My obsession with Givenchy's F/W 2011 collection is JUST starting to come to light. But let me say it again, Panther, Rottweilers, Black, Floral, Spiked Heels. OBSESSED. A few seasons ago, Martin Margiela featured horse print t-shirts that fashion editors were crazy over. This one nearly copied exactly the "Summoning the Storm" print painted by Artist David Penfound. So what did I do? Did I fork over $1000 for the Margiela shirt? Of course not. I bought a $16 "summoning the storm" t-shirt online at one of those mountain man stores you can find with a google search. Givency's Panther t-shirts, which retail at over $500 can similarly be created by a quick ebay or google search. I found one for $11.95 here at a zoo shop! And another over at Topshop UK that is out of stock, but I am sure more will surface soon. The Givenchy men's Rottweiler t-shirt that was seen on Kanye West and Liv Tyler is more affordable but I will look for cheaper versions of that one too! Look very shortly for more mainstream stores to knock them all off.
