MILAN — First he took Manhattan.
And now Riccardo Tisci, having conquered New York Fashion Week with his poignant and buzzy spring show for Givenchy, is poised to take Milan.
Tonight, the Italian designer is to host a sprawling party at an abandoned glass factory here, marking his 10th anniversary at the helm of the Paris house and marking a major homecoming statement — a new flagship Givenchy store on the Via Montenapoleone conceived from floor to ceiling by him.

Eight-hundred-twenty tickets will be distributed first-come/first-served via registration on the dedicated Web site, givenchynyfw15.com as of 10 a.m. today. Chances are most will go to young people not in the market for a $ 29,500 jacket such as the exquisite, discreetly flamboyant military-inspired
