Taking a page out of Jason Wu’s book, Riccardo Tisci stars in his own advertising campaign for Givenchy. In an unexpected and exciting twist, Donatella Versace makes an appearance alongside Tisci in the first official campaign image for the Fall 2015 campaign. Released unusually early and making a huge splash on Instagram, the arresting black and white portrait lensed by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott captures the fashion designers in profile. Styled by Carine Roitfeld, the dynamic duo are sure to set tongues wagging.
Forum members are slowly reacting to the campaign. “When I saw the title names I was OMG in a negative way, but it’s quite nice in a down to earth way,” shared Nymphaea, oozing a positive attitude toward the campaign.
“I appreciate the trolling effort. It’s a smart move, it’ll keep people talking forever and ever,” added mistress f.
Also in favor of the idea was fashionlover2001: “I’m excited. So far so good. This is already an iconic campaign.”
Not everyone is sure, though. “So strange she would be in an ad campaign for another brand! She is wearing Givenchy for sure here? I had no idea they were friends, so this came as a shock thread title,” commented an uncertain Miss Dalloway.
“Well, it’s Fall 2015 Givenchy family campaign so I think anything could happen,” wrote catherine88, suggesting even more surprises are to come.
