“Liiiiving in a Givenchy world// And I’m a Givenchy girl”. Madonna didn’t sing those exact lyrics, but that’s what has been going through my head since Monday, since learning that LuisaViaRoma.com are now stocking practically the WHOLE menswear Spring Summer 2013 collection.
And talking of Madonna, the religious type adorn most of the collection. You might have noticed when I snuck in to their London HQ for a closer look that it was a rather… religious collection!
Order now people, it won’t be in stock for long.
Here’s some of my fav pieces…
I’ve waxed lyrical about Givenchy for quite a while now, about how Tisci’s autumn winter collection full with Rottweiler’s summed up the season for me, and how his spring summer 2012 birds of paradise amazingness nearly sent me over the edge. Do you remember? Course you do!
Well, lovely reader, the time has come to actually SHOP the SS2012 birds of paradise collection, courtesy of Luisaviaroma.com. Well you can pre-order it, but that’s just as dangerous because you pay now and receive later (March 15th to be precise), which means you forget you’ve spent the money and just presume some lovely stranger/stalker has sent you fabulous gifts!
Anyway, I must urge you all to at least have a look at the stuff. I saw it up close a few weeks back and was literally speechless. I know I like to turn on the dramatics, but ’tis true!
Printed shoulder shirt, £363.48
Printed shorts (NEED THEM), £902.27
…let it be this AMAZING Givenchy rottweiler sweater! It’s probably one of the best things I’ve seen for us boys for autumn/winter… scary but gorgeous yet high fashion. It comes at a price though, at £1040 I probably won’t be rushing out to buy it just yet. But if YOU do, can I borrow it please??
I don’t know why I do it to myself, but browsing www.luisaviaroma.com has become one of my favourite pastimes. In a dream like state, I imagine owning everything on the site, racking up my imaginary shopping basket total to thousands!
Having just scrolled through their new-in section for both men and women, there are new season shoes that are quite simply a must for everyones wardrobes!
