Givenchy Channeled Dennis the Menace With Timely Sneakers

The ready-to-wear element of Givenchy’s men’s fall 2017 collection that was presented today at Paris Fashion Week was oft a complicated proposition.

It started simple enough, but soon gave way to a dizzying array of trompe l’œils and op-art effects with stripes and plaids.

Traditional clothing was repurposed with sweaters becoming scarves and new garments created.

So when it came to the footwear, it was for good reason that Riccardo Tisci opted to keep things simple: black sneakers with white laces. They were done the Givenchy way, of course, with a stylized curvature to the eyelets and laces in perfectly horizontal lines mirroring the stripes of those Dennis the Menace-style sweaters.

A selection from women’s pre-fall 2017 made up the rear, but lest it appear an afterthought, Tisci requisitioned the services of models of the moment, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Kendall’s look? Top-to-toe gingham — with tights and ankle booties to match her frock.
