The new INTERVIEW magazine just dropped and also my jaw when I came across this stunning editorial.
By DONATELLA VERSACE
Stylist LUDIVINE POIBLANC
Riccardo Tisci in New York, May 2011. All clothing and accessories: Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci Fall/Winter 2011.
EXCERPT FROM THE INTERVIEW (the interesting part)
VERSACE: Now I must ask you, do you have new ideas for Givenchy, or something new for Riccardo Tisci? I think you know what I mean. [laughs]
TISCI: Yes, I know what you mean. You mean what happened at Dior. I don’t know what will happen. Sincerely, I feel sorry for John. But for this moment I am leaving aside all the gossip of “I am going here, I am going there,” because there is a lot of gossip circulating and there always will be. I will tell you, in this moment, I am very happy at Givenchy and it is a moment in which I am bringing the game to the next level. So I tell you, I feel at home. It’s as if it were my son. I don’t know how to explain it. It would be very difficult for me to leave.
VERSACE: It’s like your child, there.
TISCI: Absolutely. Because I arrived here, with a destroyed house, with nothing. I had to do everything very slowly. And with a little team and a great president, we achieved a lot. I am happy here. For now, it is still Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci, and I think that it will be for a long time, because it will be difficult to evict me from my house. I feel good here! [laughs]
VERSACE: We will see if this is the whole truth!
TISCI: No, I would really say that, at the moment, it really is the truth. My truth is this: That I don’t know what will happen tomorrow because you can never know.
