Founded in: 1952 by Hubert de Givenchy

Current designer: Riccardo Tisci

Complex says: 2012 is, without a doubt, the year of Givenchy. While it's easy to make fun of what animal the label will put on their clothing next, there's no denying the popularity of the graphics. Even artists like Waka Flocka Flame and Danny Brown have gotten in on the madness. And it seems that no matter what Tisci puts out, rappers are ready to eat it up. It's no wonder that many of them, including Swizz Beatz, P. Diddy, and Kanye West, flock to Paris to preview his new collections.
