GIVENCHY STORE OPENING TOKYO WITH RICCARDO TISCI & NAOMI CAMPBELL

本日5月16日、LVMHグループのオフィス&ファッションビル「ONE表参道」にオープンした「GIVENCHY(ジバンシィ)」の旗艦店にて、オープンに先駆けレセプションパーティー(昨夜)が開催された。ファッション関係者はもちろん、多くの著名人がこぞって集結したほか、クリエイティブ・ディレクター、ディカルド・ティッシュとスーパーモデルのナオミ・キャンベルがこの日のために来日。2005年にジバンシィのウィメンズ・オートクチュール及びプレタポルテ・コレクションのクリエイティブ・ディレクターに就任。その3年後には、メンズ・クリエイティブ・ディレクターに就任してハイエンドなストリートクチュールを披露し続けているリカルド・ティッシュ。リカルド・ティッシュが就任して日本初のストアとなる「GIVEMCHY OMOTESANDO STORE」は、地下にメンズと1階にアクセサリー、2階にウィメンズ・コレクションと3フロア構成になっている。2階に上がれば世界各国でプレイする2人の兄弟クリス&スティーヴ(The Martinez Brothers)が会場を盛り上げていた。The Martinez Brothersは、リカルドのお気に入りのDJなのは言うまでもなく、過去にジバンシィの音楽も担当している。VOGUE JAPANファッション・ディレクター、アンナ・デッロ・ルッソにコンデナストファミリー、VOGUE JAPAN編集長、コンデナスト・インターナショナル会長(CEO)ジョナサン・ニューハウスと、ラグジュアリーグループLVMHのエグゼクティブと共に楽しいひと時を過ごした。

ストアを後に向かった先は、西麻布のFREQ.で開催されたアフターパーティー会場だった。ここでもThe Martinez Brothersによるプレイで会場は既に満員状態。いつぶりだろうか。”東京ファッションシーン”が一つの箱に集まりラグジュアリーブランドのアフターで熱気をムンムンにしてはオープンバーをエンジョイしている。リカルドは、7年ぶりの日本をとても楽しみにしていたんだ。と語ってくれた。表参道でしか手に入れない限定アイテムも発売されているので是非足を運んでみるべし(それにしてもゴージャスだったナオミ・キャンベル)。

GIVENCHY feted the opening of their Japan Flagship last night in Tokyo with a party attended by GIVENCHY’s Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci and muse Naomi Campbell. Part of a renewal of LVMH’s Omotesando building, GIVENCHY is perfectly placed… this is Tokyo’s Street Fashion runway and has played host to many a Tisci Designed Shark, Rottweiler, Madonna & Child printed T Shirts over the years. The bright marble interior of the store welcomed the Designer last night with beats from GIVENCHY House DJ’s The Martinez brothers who were joined in the booth by a STUNNING Naomi Campbell. VOGUE JAPAN’s Anna Della Russo was in attendance for what was a Conde Nast family affair – Vogue Japan’s Editor in Chief Mitsuko Watanabe, Fashion Director Gene Krell, Chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International Joanthan Newhouse all joined the heads of LVMH’s luxury powerhouses who mingled with models, actors and assembled press.

The After-Party was held at FREQUENCY (formerly ELEVEN – before that YELLOW). The Martinez Brother’s got the packed club dancing, the open bar aiding an air of excitement the Tokyo Fashion Scene was experiencing for the first time in a while. Sat in a booth with Model and Actress Rila Fukushima, Kozue Akimoto, Yoon (AMBUSH®), Baby Mary and Naomi (impossibly beautiful) Riccardo told us this was his first trip to Japan in 7 years, he was enjoying meeting lots of new people as well as shooting with Araki that afternoon. Tokyo definitely enjoyed having him here.
