Hope You Weren't Waiting on Givenchy Couture, Because It's Not Coming... Again

Riccardo Tisci, Creative Director of Givenchy, has had quite the packed schedule as of late. In the past few months alone, he's co-chaired the Met Gala, designed outfits for Rihanna and Beyonce, and flown to New York to accept the CFDA's International Award. Seemingly the only thing not on his to-do list? Designing couture. WWD reports that, for the second year in a row, Tisci has decided to focus on projects that will give Givenchy a financial push, rather than present at Paris Couture Week on July 1-4.

The first project that has Tisci's attention is a line of unisex timepieces. Now, watches are great and everything, but I can't help but feel a pang of sadness when I think of a Givenchy without couture. (Cue a very stylish whomp whomp sound.) Without couture, fashion is just all trends and money. Couture is what allows fashion to become art. So, while I look forward to continuing to see Tisci's designs on the red carpet and stage, I will still be patiently awaiting the day they once again walk the runway.
