When the Altuzarra collection was shown for the first time at New York Fashion Week, in the spring of 2009, his draped dresses and tailored pants and coats were met with rave reviews—and he became the industry’s newest darling.
Riccardo Tisci has unveiled his debut collection for Nike: four pairs of trainers based upon the sport brand’s most celebrated style, the Air Force 1. With Chanel’s couture trainers unveiled one week ago and now Tisci’s new incarnation, sneakers have never looked so luxurious.
Riccardo Tisci is the Creative Director of Givenchy. He was educated at Central Saint Martins in London and worked for Puma before establishing his own line in 2004. It was his dark, sensual outlook that marked him out as someone unusual. “There’s something of the night in myself,” he said.
