Essential: Givenchy pre-spring ’14 “Favelas 74” collection

FAVELAS FELLAS. Genders are not always dyed in the wool, so to speak, and seconding that notion is Riccardo Tisci’s pre-spring “Favelas 74” collection for Givenchy.

Injecting bright floral, camouflage and fire patterns into his creations, the designer doesn’t go halfway in championing the brand’s edginess. Tisci’s obsession with latin culture also meshes innovatively with the streetwear inspiration. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to note how hot his collection is—which will soon be adopted by fashion-forward individuals, regardless of their gender. the rest of the highly collectible print pieces deserve a sweet spot among your belongings, be it the wallet, iPad case or other small leather goods.
