Founded in 1953 by Hubert de Givenchy, the house of Givenchy quickly grew to become one of the most iconic fashion brands in the world. Since 2005 Riccardo Tisci has protected Givenchy’s architectural lines and aristocratic polish, but added his own darkly romantic style and a certain urbanity. With Tisci holding the reigns, Givenchy is ever the trendsetter, unrivalled in its balance of high-end elegance and streetwise chic. Plus, he’s who we have to thank for having made the luxe sweatshirt such a contemporary must-have.
