View Designer Profile
Hubert de Givenchy founded his namesake fashion house in 1952, becoming one of the 20th century's most renowned couturiers on the strength of his timeless and supremely refined designs. Since 2005, creative director Riccardo Tisci has brought a dark romanticism and sensuality to the house's codes of luxury. Intricately feminine dresses and modern, tailored eveningwear join luxe versions of streetwear staples including bomber jackets, sweatshirts, and t-shirts in unexpected satin, fur, and leather. Alongside the label’s signature Antigona, Pandora, and Nightingale bags and Shark Lock accessories, its neo-Baroque rottweiler, Madonna, and Bambi graphic prints have become iconic fixtures of the contemporary fashion landscape. Tisci’s fusion of athletic and aristocratic elements defines Givenchy’s innovative "street couture" aesthetic.
