The Doberman is the precedent revision of Riccardo Tisci’s severely popular Rottweiler ‘Angry Dog’ from the not long ago Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 menswear collection. An abstract graphic digital-painted doberman face that consist of random coloured patches on a plain black cotton. It’s painterly effect refines the powerful Parisian label known for its global elegance in streetwear.
Just about a month ago, I was approached by one of the private sellers about this beautifully designed shirt, he made me an offer that I could not refuse. The shirt version of Givenchy menswear has always been my first category choice when compared to the Doberman -t-shirt, sweatshirt, jacket and accessories collection – now also available in a clutch, backpack and scarf. It was my initial choice since the inception of the Pre-Fall more than a year ago, which also means the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 Menswear Collection is due to be showcased very soon!
The Givenchy Doberman Print Cotton Poplin Shirt is not quite like my other Givenchy shirts including the most recently purchased Givenchy Naked Man-Orchid Rubber-Print Shirt from the Fall Winter 2013 collection. Besides it’s eccentric characteristics, the print houses a thicker cotton material conveying an extra touch of premium feeling than the standard cotton poplin shirts. The tricky painterly effect from its singular brush stroke design assembles the face of it’s constructed doberman print, a masterpiece though not express as gruesome as it’s rottweiler cousin gives off a dark mysterious vibe.
Frankly speaking it is not an easy shirt to mix and match, it doesn’t offer much flexibility in terms of repetition to wear due to the distinctive nature unless you have the luxury to own the entire season’s collection to play with. This uber-cool fashion shirt requires to be paired with essential black coloured bottoms to compliment it’s overpowering design, the blurry print is an understated style that further appeals attraction by the contrasting highlights in striking red and orange hues. It is a very special shirt that begs to be worn but only for weekend occasions.
