Designer Ricardo Tisci looked to women (in general) and also Indian women (for his accessories) for the Givenchy “men’s wear” collection for Fall / Winter 2012-2013, which was recently previewed in Paris.

The Italian-born Creative Director of the legendary French fashion House, sent his male models out on to the runway with clip-on nose-rings, similar to what our very own tribal women wear.

And if that’s not enough, just like Jean Paul Gaultier, he too sent his models out in skirts – pleated and worn just above the knee, most of the time!

The models wore leggings below the skirts and added clunky boots and footwear for a masculine touch.

Even though they may be loosely modeled on a Scottish kilt or on the grab of the ancient Roman Gladiator, the fact is that skirts for men are a big trend for next winter.

Time to raid the wife’s closet, dudes!
