Givenchy has dabbled in denim before in seasons past, but head designer Riccardo Tisci has decided to officially launch a denim line for the storied fashion house. For the campaign, Tisci got his new muse and arguably one the best bodies in the business to front it, Candice Swanepoel. She can be seen on the shoulders of a fellow male model to bring the dark, moody, and raw feel that he is known for.
For the line, he has kept it pretty tame…but not completely. As a man that loves intricate detailing, he has sprinkled bits of signatures throughout like stars, zippers and leather to hang among classic raw styles with a single stitch going across the back pocket.
This is a collection that will definitely keep me on my toes in terms of seeing what they will come up with, as you know Riccardo is not one to hold back when it comes to his designs. It has me really interested in seeing how far he will take the jeans while still keeping the heritage of denim. And going by what he has done so far, he is on the right track. Check out the styles that are out right now below and click here to purchase them now from Mr. Porter.
Rihanna was seen exiting Giorgio Baldi in Los Angeles, California last week and heading straight towards the paparazzi before heading home.
Rihanna is always one to have a unique dress sense! She wore a Givenchy Stone Washed Denim Ruffle Skirt with an Etoile Isabel Marant jacket and a pair of Manolo Blahnik boots. I think the skirt is really feminine and cool at the same time, but I don’t think it’s something I would personally wear. Do you like it?

Fergie was seen leaving Sunday church service and then later heading to a Superbowl party in Los Angeles, California a couple of weeks ago.
Fergie wore her Givenchy black leather skinny pants with an 86 tee and some heels. She later threw on a jacket for warmth. What do you think of her sporty look? Do you like it? I think I prefer it without the jacket.

This week I got to style two Givenchy pieces (the shoes and the bag) for SSENSE which I chose to put with one of my favourite pairs of Rag & Bone jeans; their skinnies in Oil Stain. As the bag gave me a sailor inspired vibe, but the shoes kept it feminine, I went down the route of mixing wood, browns, creams and stripes to really add to the effect. This outfit does remind me of being on board a yacht so I added the sunglasses to finish it off.
The items in this outfit are the Givenchy Black Medium Antigona Tote, the Givenchy Black Corrine Strap Wedges, a pair of Rag & Bone Skinny jeans in Oil Stain, a Helmut Lang White Arid Crepe Sweater, some Elizabeth & James Biscayne Sunglasses, a Marc by Marc Jacobs Brown Wooden Bolt Bangle and a Proenza Schouler Brown Braided Waist Belt.
I definitely have fun styling the different products for you all to see. I like being able to pick different styles and different outfits, so there is something for everyone. I really love the Givenchy wedges though, they are definitely a statement shoe! What do you all think of the bag? Does it give you that sailor vibe too? I can definitely see it working with a pair of boat shoes, cuffed chinos and a casual blazer too!
