A Store Is Born: Givenchy Paris
Riccardo Tisci never runs out of ways to make you feel special. His new Givenchy women’s boutique in Paris, a collaboration with architect Joseph Dirand, is a reinterpretation of the Givenchy boxes used to deliver haute couture items to the house’s most moneyed clientele. Each room is its own box, decked out in felt walls, dark green breccia marble, golden mirroring, black lacquer, anthracite, and ceppo stone. A round marble staircase connects the rooms, which naturally includes a VIP salon.
And, if you’re still unsure of the house’s dark, aristocratic elegance, a limited edition of the HDG (House de Givenchy) bag has been produced — specifically, five — in beige ostrich, white python, and black lizard. Should you be interested in the price, ask at the store.
