on stage


Givenchy has signed a costume for globally renowned singer Rihanna for her Diamonds World Tour. At the debut concert, the public got its first look at the creations custom-designed for the artist by Riccardo Tisci.

With an air of mysterious elegance, Rihanna hit the stage in a spectacular black ruffled cape in silk crepe sporting rich 3D embroideries on the collar. The cape came off to reveal a three-piece costume in a deft mix of streetwear and haute couture.

The oversized masculine parka reprised the iconography of the Givenchy men’s fall/winter 2013 collection. The delicate embroideries of geometric motifs echoed the black and white nappa leather bra amped up with gold buckles and softened by the silk satin mini-shorts in a matching print.

A range of Givenchy accessories completed the star’s urban, sophisticated ensemble. The gold necklace with shark’s tooth pendant and military plaque, gold metallic sunglasses, and white crystal ear studs finished off the look for the performer who Riccardo Tisci calls the “face of her generation”.
