Riccardo Tisci draws inspiration from the 1920s in his masterful 10-piece couture collection for Givenchy, and the Gatsby-era glamor shines with modern precision. The designer flexes his unparalleled talent in numbers like the gown made from crocodile scales that were individually cut, then numbered, bleached, dyed and re-sewed onto the garment in a process that took the sewing team 350 hours to complete.
