It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a Givenchy nut. Okay, maybe not the rottweiler t-shirts and I took a pass on the fold-over boot (the It boot of FW2012), but I have certainly invested a tidy sum in other Givenchy pieces. So it’s no surprise that I’m delighted that Riccardo Tisci has renewed his contract with the house for another 3 years.
I understand how saddened the Balenciaga devotees are over the departure of Nicolas Ghesquiere, especially on the heels of such a stand-out SS13 show. And I was distraught to read that the founders of Current/Elliott, my all-time favorite pant line, have left their company. The day I read the news I doubled up on a few of my cannot-live-without pairs.
There have been a number of designer change-ups this year and it makes me beg the question, do you wear a label no matter who’s at the helm? I would like to think that I am label-loyal, but I’m not, I only buy and wear what I like. Makes it all the more devastating when a collaboration that I love ends.
