GIVENCHY GOES GREEN FOR PRE-SPRING 2013!

See what I did there!! *Hi 5’s self*

After rubbing myself up against Givenchy’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection in Selfridges yesterday for a good 20 minutes, (five of those minutes wasspent day dreaming of fiercely catwalking down the high street with the Madonna Print Silk Organza T-shirt & Nylon Bomber on shouting “It’s Givenchy, It’s Givenchy, It’s Givenchy, It’s Givenchy” to every passer by), you would think I couldn’t possible fall in love with the brand this season anymore than I already have done. That was until I nearly passed out from the excitement of seeing these sublime Hi-Tops from their Pre-Spring 2013 collection.

Now of course we’re not seeing anything relatively new here as the sneakers feature many of the elements from Riccardo Tisci’s two previous Givenchy mens collection – the paisley, the straps and the stars, (oh how I obsessed about those signature stars), but these are green…and green is like crack to me…and I am a green whore so naturally, I need them in my life just as much as the items I have fondled inappropriately from the main collection.

(Clockwise from top) – Givenchy Bicolour Paisley Print High-Top Leather Sneakers, Givenchy Pre-Spring 2013 White and Green Lizard High-Top Leather Sneakers, Givenchy Khaki Green Stars High-Top Leather Sneakers.

ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS…IS…ALMOST EVERYTHING FROM THE GIVENCHY MEN’S SPRING/SUMMER 2013 COLLECTION

My unrealistic wish list continues with yet another pipe dream – owning the majority of the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2013 collection before it’s even been released.

Let me just say this. I’m usually opposed to religious iconography on garments (you won’t catch me wearing a print of Lord Shiva on my shoes), but I would rock the HELL out of this entire collection.

Obviously not wanting to be greedy I specifically want the Madonna & Child Backpack (sadly nylon but still smokin’), the Madonna pring Silk Organza T-shirt  (love the extended hem at the back like the Ann Demeulmeester shirt I posted about a few months back, and anything to show off my shoulders), and finally the Madonna print Nylon (boo!) Bomber.

Evidently I’m unable to pay for any of these items but I am prepared to do things no young designer should ever do, and willing to live with the consequences of being scarred for life/become a mentally f*cked stripper/showgirl hybrid who pronounces Versace, “VerSAYCE”

Oh and for going to the trouble of destroying my own life, I want these as well.

AD CAMPAIGN: GIVENCHY AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

Instead of going for an elaborate set, special lighting or an extravagant location, Givenchy have spliced images together from their autumn winter campaign to create a hybrid model caught within an inter-dimensional musical euphoria – And oh does it work!

The clever campaign shot by duo Mert & Marcus sees models Stella Tennant, Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott and Rodrigo Braga intoxicated by the electronic beats resonating from the speakers around them in a car park. But to successfully translate this free movement into a still image, two different images of each model have been cut and pasted together creating an entirely fascinating perspective and what can only be described as a Givenchy “mutated model”.

Check out the rest of the campaign here.
