Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 Footwear and Accessories

In the prevalent Spring Summer 2015, Riccardo Tisci reveals a dark and romantic side of the Givenchy man. A strong, masculine and military-inspired look is counterbalanced by tender touches evoking a celebration of love and religion.

The Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 menswear collection had an early start this season and commenced since late January 2015. While it is not only limited to the sophisticated sartorial ready-to-wear, the collection extends profoundly with an abundance of elegant streetwear accessories and footwear assortments, mainly attributed from the prevailing floral icon of the season.

Tiny delicate white flowers of Gypsophila, or Baby’s Breath is what maison Givenchy would prefer to define as – is a small group of dainty floral doses composed into an artistic abstract forms which shapes the forefront collection. The Gypsophila derives from the meaning of pure of heart or innocence, perhaps that is why they are often found as vital parts at traditional weddings celebrations. When set against a pitch black background, it constructs a high visual contrast that creates a significant impact in appearance and ambiguity, hence the unique iteration codes of the dark romance.

It is not surprise for any fashion capitalist to find desirability just by observing the current Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 footwear and accessories, as the extensive collection enjoys a wealthy Gypsophila graphic diversification offered across various print sizes and contrast colours to choose from that will evidently appeal to numerous taste buds. Perhaps one of the most eminent accessories across the range is the highly recognizable Givenchy’s Coated Canvas Zipped Pouch which throughout recent years has seen favourable success across fashion societies due its aspirational affordability. Opt for the Givenchy Medium Black Floral Gypsophila Elastic-Band Pouch as the ‘medium’ floral print in black variant gratifies the perfect cluster balance between masculinity and feminism. Its unique selling point is the incorporation of the elastic band strap that not only contributes to its functional use, but enacts a significant role in design as well.

Another exceptional example from the floral series is the Givenchy Black Floral Gypsophila Tyson High-Top Sneakers. To be honest, I have never yearn for Givenchy’s Tyson sneakers as the silhouette was initially inspired by Nike’s Air Force 1 Sneakers, and personally I have never been a fan of sportswear since the beginning of time. However I find that the Gypsophila graphic print on the Tyson sneakers highly coveted and I am considering to purchase my first pair, so should you. For those who has a singular taste may enjoy the pearl adorned or knee-high Givenchy Commando Lace-Up Boots extended in grained leather or the notorious floral print option, you have to be a daredevil to pull this off. It is not common for label to produce knee-high boots as the last production came from the Givenchy ‘Rottweiler’ Fall Winter 2011 menswear collection.

Sandals are conceivably more relevant and practical towards this season, and rest assure you won’t be disappointed as there are a handful of re-established from previous seasons, including the Givenchy Rubber-Effect Zipped Calf-Leather Skate Sandals which closely reference from the Givenchy Spring Summer 2012 footwear collection. More recent, one of the most renowned series that has been converted as part of the classic collection is the Givenchy Palladio Chain Leather Sandals, an exciting new mid-top variant is offered for this season with an extra additional ankle top chain strap. Derived from the Givenchy Spring Summer 2013 menswear collection, it was initially proposed as a runway prototype but never went into commercial production due to earlier mass manufacturing complications. Read more about the commercially available Givenchy Palladio Chain Detail Black Leather Sandals from Pre-Spring 2014.

The Stars & Stripes is attributed as one of the most acclaimed house codes that has triumph the label since its inception. In this season, the American inspired insignia remains generous across a field of accessories, most notably the contrast patent white star and black stripe set against the smooth neoprene fabric. How I would love to own the Givenchy Black Star & Stripe Neoprene Backpack, a simplistic classic piece that reflects the label’s irreverent style. Other equally desirable pieces from the Stars & Stripes collection included the American Flag embossed leather series offered in a wallet selection and zipped pouch are detailed pieces with an alternative subtle appeal.

It’s seems like it has been quite a while since Tisci last introduced a concrete abstract floral collection, however the last rendition dated not long ago during the Givenchy ‘Favelas’ Pre-Spring 2014 menswear collection and the more distinguished Givenchy ‘Birds of Paradise’ Spring Summer 2012 menswear collection. There is no doubt in return to the floral roots, the comparable notion towards the similar seasons will generate a fruitful success. On the other hand, unpredictably the colour palettes are restricted to black and white which subvert from majority of the leading designers that would customarily lean towards bright colours for this season. But despite the monochromatic palette that reflects the Fall Winter mood, the Gypsophila collection will continue to last for ages across many season to come.

    Beautiful… Love the white with black flowers.. Very soft yet powerful emotions.

    By the way.. I stained my white Givenchy shirt with some rubbing against tables on my forearms, some sauce at the wrists, some brown spot on the shoulders, how do you normally wash them, hot water, cold water, how do you hang them dry? And how do you wash them these stains off? :(

    • In your case, you need a pre-wash detergent. There is a renowned tested brand called Vanish Pre-Wash Stain Remover, basically you will need to spray it on the affected surface and leave it for a minute before you hand wash it.

      However…. if it is colour transfer then the only way is to bleach the fabric, provided it is white :(

    How much do the ties usually cost? I can't find it on any online retailed?! I'm scared they will be sold out once available?

    • They are quite hard to find, because its not very sellable. For the basic colours is around $150, and prints are around $275. You may be able to find them on SSENSE soon, keep checking their website as they usually stock the Givenchy printed ties.

    Everything is TO DIE FOR!!!!!!!!!
    I purchase every season a pair of Givenchy shoes. Don't know which ones i'ma get from this one yet!
    Can't believe they made the palladio sandals with a third strap like the runway ones!…because I already bought the other ones!!!! :/
    Keep up the good work maurice!!! Love your detailed speech about the brand! Givenchy is my favourite brand ever…it's been since 2009!
    I think I need to get me the floral bots or the black ones with the pearls!
    Rafa, Japan :-)

    • Hi Rafa,

      Good to hear that you enjoyed the blog post. I would go for this pair of high-top sneakers, the floral print is very lovely, it is similar to the Pre-Spring 2013 fighter paisley, but I felt that this pair is much better, you should definitely get it!

      http://bit.ly/1zuCuJj

      Yes unfortunately they came up with the 3 tier strap chain sandals, which I have also bought the other one last year :(

    I am hoping to get the pearl boots, the belt and the tie.
    The Tyson High-tops are so everrated! It's the only G accesory i'd never purchase. My friends owns a pair and it is so difficult to style with pants or jeans because its cut!
    But yes that print is very lovely, one of my favourites after bambi and virgin mary!
    Rafa 😉

    • In this case, I feel this is not too bad either despite its simplicity.

      As for the Tyson sneakers, I feel it really depends what you wear with it, black jeans tucked inside the shoe would definitely look good, but its entirely up to you :)
