I recently stumbled across an old magazine article w/ Tisci, where he explained how his harder, darker approach to design @ Givenchy has little to do with what he found in the archives, but more about what he found in Hubert himself, as a living, breathing human being. Interesting.
“The dress must follow the body of a woman, not the body following the shape of the dress.”
Hubert de Givenchy
Hubert de Givenchy, one of the most talented and famous fashion designers of all time, relaxes before his show at the Waldorf Astoria's Ball Room in 1976. He's wearing a fitted polo shirt, some jeans, and what appears to be a scarf wrapped around his waist, classic and avantgard 70s style.
“The only real elegance is in the mind; if you've got that, the rest really comes from it.”
