Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 Menswear at Antonioli

20th November 2014

Antonioli has recently launched their new Givenchy Pre-Spring 2015 and Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 menswear collection for advance pre-order, shop yours here or continue reading the following. The first batch of 2015 collection is set to be delivered and dropped in stores by mid of February and April 2015.

After endless hours of work accommodating Antonioli’s tasteful range of Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 menswear below, I have fallen deeply in love with this extravagance collection and realized the importance of Tisci’s concept revisiting his initial roots that recalled the very first catwalk endeavour.

There are two separate key series to distinguish the ambiguous Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 menswear collection. The first two main key series are the ‘Black / White Floral Effects’, also known as gypsophila in details, most encrusted with scintillating pearl-studded contrast embroidery. However these are mainly for runway presentation purposes and most of the studded embroidered pieces will go into very limited production at an exclusive offering. Therefore the floral effects collection are primarily offered in print substitutes as available below from Antonioli.

The secondary key series that houses a much larger collection are the ‘Black / White Contrast Striped Panelled’ series, a rooted collection re-introduction from the starting point of Tisci’s career exploring the innovative use of basic geometry, will be his upcoming signature series over the distinct star coding. It is a swift change to a complete different path than the one he’s already taken, imagine no monumental prints – Rottweilers, Sharks, Madonnas and even the Bambis will be extinct from this collection onwards. The purpose is to focus in tailoring efforts and layered with an artistic sense of contrast monochromatic panelling at the highest geometry austerity, the concept conveys a mix of street style and sports influence reformation.

Take a second or third look at these simple wardrobe staples translated into graceful masterpieces, I will definitely try to grapple most of the runway pieces. The Givenchy Spring Summer 2015 menswear collection certainly felt enough of a fresh start to spark speculation about possible future directions for the designer.

    Since there's no monumental prints, which ones do you think would become the best seller from this collection ?

    • The black floral print series will do well, as most customers will related this closely with the main runway collection. i'm expecting it to be selling out as consist as the past Givenchy robot collection.

    hi Maurice thanks for posting…
    why do you prefer the black version floral than the white?
    you don't like the sweater?
    just ask that cause of the rate you give…(with stars), just curiosity…
    i know you like shirt, this one is very nice….but i prefer the pink short sleeve version of last year.(sorry for my english)

    • The black floral abstract print has a nice contrast, just at a quick glance you could tell that they are micro flowers, while the white one doesn't quite define the subject since the contrast has been converted, making it look even more ambiguous.

      For this collection, I will only be investing in the black floral print series, and maybe the white floral print with panelled shirt since it has a nice balance.

      Will talk about my wishlist by the beginning of next month when Luisa Via Roma releases their pre-order. :)

    Black boots should have a lock on the zipper on the side, and so should be inferred.
    Otherwise dressing these shoes is very uncomfortable!
    I think in the next version should do a zip lock in these shoes.

    • You mean the white lace brogue boots?

    Hi, your price stated, USD?

    • Hi yes, all prices are in USD since it is the global standard, the EU prices varies among countries.

    What a disappointing collection… even the most profitlable T-shirt, the design totally no heart… just wondering if RT is leaving soon, that's why…

    • No no my friend, take a good look first. This collection will be very successful, I think most of us are getting tired of the prints, there is a certain aesthetic here. At first I felt the same like you, but after looking through carefully, there are many beautiful pieces, except its quite pricey to pay for a simple shirt with a few striped panellings. But still… its the brand we are all paying for right? lol

      I don't think you know Givenchy more than me, even this collection does have some nice pieces but can't help, the sales will further drop for sure…

      I agree with Maurice here. This is the best collection in a long time. I have been collecting Givenchy pieces since Tisci's first collection. SS 2015 reminds me a little bit of Tisci's first. Would love to buy one of the floral t-shirts with the beads and florals sewn on. But I guess those will cost a small fortune in their stores in Paris. One can always dream 😉

    The only item I was lookin' forward to but is the floral boots ;'( and they're not available. so dissapointed

    • Floral boots? But why?

      I want the low top version
      hope they will release it
      i did not get this too (looks like a devil at some point)
      https://dl0etnkjmn0ix.cloudfront.net/products/87205/large/15S7303653_001_999_4.jpg?1416842084
      What do you think of the print.
      The pre collection looks weak except for the Rottweiler with the stars
      not sure about it, even the paisley t-shirts with the butterflies looks funny compared to the plane theme released before.

    • The minotaur x statue collage print resembles a demon, if you are a church goer you probably will not be able to accept this print. But in my opinion, I like it as its quite attractive. It is much better than the previous minotaur collage prints.

      Overall the pre-collection is quite weak, however the womenswear has a hot selling print – Bambi Madonna Shark collage, lots of consumers are hoping Givenchy will take this to the menswear category.

      Stay away from the butterflies.

      Thank Maurice for your reply.
      I am not a religious persons but i find it a bit offensive (although it is sold out at antonioli – the tee version) and what i noticed that people look at the Givenchy prints in a different way (either they ask what the print is about or they ask why do you wear only black with prints on the tees – looool). Here comes the point that not all people know about the brand or its value or even appreciate the design (it is a style rather than being stylish).
      Any black pants or shorts with any t-shirt from Givenchy and you are done (play it safe get an arena black sneakers).
      I don't know why when i wear my Elmerinda print tee all the people start starring at it, maybe they are trying to get what the print resembles or curious about the details or simply saying what the hell he is wearing.
      Remember in your sneak peak you showed a white Madonna Tee any idea if it is under menswear or?
      Mostly all retailers started the sale now (sale or promo codes).
      Maybe in the first week of December Lvr will go live for pre-orders (although for this season they did not sell anything that is more exclusive compared to other online stores – so i am not willing to pay that exclusivity price difference they are charging).

    • Not everyone will understand Givenchy's designs. I was like you at first, my first Givenchy print t-shirt was the Fall Winter 2011 Rottweiler print. At first, I was thinking why this t-shirt so popular, selling out everywhere by the minute. It was a pricy t-shirt too back then, who would be paying $260 USD for a t-shirt while you can find other luxury designers selling around $150 back then.

      But I went ahead and bought it, didnt regret a bit and wore it every time I have the chance. It was my most used Givenchy t-shirt i have ever owned, but I took real good care of it. Everyday people just stare at the print, they ask me why is the dog so angry, they are puzzle why would anyone wear such a t-shirt. But then I realized it was not the style or how the print manage to get people's attention… it was the emotion and the meaning behind it, it draw people to notice and make them think and reflect the concept. That is what I like about Givenchy, same goes with your Elmerinda. Although I did not get one myself, I recently saw someone wearing it and it does look attractive, everything in Givenchy is very dark and emotionally designed by Tisci.

      Either way, it is also the joy to own these awesome t-shirt, who care if Alexander McQueen is selling their printed tee's for half the price, you wont get back the same value as what you're paying for Givenchy. The pride is always there when you love the brand, and of course the resell value if you buy the right pieces. At the end of the day, its how you look at it.

      Yes the white Madonna print is mens, you can find it at Trends Boutique in Russia.

      Waiting for LVR to go live with SS15 too :) cant wait!

    I wanted the runway boots cause they were kind of different and sophisticated and can wear it with jeans or dress pants and for different occasions. I'm done buying sneakers. I dont own a nice pair of boots. I have bought a pair of shoes/sandals from every Givenchy collection since '09. I had my eyes on those since I saw your post a while ago.

    Rafa 😉

    • Ooo, I would love to see your entire footwear collection! Can you show us? 😛

      Yes I can! I'd love to! But I do not think I can upload a shot here

    • Can send it to my email at ask.drblogspot@gmail.com

      It's hard to find people who shares great enthusiasm on the brand for so many years, and also one who has a historical collection at home.

    How do you and how would you take care of the expensive tees, stretching, collars becoming lose, how to wash etc, hanging or folding? And how long does one actually last?
