Wow. We love that Riccardo Tisci has selected Erykah Badu as the new face of Givenchy’s Spring 2014 collection. Apparently, Tisci even had her in mind when designing the line which he says has “African and Japanese influences”:
“Erykah, she’s an icon–come on!” Tisci said by phone from Paris. “What I want to do with my advertising campaign is spread the love. Already now it’s been three seasons that I’ve been using people that express something–they are great artists, or beautiful women, or stylish women, or models that I really believe in. It’s kind of a family portfolio.”
Great choice. Check out a larger version of the B&W photo after the jump!
