Seeing as summer is refusing to come out to play, sweaters have been on my mind. Mostly the Givenchy ones. Givenchy everything most of the time, but particularly the sweaters from the Autumn Winter 13 collection. Bambi, shark skulls, flaming tamborines, pin up girls, fallen angels, fire paisley…Ricardo’s crew know how to mix print to make images that are playful, dark, sexy and oh-so-wearable. It’s grunge’s older, better dressed sister. A bit mischievous, a bit John Stezaker, a bit collegiate sweatshirt and a little bit record sleeve art. Perfect for weather that’s not quite cashmere cold, but not jacket only warm either. All donations gratefully received. A flaming tambourine for crying out loud!
