Riccardo Tisci has left Givenchy after 12 years as creative director, it was confirmed today. In a statement from Givenchy, the brand said: “After a very successful twelve year partnership, the House of Givenchy and its Artistic Director, Riccardo Tisci, announce their joint decision not to renew their collaboration, effective January 31 2017.”
“I have very special affection for the House of Givenchy and its beautiful teams,” said Tisci.
“I want to thank the LVMH group and Monsieur Bernard Arnault for giving me the platform to express my creativity over the years.”
“I now wish to focus on my personal interests and passions.”
The question for both parties now is where will they go from here? The rumor mill has it that Tisci will be moving to Versace. The growing trend between designers and fashion houses switching up in the industry has been well documented and this move, in particular, will be interesting to watch as more develops. Stay tuned with us for updates.
