Previously, I have looked at Riccardo Tisci's menswear show for next summer and looking on AnOther magazine's website, in 'Menswear Confidential' Tisci describes breifly his own visual references and narrative beneath the collection. This I found interesting, to see knowledge and opinions first hand from the designer, rather than an audiences interpretation. Riccardo draws strongly on the Circus which 'portrays the freedom to express oneself, to be who you are'. This search for identity is prominent as Tisci continues that 'the collection is based on eccentricity, such as a circus symbolizes'. Givenchy's tailoring and 'lace for romanticism' and 'leopard print for sensuality' present the characteristics of the Givenchy world.
