Givenchy Releases Sneakers Celebrating Riccardo Tisci’s 10-Year Anniversary

Riccardo Tisci is marking 10 years at Givenchy, and to celebrate, the house is releasing a special shoe: the CL Sneaker.

The sneaker also celebrates Tisci’s unofficial house muse, Chinese pop star and actress Chris Lee. This year also coincides with Lee’s 10-year anniversary in the entertainment industry.

Lee sat front row at Givenchy’s fall ’16 runway show earlier this week in Paris and has also appeared in campaigns for the house. The CL Sneaker is a special-edition version of its Tyson sneaker, featuring a “1” and “0” on each heel, with “Why Me” and “Chris Lee” on the front of each shoe.



The sneakers will be available in Givenchy stores in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
