As more than a thousand people traversed the rush hour–choked West Side Highway and flooded onto Pier 26—all dressed to the nines (or maybe the threes or twos, given the skimpiness of a few notable looks)—it’s fair to say that one of the very last things they were expecting was to be immersed in a contemplative experience. Yet this is what they got from Riccardo Tisci on the night he brought his Givenchy show to New York City, coinciding with the 14th anniversary of 9/11. There was no all-out gig from Rihanna and Kanye West (as had been the speculation when “performances” were mentioned), and no inaugural walk from Caitlyn Jenner, which had been optimistically rumored, given Tisci’s strong credentials as fashion’s first champion of transgender models.
Instead, with the aid of his coconspirator, the artist Marina Abramovic, and the cooperation of a staggering sunset across the Hudson, Tisci made his show into a meditation on the losses of 9/11, and on slowing things down in our heads, perhaps to mourn, but also to remember how lucky we are to be alive. The audience—the seated professionals and celebrities, and the standing public—were made to wait and watch for a good hour, absorbing the spectacle of blue sky and white and pink-tinted clouds as Abramovic’s slow-moving performers, dressed in white shirts and black pants, acted out simple, strenuous, and repetitive rituals—one with a ladder, another with a tree, a third with a faucet gushing water. Stop! Abramovic seemed to be saying. Slow down and feel something! And meanwhile, in the foreground, the nonstop parade of personalities kept coming, and kept on being photographed and Instagrammed.
The Givenchy Spring Summer 2016 Bag Collection is full of surprises and we’d like to feature two bags that we are certain you will love.
The first bag is the Givenchy Pandora Backpack and it’s not the regular school bag from the past. The bag is squared and boxy which gives a lot of extra space to store books, laptops and all other necessary things you need on the road.
And by the way, it’s the ideal travel bag. The front comes with a zip pocket, the top features double zippers and you can even carry it by hand with the long handles.
The design reminds of the Givenchy Shark Bag, though the bag is entire covered in black, the white stitches on the edge are vivid. And also, the logo Givenchy is crafted on the top.
For the ‘Mini Bag’ fans, we got a little surprise. The Mini Shark Shoulder Bag has been released and it’s gorgeous. Oh yes, for those that do not love the color (black and white stripe), there should be more colors available, but for now just stick with the new style.
A much smaller bag for the evenings, it’s like the Wallet On Chain Bag but then bigger. The front is made with a bold Shark Tooth Locker and the brand’s name is printed above. The chain is feminine, thing and gorgeous too. So where are you heading tonight?
