“Women are fighting for power not only in America but all over the world, so I wanted to do something more sensual and more powerful” – Riccardo Tisci, on Dazed Digital.
The new Givenchy SS17 campaign fashion film, directed by fashion photographers Mert and Marcus, features models in a Martian desert. The concept was inspired by the healing power of crystals, and the strength of nature.
As Ricardo Tisci recently explained,
“Being surrounded by women like Marina Abramović who believe in the power of rocks and crystals, and the power of nature to human is something that really inspired me to do this collection. We need to really look after our souls and it’s something that I’m working on myself.”
The fashion campaign fashion film apparently is the story of “a young Parisian girl comes out of a club after a rave party and gets lost on a trip on Mars.”

Madonna recently announced her fashion collaborators for the Rebel Heart Tour. As stated by WWD, these include Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang, as well as Gucci creative director Allesandro Michele.
Given her recent video for “Bitch I’m Madonna” and her latest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Madonna’s choice to work with Jeremy Scott for Moschino should come as no surprise. Alexander Wang also makes an an appearance in the video. Scott’s collaborated with Madonna for several of her tours, including her recent MDNA and Sticky and Sweet tours.

Madonna’s also chosen Prada and Miu Miu boots and shoes to be part of the Rebel Heart wardrobe, as they have in past tours. Notables missing from the Rebel Heart fashion roster are Versace, Gaultier and Givenchy. Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci dressed Madonna for the Sticky and Sweet tour and her 2012 Super Bowl XLVI performance.
The pop singer’s predilection for some of these names has been evident for a while: she wore Scott for Moschino to the Costume Institute gala in May, on the red carpet as well as to various after parties, for instance. And she was also in full Moschino regalia in her last video, “B**ch I’m Madonna,” where Wang made an exuberant cameo. Before that, she was spotted around town wearing the platform moon boots from Wang’s fall show, practically straight off the runway.
Curiously, Versace, in whose 2015 advertising campaign Madonna appeared, is not involved in this tour. Phillips, who has been nominated for two Oscars, including her work on Madonna’s own “W.E.,” is marking her sixth tour with Madonna and will also contribute costumes.
Some of the other designers, though, like Michele, are more surprising, underscoring the singer’s knack for spotting new talent.
