The Givenchy Blue Plane Paisley Poplin Shirt25th January 2013
My new Givenchy Plane Paisley Poplin Shirt from Pre-Spring 2013 collection. Givenchy prints never fails to lure me into temptation, an impulsive purchase to begin a new year. Initially this shirt was not part of my Spring Summer 2013 wishlist, I was actually hoping to get hold of the Givenchy Fighter Sunset Oversize T-Shirt (like all of you) but is no where to be found at the moment (i’m pretty sure it will come back in stock with all sizes like the Givenchy Shark and Mermaid Oversize T-Shirt that is currently oversupply).
What is so special about this shirt?
The print is just captivating, you have to see it close-up to look at the amount of detailing that has been applied (pay attention). This requires enormous amount of effort designing such a detailed graphic, every single dot is printed in precise clarity (see below close-up photos, after Givenchy PS13 lookbook), I presume that the imitation factories will struggle to copy and produce this shirt in such precision (like always). A good reason to love it is the slim-fit, haven’t bought any slim-fit Givenchy tops since Fall Winter 2011 (Rottweiler), the slim-fit cutting compliments my body shape well. Though it felt strange as I am so used to wear columbian, oversize and regular fit from Givenchy.

By the way, you might be deciding now which colour you should go with if I have manage to entice you into buying one now (maybe not now but later when you see the below pictures). As you might know from observing the official Givenchy lookbook above, there is two colours that are available. Green and Blue, the blue comes in two varieties, short or long sleeves.
I am wearing the long sleeves blue version below. The blue colour Givenchy Plane Paisley Shirt is much more popular than the green version in reality, this was the feedback that I received from Harrolds, Melbourne (a high-end luxury menswear departmental store that carriers all my dream brands). The blue version sells out the fastest over the green. I was only planning to get the green version (much like what you are thinking about), but could not find one in my size online. When I tried the green version in Harrolds, it did not looked as good as the blue (was not my size). That is when I knew why everyone has gone for the blue version instead. Anyways, this is a personally choice.
