Givenchy

Spring 12

The look Riccardo Tisci’s trademark gothic darkness was washed away to reveal a light and bright surf-inspired sports look, covered in a wave of exotic bird-of-paradise floral prints and sequined embellishment.

Key pieces Sportswear staples including baseball and bomber jackets, sequined sweat tops, muscle vests, boxy short-sleeved shirts, casual denim jackets and tailored shorts layered over leggings. Suiting was also strong, with a lean silhouette of narrow trousers and simple sb blazers.

Colours Optic white, army green with touches of soft pink and mint, and flashes of purple via prints.

Commercial appeal The printed leggings, skirts and all-over sequins may not work commercially, but the large statement prints will filter through for the youth market as part of spring 12’s strong print and pattern direction.
