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!

Kanye West was spotted heading to Cafeteria Restaurant in New York. He wore a pair of Givenchy leather pants for the dinner. I think this is such a great look. It is definitely something I would wear myself. Everything is just right about it.
I wonder if Kanye will be going to Coachella this year as an attendee? He has stated his love for the festival before. I think it’ll be great if he did. I’m sure we will be pulling some great sightings there.

The new Fall/Winter 2012 Givenchy collection went back to the classic Ricardo Tisci aesthetic of morbid and nocturnal. The makeup on the models was moody and dark compared to the previous sun kissed surfer themed collection from Spring.
Some pieces were reintroduced this season from the Pre-Fall collection, like the rain boots, color palette, and paneling. There is always something that will catch anyone’s eye from every Givenchy collection. I think that is what makes it so appealing. You can click through the collection below.
