Givenchy White & Black Trompe Loeil Contrast Shirt

4th May 2013
When it comes to Givenchy menswear in general, majority of the fashion enthusiast will recall the eccentricity of religion, wild angry animals with sharp fangs, blossoming plants themes and not to forget – men’s skirts. The Givenchy Spring Summer 2013 was no doubt a commercial success as Riccardo Tisci has offered us a variety of prints from various price points – making Givenchy widely affordable in the luxury designer market.
Today, I want to share with you something different, apart of advertising the latest prints, I have recently been attracted towards this particular design. So much so that some may say have I developed some sort of chemistry, in other words it is like love at first sight. Not too long ago, I first saw the Givenchy White and Black Trompe L’oeil Contrast Shirt on SSENSE.com. The white and black contrast is well presented with a good flow of  framework, what I liked most is where the black incorporates the white. To my surprise, such an eye candy design was not featured on Givenchy Menswear Spring Summer 2013 Runway. Perhaps it doesn’t assent the overall direction of the season.

Such a simple shirt that features two different cotton texture cost more than a bold Givenchy Fighter or Madonna Print T-Shirt, it took me a while to consider as this was priced premium. One fine weekend at Pavilion Shopping Center Kuala Lumpur, I spotted this shirt displayed in Givenchy. I seize the opportunity to try it in person and soon realize it was a regular fit but closer towards an oversize at chest width. Despite the loose fit, this shirt has bait me into temptation but I resisted to open my wallet. As you may know now, I hardly buy in store because I know there are better deals elsewhere… hehe. The price for this shirt at Givenchy Pavilion Malaysia cost 2,530 MYR, matching SSENSE’s price tag at $835. I went back this week, but did not see this shirt on display. My guess is, it may have been sold out.

I had some thoughts that this Givenchy White and Black Shirt resembles the Audi RS5 by OSS Design and Vossen.

    very nice! though, i would drop the sneakers for some shoes.

    • Let me get some new shoes 😛

  • Hi Maurice are u back in kl to vote?
    BTW the pavilion Givenchy store has the red fire fighter jet tee in L and M at RM3600 but they never display it and is only shown to regulars.

    • I didnt register in time. :(
      Thats pretty expensive, it was only around $950 at Luisa Via Roma. Size M and L is way too big

  • ya actually RM 3600 is WAYYY to expensive for a tee

    • 3600 can buy a Thom Browne suit during sale, and still save some cash. This suit will attract even more looks than the Givenchy red fighter t-shirt.
