It seems even the distinctly feminine menswear has not evaded the aesthetic of hardiness which is so rampant on the runways for FW09. Tisci sent out GIs clad in leggings of knit and leather for Givenchy. I shan’t lie, some pairs, laced extensively, had me salivating a little. Also, tasteful bandage for men! The Léger-esque technique appeared in shirts and shoes, the latter being a fusion of said bandage in ashen grey over midnight blue, or in the case of the thigh-high boots, a glittering fabric which resembled a night-sky with disco leanings. Black and related shades featured heavily (almost to the exclusion of any other colour) lending to that sombre, yet pleasingly classical tone that’s been felt at other shows so far.

This is just Tisci’s second menswear collection for Givenchy. Who knows what wonders he’ll conjure for SS10?

    “I shan’t lie, some pairs, laced extensively, had me salivating a little.”I burst out laughing here, because I felt the exact same way!

    Glitter or laced, nothing but serious violence could force me into those thigh-high boots to preserve my life.
