Take a Walk on the Dark Side

Last season Givenchy’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, was on the side of angels. This year, for Fall 2013 Menswear, it is the devil’s turn. A two-concentric circle-runway, sated with candles. A lugubrious voice, fills the room and the show begins. It is rather dark, yet magnificent for there is a distinctly occult vibe. A fashion exorcism. A show to remember.
