Recently, the somewhat shocking news broke that Givenchy’s head – Riccardo Tisci – had made the decision to skip the couture show season for the second year in row. Of course, we all know that Tisci has hardly been taking a break from the rigors of the demanding fashion world -he’s been hard at work designing for Rihanna’s tour, Met exhibitions and costumes for Parisian ballet casts. Yet, Givenchy disciples of the world have been feeling a little slighted. Well all of that is about to change – despite another years sans Givenchy couture – because a brand new timepiece line is about to hit the streets!
Yes, Tisci has been setting his sights on the luxury watch game lately…meaning that there has never been a better time to invest in a quality timepiece. Far from the ostentatious look of many watches on the market, the Givenchy collection is understated, rugged, and overall a classic example of a perfect union between fashion and function. Soon to be available in six striking color schemes ($770 -$890). Crafted from stainless steel, sapphire glass and gold-plating, and complete with Swiss Quartz movement technology, these time-tellers are sure to be instant collectibles for any watch enthusiast or sartorial master.
