"... And being single. Which is like the most important thing. To really be free to do whatever you want, it was amazing!” Tisci feels that the cinematically powerful story of his parents’ romantic coup de foudre “is why it’s so difficult for me to find love,” and bemoans the fact that he lives in “the city of love . . . you really need a boyfriend or a girlfriend to really enjoy it.” (Riccardo Tisci - Vogue, February 2012)

His fall collection was largely autobiographical, born of twin acts of misfortune. One was a love affair that ended last year, leaving Tisci in a wistful mood suggested by the poetry of Hegarty’s lyrics. “In a way, it was a celebration of love, of honesty, of purity,” Tisci says of the show. (WWD, April 2013)

Did Frank Ocean Spend The Night With Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci After The Met Gala??? http://perezhilton.com/cocoperez/201....f2SLzZHW.dpbs

Anyway, I get the impression that Riccardo Tisci feels attracted to women as well... Maybe he is bisexual.

"I met the most extraordinary creature. She was full of energy; she was beautiful; she was super sexy. When I left, I couldn't get her out of my head. I’d been obsessed with her at Central Saint Martins." (Riccardo Tisci - dazeddigital.com)

It is well known that Nicolas Ghesquière was romantically involved with James Kaliardos, the make-up artist, some years back.

Question — What would you consider great social progress or important political policy?
Nicolas Ghesquière — I’d say gay marriage and adoption for gay and lesbian couples. These are reforms I hope for. I don’t understand why I live in a country as a third-class citizen. I don’t understand why I have this public life, this fame, this creative and social role, and yet I only half exist because of my sexuality. Gays are considered people who should have limited social freedoms, and I want this to stop. I think gay people should be able to make or adopt children. This would be a sign that a country has evolved.

I think he has been involved with interior designer Ryan Korban for some time now...

Ryan Korban? Interesting! Thanks for the photo, arlekin.

Back in 2010 I read in a Spanish fashion magazine, Telva, that Alexander Wang and Joseph Altuzarra were "more than friends."

Anna Dello Russo mentions to Altuzarra in the September 2010 issue of Interview: "When I met you, I also met Alexander [Wang]. You're always together, which is lovely because your job is very competitive." And Altuzarra replies: "I'm actually with Alex now in the Hamptons."

V Magazine (June 2010). Alex and Joseph discuss their friendship: http://www.vmagazine.com/site/conten...-of-dreams#!/8

On how they met, and what makes their friendship so different:

AW We actually met through mutual friends about a year and a half ago-- the Trainas. Vanessa and Victoria and I went to high school together. You met Vanessa in Paris, and we all met up at a birthday party. When it comes to close friends, it's really hard for me to meet people that I feel I can connect to these days -- in terms of what I do as a job, and also who I am as a person, because there is a seperation there. And I think a lot of people don't understand that. With you, it's nice to have a friend of my generation who understands my references, understands the things that a 25-year-old would like, and at the same time has to go to work every day and has to run a company.

JA A lot of times I'll call you. I mean we don't actually talk about work all that often, but when we do, it will be more like...

AW It's been great, for me, because I've had certain people who were like, if you have any questions you can come ask me. And it's so great, of course, to have that kind of support, but at the same time to be able to go over to your friend's house and not have to set up a formal meeting... it's such a special bond that we have.

JA So much of the time we have to be a little bit older than our age. To be able to have fun together and go out and understand each other and what we are doing professionally --to me that's really important.

AW I also really respect and admire your work, which is a big part of it. There are a lot of people I love in fashion, but with you, I trust you. I trust your opinion.

JA Likewise. I mean, we always ask each other questions. It's just what every designer goes through. You have doubts about what you're doing, or maybe a direction you're going in. Sometimes it's not specific, sometimes you just need to talk it through.

AW We talk about people-- like, Oh would you dress her? No, I wouldn't dress her.

AW I think we have a similar sensibility of who our customer is, you know? A lot of our friends or the people who we think are cool or have amazing style are a lot of the same girls. But they go to you for certain things, then come to me for certain things, and it's nice that we have that difference. We'll be vintage shopping togther, and I'll be like, Oh look at this, and you'll be like, Oh this is way more you. It's interesting that we can find ourselves through each other.

JA It's so rare.

Olivier Theyskens - Numéro #142 April 2013:

"I even had a handful of girlfriends at the time. I don't think I'm the only gay guy to have slept with girls. It was like that until I was 17, when I knew I wanted get things sorted, enrol in fashion school and only go out with boys."

The previous summer the two (Riccardo Tisci and Marina Abramović) had gone to Santorini together on holiday, but since each had just broken up with someone, they had spent most of their time “crying and crying—we were like an island,” said Tisci.

"I had this memory of sitting facing Marina in Greece at a time when we were both full of darkness after bad loves, tears pouring down our faces." (Riccardo Tisci)

When asked if he has ever been in love, he launched into a story of heartbreak, careful to avoid the use of pronouns. “I don’t want to specify sexuality,” Tisci said. “The big love of my life happened two or three years ago. For the first time I opened myself 100 percent, and I got, literally, a knife in my heart. This person had me in their power, and for a while it destroyed me.” (Riccardo Tisci - W Magazine, Sep 2010)

Riccardo Tisci: "You can read from my collections if I am happy or going through a tough moment in life, because my style completely changes. In one collection, I was really upset and angry with love and with someone I was loving. This season (autumn-winter 2013) you can see that it is light and romantic, because I am really in love." He won't say with whom. (South China Morning Post)
