Essential: Givenchy Richelieu shoes

SCENE STEELER. Riccardo Tisci never seems lacking of gothic inspirations.

At least for Givenchy’s fall/winter collection, he expresses his sinister design personality in distinct nuances of black, grey and a hint of metal on the runway.

On a closer look, that very shine comes from the shoes—a pair of the buckled ones to be exact. Using black leather combined with silver metal buckles, the particular Richelieu pair also comes in a striking black variation. Props to Tisci’s brilliance in giving the shoes a couture touch that’s fancy and dandy to match any formal ensemble.
