Haute news: Givenchy announces return to couture
After a three year hiatus, the French luxury house is returning to its couture roots

Back in 2012, Givenchy hit pause on its couture line, but it looks like the French maison has had a change of heart. At his menswear spring/summer 2016 show, creative director Riccardo Tisci announced the house's return to couture with the help of his model friends. Notable faces included Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Candice Swanepoel and Naomi Campbell, who all but stole the show in a black and silver beaded blazer and little else. The collection shown was meant to be Givenchy's fall/winter 2015 collection, but no word has been released on the maison's official return to the couture calendar this July. One thing's for certain: This is one move in fashion we'll all be watching closely.
