Power Pieces: Givenchy T-Shirt
On taking the helm at Givenchy in 2005, Riccardo Tisci received one piece of advice from the esteemed French fashion house’s founder, Hubert de Givenchy: “Remember one thing only: Don’t be somebody else. Be yourself.” Ten years on, having twisted the original Givenchy codes to create a truly unique aesthetic, no one could doubt that is exactly what the designer has done, and the label’s statement-making T-shirts are just proof.
The perfect canvas to showcase one of Tisci’s iconic prints – be it the Rottweiler, a graphic collage or a circle of pentagrams – a Givenchy T-shirt is the ultimate in contemporary luxury.
A favourite with the A-list, the instantly recognisable Rottweiler print made its debut in the AW11 men’s collection, with the designer taking his bow in a T-shirt bearing the growling face. Said to have been inspired by an illustration in a Boy Scout handbook, the print has returned each season since, and has even transferred over to the womenswear collection, too.
Whichever print you choose, let it add edge to off-duty looks by styling your T-shirt with tailored denim and high top trainers, adding a blazer for evening appeal.
