    From Clydesdale-type boots to pentagram-themed sweatshirts, it's clear that Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy is great at nerding out. Part sci-fi, part occult, part-superhero, Tisci's creations are like what would happen if Fashion Week took place at Comic-Con.

    For spring '14, Tisci switched gears, and instead of exploring that dark, twisted fantasy that's become so ubiquitous these days, he chose to focus more on the desert warrior look à la Frank Herbert's dune. With complicated, onion-like layers of jersey, suiting material, and a fabric that can only be described as dinosaur skin, Givenchy's spring campaign mixed Japanese and African design tropes for a futuristic, forward-looking collection (those bolt-lined plastic Tevas were also perfectly nerd-worthy). The sequined pieces also really worked (especially the copper, rust, and fire-colored striped evening looks), as well as a blanket poncho made of leather, and the ribbon dresses made from cut-apart glitter strips felt nostalgic in a déjà vu way about a youth experience that doesn't quite exist yet. Click through to geek out over all the looks.
