiration from prêt-à-porter themes.
Givenchy, founded in 1952 by designer Hubert de Givenchy, is an international luxury brand known for its haute couture, ready-to-wear collections for men and women and fashion accessories. Its iconic little black dress became a rage all over the fashion world after Hollywood actress, Audrey Hepburn wore it in the old classic, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Hubert de Givenchy retired after forty-three years of fashion design.
Since 2005, Riccardo Tisci has been appointed Artistic Director of the women’s haute couture, ready to wear and accessories collections. In 2008, his contract was renewed, expanding to menswear and its accessories. Aristocratic and distinctive, sober and mysteriously sensual, he has tenaciously built a coherent, modern universe at Givenchy, firmly anchored in the company’s illustrious heritage, but determinedly forward-looking.
