Riccardo Tisci Supposedly Replacing Galliano At Dior

GivenchyRiccardoTisci1 Riccardo Tisci Supposedly Replacing Galliano At Dior

All sorts of fashion sites have said it’s been “confirmed” that Riccardo Tisci, currently the head designer for Givenchy, will be replacing John Galliano at Christian Dior. At this point the confirmation seems to be a lot of people repeating the same rumor on Twitter, making it far from official news. If it is him, just to get up to speed, Tisci was born in Italy, is 35 and began designing for Givenchy in February 2005. Christian Dior is publically traded and thus very numbers minded so if it is indeed looking at Tisci, it’s in part because Givenchy has grown since Tisci landed there, with an added plus that over his past few collections he’s begun to really hit his stride creatively. Another plus is that Givenchy, like Christian Dior, is a couture label so there would be less of a adjustment period in that respect.

Still, while he may be a great candidate and the only one on Dior’s short list, given the intense level of scandal it just experienced, you’d have to guess that its doing a very, very thorough background check of Tisci so even if he’s the company’s No. 1 nominee, it could be a minute before the announcement is made official.

Carine Roitfeld Spotted In Givenchy At Amfar Event

AmfarCarineRoitfeld&DVF

We have a post-Vogue-Paris-break-up photo of Carine Roitfeld (that’s her with Diane Von Furstenberg above), spotted in Givenchy in New York last night at the Amfar Gala, which raises funds for AIDS research. Perhaps not coincidentally, we read on Fashioncopious this morning of more rumors on her departure from Vogue. The latest version, which comes from Cathy Horyn at the NY Times, is that there were complaints about her lack of presence as a manager (a la Nina Garcia and Elle) and Roitfeld offered in a threatening sort of way to resign….like, oh, you don’t like it, then fine, I’ll leave! And much to her surprise, the response was, great, don’t let the door hit on your way out! And part of the fallout was that Roitfeld and Emmanuelle Alt, who nabbed the editor in chief spot, are no longer speaking. Quelle novella!

After the flip, a better view of Roitfeld’s dress, plus images of Iman, Anna Wintour and her bestie Blake Lively, Donna Karan, Karen Elson performing, and Olivier Theyskens.

LVMH Buys Up 14 Percent Of Hermes

kimkourtney LVMH Buys Up 14 Percent Of Hermes

Luxury-goods holding house LVMH (Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton), whose names include heavy hitters Louis Vuitton, Fendi, Celine and Givenchy among many others, must be enjoying the returns on its luxury leather brands since it just pruchased 14 percent of super-status fashion house Hermes, most famous for its “Kelly” and “Birkin” (carried by Kim Kardashian above) bag styles. The rest of the company’s shares are held by members of the Hermes family. LVMH claims it’s not trying to attempt a total takeover, but given its aggressive history (check its epic attempt to grab Gucci), not everyone is buying that.

Was going to put this after the flip in the last post on Givenchy bags, but with the industrial gold clasp and the double wide width, it’s too fancy to not get its own front-page shine. One more on the next page.

Givenchy continues to devour the accessorries game, as illustrated by this quietly commanding  leopard purse. It’s not new but the rust-colored spot combined with the hardware and the neat “Givenchy” stamp make it  fresh. Two more after the flip. Via WWD.

Rihanna3 Rihanna Flaunts The Trouser Trend

No surprise that Rihanna is jumping all over the up-and-coming trouser trend. The woman just has that eye for what’s next. Does anyway recognize the tee? I thought it was part of Style’s 10th anniversary collection, but I don’t think so. Check out a closeup on her copper-colored (or maybe taupe?) mani on the next page, plus one a better view of her hat. Via Ultimaterihanna.
