Givenchy : Mens S/S 2011 : Victorian Circus

Provocative and surreal, Riccardo Tisci’s Victorian Circus is not for the light of heart gentleman.  Structured jumpsuits with exposed darts creating a trompe-l’œil vest, skorts and sheer leopard lace button downs, Tisci evokes a confident man with a dark side.  The leather masks and spine necklaces epitomize this theme – however the spine necklace lays phenomenally around the collar – a look that can absolutely be translated into the real world.  What makes this such a stunning collection is the  reinterpretation of black tie: leopard jacquard silk suiting, sheer chiffon and lace tuxedo shirts, white on white and leather pants that look poured on.  As for the accessories, the shoes and necklace are on point.  All in all Riccardo Tisci’s Victorian Circus is a wild ride – and i want to go again.
