Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy resort 2013 collection featured some beautiful silk paisley scarf prints, patchworked with geometric shapes in solid tones of scarlet, electric blue and black and white. The result was eye-popping and sophisticated at the same time. Riccardo was inspired by the idea of a “traveling nomadic woman.” “She’s a gypsy, really,” he said – and a very modern gypsy at that.
