‘Bad boys and bad girls’ was how Riccardo Tisci summed up his Givenchy menswear-show: prison stripes and rugged workwear for him,  gauzy lace couture gowns for her. It was another powerful outing from Tisci — impressive in the restraint he used in exploring the lockup theme, and in the couture finesse he applied to sharp, hyper-masculine tailoring and streetwise sportswear alike.

Tisci’s  is obsessed with American workwear  and that explains the mechanic colors, bandanas, overalls and denim. There were indigo coats with leather trim, lean color-blocked jeans and the pale blue or coal black denim boiler suits with ghostly images of Jesus on the cross-embedded in the fabric.

The religious imagery, stripes and checks were the main print stories and there were new shapes: boxy T-shirts and scrubs, strict dress Bermudas and strong-shouldered suits and topcoats. Tisci’s tailoring was all precise lines and compact fabrics .
