COVER: DIZZEE RASCAL BY BRYAN ADAMS, L’OFFICIEL HOMMES NETHERLANDS #5, SPRING/SUMMER 2013

A cover that would have been the epitome of urban chic if it were not for the ghastly subject, a cringeworthy Dizzee Rascal dons a Givenchy bomber and spitfire hooded sweatshirt on the Bryan Adams lensed cover of L’Officiel Hommes Netherlands #5.

PHOTOGRAPHY: “AURUM” BY THANANON THANAKORNKARN

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.

Aside from the stunning shot, I adore the weathered backdrop.

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.
