with Liv Tyler at the Met Ball
Know anyone who has come into some money recently? Apparently, friends of Riccardo Tisci think they do. According to reports, he chats openly about a forthcoming move to Dior, and is going to treat himself to a new pad in downtown New York as a result (not that we imagine he has been struggling financially as Creative Director of Givenchy)
Although the idea is, that, for legal reasons there will be no announcement until September (John Galliano’s departure is one that is not yet finalised by lawyers, and will take more time yet), and the current Christian Dior collections are all being created without the supervision of a creative director, but instead by the skilled teams in the ateliers of the revered old house. After years of having to laboriously type out the phrase ‘Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci’ every time we mention his brand, the next question we journalists have is; will Riccardo insist on a similar name-change at LVMH’s flagship brand?
