This past Friday, Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci presented his Givenchy Men’s Fall 2017 Collection at Paris Fashion Week.

The Italian fashion designer has long been inspired by and involved with America. “I try to be positive, to see things positively for the future,” said Tisci. His solution was to look “west at America, through the eyes of a child.” He added that his mood had lightened—a counterintuitive statement. “For nine years as a designer, I did darkness,” he conceded. “I’ve just come out of that.” As Tisci put this show together, he said he felt “serenity.”

As Tisci offered post-show, he’d been inspired by “stars, stripes, totem poles, and looking at incredible images of Victorian women in the West.” He hastened to add, “I don’t like to steal anyone’s culture.”

What I like best about Tisci‘s shows other than the clothes are the diverse models on the runway. The designer has been an industry pioneer in normalizing diversity in modeling and his latest show reflected that. Way to go Tisci!
