On Our Radar: Givenchy’s Seventeen Watch-------
After a breakneck six months—a standout show, chairing the Met Gala, a CFDA honor—you might expect Riccardo Tisci to slow down for a bit. Evidently not. Word came over the transom today of his first watch for Givenchy, the unisex, stainless-steel Seventeen (so named for the prime number; prime numbers, the logic goes, are “mysterious yet powerful,” just like the Givenchy aesthetic). The style will come in six color combinations, including black, red, green, steel, and gold, with interchangeable straps in raw-edged leather and grosgrain. They’ll retail for $770 to $890 when they come to Givenchy boutiques, as well as some specialty stores, worldwide.
