Paris is filled with grandiose show venues, but Givenchy's choice for FW17 was something else. Le Biblioteque Nationale de France - the French national library - is a vast oval space, and tonight it was home to the creme de la creme of the fashion industry, alongside musicians, celebrities, and a shit ton of photographers, all of whom gathered to take a look at what Riccardo Tisci had up his sleeve for Givenchy.

The show's official start time coincided with Donald Trump's inauguration into the White House, so much of the show's attendees gathered around their iPhone screens with grim looks on their faces. Tisci was fashionably late, of course, and preluded the show with a minute's silence for Vogue Italy's recently-passed Franca Sozzani.

Givenchy FW17 is business as usual for the brand. Tisci's favored plush graphics, black, tartan and leather were all there, as was the usual tailoring and heavy-duty wool coats. Some luxe renditions of Vans' Sk8-Hi sported laces all the way down to the toe, while a selection of Oriental monsters were rendered in eye-popping colors.

Just like last season, the show closed with Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid marching past in a teaser of the house's forthcoming womenswear collection.

Nothing to write home about per se, but word on the street is that Tisci is on his way Versace (possibly to the house's Versus sub-label), so chances are he'll be back in the headlines soon enough.
