The main design from this season derives from the basketball itself, there are speculations that the material print based design – the Givenchy Brown Basketball Print Columbian-Fit Sweatshirt is the iconic print of the season, and will take off as much like the Givenchy Gray Baseball Print Columbian-Fit Sweatshirt from Fall Winter 2013, predicts to share similar success in the marketplace. And if you’re a fanatic of this brand, why not team up the sweatshirt with the Givenchy Black Possom-Fur Hooded Cotton Canvas Puffer Jacket that could be transformed into a variety of styles as the sleeves and lower panel can be detached to be made into a casual sleeveless-jacket.
Evident basketball inspirations translated into footwear category includes the Givenchy Star-Detail Basketball Tyson Leather High-Top Sneaker, which features the orange-brown ball material replicated within the shoe itself, an explicit detailing that will draw remarkable attention including the stars appliqué velcro ankle straps. Tailored focus button down shirts with a touch of exquisite detailing includes the Givenchy Metal-Insert Collar-Detail Cotton Poplin Shirt that was extracted from Fall Winter 2013, now available in black-inserts. There is an extraordinary white cotton shirt that has been assembled through careful precision, zipped embellishments depicting the basketball’s grooves has influenced the creation of the frankenstein Givenchy Basketball Zipped Cotton Columbian-Fit Shirt. For those who would wish to live within the comfort zone can choose the Givenchy Multicolour Abstract Basketball Print Columbian-Fit Sweatshirt that has a graphic brush artwork inspired from the basketball sport movements, alternatively available in a Columbian-Fit T-Shirt in black.
While fall winter lies heavily focused on layering and the experimentation of special materials, the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2014 menswear collection is currently feeding off it’s main graphic print — the Elmerinda and Rottweiler. Both prints were earlier introduced in Spring Summer 2009 and Pre-Fall 2011 has been remade into fame! So much so that the Givenchy Elmerinda Tattoo Gotika Print Cuban-Fit T-Shirt has been sold out within a few days of availability at Luisa Via Roma, and now has been replenished with a Columbian-Fit cut. The Elmerinda is one very special print that features many undisclosed characteristics expressed by the creative designer himself, the name ‘Elmerinda’ was given by Riccardo Tisci’s mother’s first name. The tattoo script feature across the collar-bone in Spanish phrase “El Dolor Pasa La Dignidad Perdura” translates to “Pain Passes, but Dignity Lasts,” or “Pain is fleeting, while dignity endures.” there is something along those lines that is little known.
