GIVENCHY’S SS17 LOOKS TO LOVE
It’s hard not to succumb to the dark romanticism of Givenchy – the label’s sharp tailoring and tough-luxe details effortlessly transcend the seasons and will always hold a place in our hearts – and wardrobes. But what are the fashion crowds stand-out pieces? We catch-up with five of the industry’s style-savvy bloggers, who reveal their forever favourites…

'To celebrate this great time of the year, I got myself this super cute blue clutch from Givenchy. The leather feels so soft and it's just absolutely amazing. I can wear it during the day with jeans and a casual t-shirt or I can also wear this "baby" when I go out at night. Think dress code: cocktail. Ricardo Tisci (who unfortunately is leaving Givenchy after 12 years) and this team created my next good investment piece, thank you so much!'

'A classic pair of leather hi-tops will never go out of style. They're the ultimate in easy, casual chic. But when the hi-tops have been designed by luxury brand Givenchy, the simple style is elevated to something a little bit more special. I love the minimal white styling. With a sophisticated but subtle metallic logo, they'll give everything a lift.
I love the idea of wearing them tomboy-style, with boyfriend jeans and a slouchy grey cashmere sweatshirt. But I wanted to show their versatility, so I opted for a monochrome spot dress and embroidered leather jacket.The hi-tops add just enough edge to turn the pretty, feminine dress into something a bit tougher.
They're comfortable, cool and will be the kind of addition to my wardrobe I'll reach for time and again. A total classic.'

'Mules might just be my favourite shoes (EVER). Especially flat mules. And especially these Chain Strap Mules from Givenchy - which was nothing less than love at first sight. Why do I love mules so much? Well, firstly – I find them incredibly easy to wear. Not only easy but also super comfortable and convenient – just like super stylish slippers! They´re also perfect for trans-seasonal weather, like right now – when it´s too cold to wear full-on sandals, yet you´re ready to bear some spring skin. I also find mules very flattering; especially when worn with some cropped skinny jeans, dressing down a floaty maxi or some leather pants. Lastly, what I really (really) love about these mules, is how edgy they are. And how much they can pretty much transform any kind of outfit, being such a strong statement piece in its own right – and how easy it is to throw on a casual outfit (knowing that you can leave these killer shoes to do all of the talking.)'

'This spring I can’t wait to shed some layers, ditch the heavy coat and bring out those lighter cover ups… still in black or white of course!
To celebrate the arrival of warmer days, I’ll be pairing monochrome jackets with jeans and simple tops together with my new favourite accessory – a beautiful, minimal clutch from Givenchy.
Having been lusting after a simple but elegant clutch for what seems like forever, it feels like Givenchy could have designed this one with me in mind!
The large Antigona pouch in soft grained black leather is perfect for carrying around all those day and night essentials and it fulfills all of my monochromatic statement-bag needs in one go.
My go-to spring weekend lunch date outfit will be a black silk shirt, a pair of cropped, kick-flare jeans with ankle boots, some sunnies and a clutch. Which of course gets its own chair in the restaurant!'

'The Antigona shape for me will always be a favourite of mine from Givenchy. It has that effortlessly edgy style, with a lot of practicality and from what I can tell it is set to always be a classic from Givenchy. One of the first handbags I invested in was the medium Antigona, and despite finding it the perfect everyday bag, the size does limit it to being a day-to-night bag. I had never seen the mini styles until recently and fell in love - I’d seen the smaller versions but still found that the straps combined with the heavy hardware, were a little too much for evening and delicate attire in general, whereas this clutch version compliments evening and classic looks a lot more, especially in this gorgeous nude. Although perfect for those night-out looks and having the power to edge up a more feminine style, I still think at the same time it offers to do what Antigona’s do best and to be the perfect companion for a toughened-up style like I’ve worn here.'
