Belstaff & Liv Tyler’s AW’16 Capsule Collection

August 3, 2016

She may be better known for her acting roles and for her face and grace fronting the campaigns of Givenchy make-up and fragrance cruelly replaced by Amanda Seyfried in 2013. But Liv didn’t let that get her down. Instead, she’s worked closely with the brand that is the epitome of British biker chic, Belstaff, working […]

Gucci Menswear Cruise 2017

May 22, 2016

I couldn’t let Alessandro Michele’s latest menswear outing pass without comment. Having been quite vocal about Gucci’s new direction, if you can call Michele’s particular brand of faux vintage “new”, I’ve had to eat my words. Not much, a bite-size portion of attrition. Apparently inspired by the English eccentricity, and Gucci’s forthcoming Cruise show in […]

Tisci’s New York Givenchy Triumph – SS’16

September 12, 2015

Givenchy upcamped and showed in New York in preparation, no doubt, for the opening of the latest Givenchy store in the city where so many of Riccardo Tisci’s Givenchy clad celebs reside. It seemed fitting, then, that Tisci tastefully (what else?) choose to show a large collection ode not only to the triumphs from his […]

Jungle Boogie – Balmain Menswear Spring/Summer 2016

June 30, 2015

It’s hard to imagine where the modern French fashion industry would be without American hip-hop. So beholden in fact that Paris stalwart Givenchy has just announced that it will show its Spring/Summer 2016 women’s collection during New York Fashion Week in September. Whilst Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing eschews the straight-up streetwear homages oft seen […]

Face Jewellery Faces Off with Fornasetti’s L’Eclaireuse Candle

May 3, 2015

  One of the shows that took Paris fashion week by storm was Givenchy’s severely sensual, beautiful take on Jesuit Victoriana meets Chilean Chola girl gang.

Chutzpah’s Barometer

May 3, 2015

LOVING Superdry x Idris Elba – Whilst Abercrombie flounders (see below), their British counterpart has been savvy enough to team up with the British acting icon for Autumn/Winter 2015. Donatella – Hubert may be spinning in his grave, but Givenchy’s new campaign starring Donatella Versace and creative director Riccardo Tisci is both inspired and captivating. […]

Givenchy’s Cuir Blanc

March 29, 2015

Boom! I knew it had arrived with its sweet bowl-you-over waft of loveliness seeping through the packaging.  Cuir Blanc is a sparkling, addictive line of white narcotic joy wrapped in expensive new handbag leather. It’s white pepper on white musk on white leather layers all add a little bit of difference. Pristine and elegance personified. […]

Givenchy’s Couture Fragrance – Néroli Originel

May 26, 2014

It’s a wonder that Givenchy didn’t enter this market sooner. Whereas we’ve had Chanel’s Les Exclusifs and Dior’s Collection Privee for some time, not to mention the beautiful superior exclusive offers from Guerlain such as the show-stoppingly gorgeous No. 68, Givenchy lagged behind in its niche and exclusive or as they term it, couture offer.
