The dogs aren’t over yet and Riccardo Tisci brings back his secret passion for Rot-wailers and Dobermans in the pre-Fall Winter 13 collection, mixing and matching tartan checks and diamonds shapes. Maison Givenchy has always been one of my favourite designers with its casual yet chic look, and it was simply a must to do a selection of the Editor’s choice.
Starting off with the huge selection of sweaters, one of our favourites has got to be the Cuban fit printed sweater, featuring the head of a doberman in what seems to be painted with watercolours, it is easily matchable with jeans or dress it up with a pair of tailored skinny trousers – The stars are back, and just as seen in the previous collection, we predict the embroidered stars wool knitwear will be a best seller on the major online retailers such as Luisa Via Roma and Mr Porter, featuring a selection of red stars covering the collar area
From the runway show, I selected the sex print wool knitwear, a high quality knitwear jumper showing the diamonds shape and a soft-core erotic small print to add the Givenchy character to the garment. Very similar and just as interesting, the Naked woman front print cotton fleece, very daring prints to match a very daring personality.
The t-shirts are all oversized, and the tartan with the double headed doberman seems to be a guilty pleasure item for us, that specific print is also available on a plain charcoal sweater.

2) Givenchy Cuban Fit Printed Sweater £595.00
3) Givenchy Columbian Fit Printed T-shirt £435.00

The Accessories range is as usual varied and follows back the main collection, the doberman print is featured on pouches, wallets and even on the front of a Givenchy nightingale handbag.
The madonna print makes a cheeky come back on a few of the scarves/cravattes, and the print seen on the runway show shirts “Maison Givenchy” france is also printed on foulards. We really like this Fall/Winter 13 collection, it is young and very provocative, we couldn’t expect anything less from the mastermind Riccardo Tisci, could we?
