Trending: Givenchy's Iconoclasts

Riccardo Tisci is a trouble-maker. Since his appointment at the creative helm of Givenchy in 2005, Tisci has been turning the codes and standards of the French heritage house upside down, making Givenchy his own with his culturally loaded women's and men's ready-to-wear collections.

And Tisci's collections are indeed worth the praise: the Italian designer has infused a good dose of roughness, attitude, and urban energy into the traditional French house and his take on Hubert de Givenchy's legacy has been of great commercial success so far. So much so that Tisci has been able to attract an ever-growing fan-base – a fashion-hungry tribe of Givenchy worshippers who constantly represent and adore Tisci's unique creative identity.

From his closest muses and friends (think models Liya Kebede and Mariacarla Boscono who star in almost every Givenchy campaign) and the much-hyped indie artists that surround him, such as Erykah Badu and Angel Haze, to transgender model Lea T., who caused a media stir when she walked at Givenchy for the first time – Tisci's tribe is eclectic, to say the least, and knows how to push the boundaries of the status-quo.

This season again, Tisci's capacity to mix and match street-wear infused and gender-bending aesthetics with elegant tailoring and opulent sensuality was impressive, but what always stands out is the trans-generational and cross-cultural philosophy of his collections, where styles and cultures blend into a beautiful whole. This Fall/Winter 2016-17 was inspired by ancient Egyptian and mystical symbols and featured a touch of flamenco and a decidedly urban attitude. Not convinced yet? See our top 5 show picks below and judge for yourself.

We love the idea of turning a flamenco bolero jacket into a cool twinset piece!

This wild mix-and-match makes our hearts beat faster. Leopard and stripe prints, a multiple Eye of Providence pattern enclosed in triangles, a shiny mosaic patchwork – all mixed into one sassy outfit.

Because we always need a girly-girly ruffled lace dress in our wardrobes. And worn with these under-the-knee boots, it's even better as there is an added edgy flair to it.

How many all-seeing eyes do you see in this outfit? We see 7 – the mystical number – but maybe you'll find more. This cool cocktail number has us playing "Where's Wally?" games.

 

5.

Because you can always use a ruffled black babydoll dress – and paired with a boxy bomber jacket it's even better. And because Bella Hadid wears it.
