Famous for it’s ultimate brand recognition, the fire-breathing monster that is the Givenchy Rottweiler has been lying dormant for a few seasons, but now it is back and available for the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 menswear collection with a whole new attitude. Many thanks to Boombayeh from eBay, I am now a proud owner of this ever popular and highly demanded Givenchy t-shirt.
Not known for it’s subtle impact, the new Givenchy Rottweiler automatically commands attention with it’s aggressive features of a gigantic snarling dog which is normally a giveaway of something indignant lurking within the legendary impressionist print by creative director, Riccardo Tisci. At the back, there is the Givenchy signature perpendicular cross-stitch seams that cherishes back to the models of the old, giving the impression that this is as delirious as it was once before. See the first Givenchy Rottweiler Print T-Shirt through this blog.
The Givenchy Rottweiler is rough and ready, first offered in the Givenchy Fall Winter 2011 menswear and has already seen numerous series including a Givenchy Doberman edition that is still readily available at Luisa Via Roma since the start of the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2013 menswear collection. The powerful print encourages you to take full advantage of it’s fire-breathing nature and pairs well with matching black bottoms or even layering the looks to highlight a little of it’s key characteristics.
Being really fussy, the print is a bit vague which was never a complain in earlier versions, it seems that the head print has been fully blown-up from a JPEG compressed image and has left signs of pixelations, despite this, the mega command of attention delivered to onlookers makes one become acclimate quite quickly. Negative points that are not so easily to overlook include the price, it’s $250 to $300 more expensive than before and the similarly priced Givenchy Robot Striped Print T-Shirt now on sale offers a better well-rounded value. Then there is question of the repetition of wear, although the Givenchy Rottweiler has been known to be notoriously famous for holding it’s seasonal relevance “worn till death” in the fashion universe, it doesn’t exactly go with everything else in the wardrobe or makes your life easier, it requires thought. The rewarding experience of wearing it is quite substantial at the beginning, however after taking it out all day could be a bit tiring especially at the end of the season.
But if you really love your Rottweilers, you will love this one because it feels well connected with the Givenchy animal pedigree roots, it will not fail to make you smile when you wear it and it feels more grown up with it’s enormous oversized print that flows across the sleeves. Do take a look at it’s similar offerings available in the same print, there is a new Givenchy Black Rottweiler Print Columbian-Fit Sweatshirt earlier added in Farfetch, an earlier available Givenchy Grey Rottweiler Print Columbian-Fit Sweatshirt, a Givenchy Rottweiler Print Columbian-Fit T-Shirt, and even a premium Givenchy Rottweiler Embroidered Wool Sweater. With so much diversification for style, it is made to cover all your daily needs. Find out where you can buy them below!
