AVE MARIA! That should be the key-word for this post as the Givenchy spring/summer collection turns very spiritual and enhance the beauty of the Virgin Mary, twisting and transforming her into very a dark but still very beautiful figure.
I shall skip the whole review of the collection, – if you’ve missed it you can catch up here Paris Fashion Week Day 2 -, and get right to the point with my favourite pieces and the pricelist.
As usual we get quite a lot of prints on t-shirts and long sleeve sweaters from the quirky French Maison, one of my favourite t-shirts has got to be the Givenchy Statue of Liberty jersey t-shirt: very urban with an iconic edge, this print can’t just be gone unnoticed.
Perfect to be matched with a pair of dark coated denim and military boots, this one is one of the very few t-shirts in a regular cut size. Available @MRPORTER for £220.00 is literally a bargain; if you are a lover of Givenchy then you just cannot let this go!
The Graffiti Madonna print fleece sweatshirt is another garment that caught my eyes, oversized and all-white, it shows how creative Riccardo Tisci can be, season after season he gets more interesting and quirky. Less wearable on the street, I can see it being an all-time fave for Photographers and such. If you are interested you can find it @LUISAVIAROMA for £523.00!!!! say..WHATTT?

The Ready-to-Wear collection isn’t the only strong part of the latest show, Accessories are a massive deal for Givenchy, handbags and clutches are just a few of my favourite things.
The what-so-called “Nightingale” is crafted from supremely black leather. Very subtle and embossed with the G emblems close to the handles, this bag is big enough to be used as a weekender. Available for only £1125.00 @MRPORTER
Unmissable is the Quilted patent leather pouch bag (please look @ the picture below), perfect to carry around your little documents, phone and wallet. It reminds a bit of Chanel thanks to the diamond shaped pattern. Wait for it, as the price is even better… £303.00 for this little leather gem.
Stars make another comeback for Givenchy, and we see them this time around on many accessories, especially the wallets: My favourite is definitely the Metal star leather zip around wallet. A little bit more expensive than the pouch bag but still quite affordable.
Have you guys also noticed the jewellery line?
Forget the septum ring and say hello to the nose bridge ring. Made of Swarowsky these little rhinestones will shine bright like diamonds as Rihanna like to say in her song! Available in Pink, Red and Crystal @LUISAVIAROMA for £96.00!
