Beyoncé and Jay-Z launched the international leg of their On the Run II tour in Cardiff last week and revealed costumes designed in collaboration with French fashion house Givenchy.
For the tour, Givenchy’s artistic sirector Clare Waight Keller has created exclusive outfits inspired largely by her spring/summer 2018 Haute Couture collection, the fashion house said in a press release, with the pieces featuring design elements including hand-embroidered motifs crystal grids.
Highlights includes Beyoncé’s finale look, where Waight Keller created a bodysuit with an oversized bow detail adapted from the autumn/winter 2018 ready-to-wear collection, paired with a long, detachable skirt in bonded lace, hand-embroidered with crystals.
While for Jay-Z’s opening look, he wore an optical white, double-breasted tuxedo worn with a matt silk t-shirt, featuring sharp-shoulder detailing, which was adapted from the Givenchy spring/summer 2018 men’s Haute Couture collection.
This isn’t the first time Givenchy has teamed up with the duo, the Parisian fashion house also designed their costumes for the first On the Run tour.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s On the Run II tour is scheduled to play 48 dates in Europe and North America until October 4, 2018.
