In a statement, Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton - Givenchy’s parent company - said: “The chapter Riccardo Tisci has written with the house of Givenchy over the last 12 years represents an incredible vision to sustain its continuous success, and I would like to warmly thank him for his core contribution to the house’s development.”

The designer himself said of the move: “I have very special affection for the House of Givenchy and its beautiful teams. I want to thank the LVMH group and Monsieur Bernard Arnault for giving me the platform to express my creativity over the years. I now wish to focus on my personal interests and passions.” The departure was said to be amicable.
