Since the news of MJ’s death has spread everywhere, undoubtedly including Outer Mongolia at this stage (is there any real basis to this old phrase…?), I’ll spare another reiteration of the details. That said, it’s impossible to give somewhat of a review on Givenchy’s SS10 without referring, at least in passing to the glittering, stud-sporting pop-icon.
Considering Jackson’s fondness for Givenchy womenswear it was only natural that Riccardo Tisci be appointed the equivalent of head of costumery for MJ’s comeback performances at the O2 in London. The first consultation was to take place today. Alas.
But Wacko Jacko’s signature slick-showman aesthetic was still evident in Tisci’s latest menswear endeavour. From the trademark black-and-white colour combination to the gilded-looking details it all seemed to salute the sartorial splendour of the departed entertainer.
Then there was the sporty/latino/Moroccan (what a hybrid…) dynamic to the entire affair (another typically Tisci flourish) not so much MJ but desirable none the less.
