Givenchy Pre-Fall 2013

givenchy_002_1366.450x675This collection makes it official that the furkenstocks (or any other name you have for the horrible slippers) and white soles are here to stay a little longer than expected. Riccardo Tisci set the tone of the collection as masculine to the maximum – after the prettiness of the fall collection, he took the high road again and turned Givenchy back to its edgy self. Color blocks, optical geo prints (which I still reconcile with DVF) and assymetrical cuts are the style codes of the collection – whereas ruffles enhance the drama at this absurd androgenous play. No slim fits, no mini skirts, no regular suits or pretty shoes – everything in this pre-fall collection is set to surprise and disturb. I am disturbed Riccardo, but not by the collections – by the recurring nightmares I’ve been having since Nicholas left Balenciaga, the nightmares about you leaving Givenchy. Please don’t go anywhere.
