I am so in love with Givenchy Fall Winter 2012. Their menswear collection has gone from strength to strength. I think what's appealing, is Riccardo Tisci's vision to translate those amazing runway looks to wearable pieces for retailing. One of my favourite pieces from Fall Winter 2012 is the above striped cotton jersey sweater. Simple in black and red, accentuated with a parameter of stars around the neckline. I would also wear it with a black or red shirt underneath.

At £300, it is quite something for a sweatshirt. But I wouldn't really say it is expensive for a runway piece, and one that is featured prominently in their ad campaigns. I am definitely getting this, now the question is, am I a Givenchy 'medium' or 'large'? Am calling Mr Porter's helpline tomorrow to find out. You can also get the Givenchy striped cotton jersey sweater online from Mr Porter (US) and Mr Porter International.

    2. So feeling it and I am so over the rottweiler and BOP. But the size I wanted is sold out after thinking about it for awhile. As for Hedi...BLEH! Before you show us what you can do, you start by raping the brand to get media attention. Can't see him putting anything relevant these days. Do we still care for skinny drug addicted looking boys? I don't. I am too old for that shite.

  4. Horizontal red and black stripes always reminds me of Freddy Krueger. Only difference is the added stars around the neck line.
