The House of Givenchy elebrates the Lunar Chinese New Year with an original capsule collection for men and women. The ‘Year of the Ox’ is traditionally associated with talent, confidence, and openness, heralding an auspicious period of togetherness, hope, and bright horizons. In that spirit, Givenchy presents a selection of pieces bearing the likeness of an Ox.
For women, the year’s totem animal appears as a gold finish charm on zip details adorning sleek, urban essentials such as a black sleeveless jacket, cigarette trousers, an A line skirt in jersey, or a red short sleeved, ribbed sweater. For more relaxed dressing, a black denim dress or shorts are embellished with an ox in crystal and gold bead embroidery, a motif that overlaps a 4 G logo on the back of a black t-shirt, oversized black denim jacket and hoodie.
Rounding out the edit, a dynamic allover GIVENCHY print with a blurry, neon like effect appears in red against a black ground on a cotton scarf blouse, short sleeved shift dress or a mohair cardigan trimmed with velvet yarn.
Casual tops t-shirts, a sweatshirt, joggers, knitwear feature multiple renderings of the ox, in print, embroidery and jacquard. The blurry new interpretation of GIVENCHY lettering is emblazoned on a t shirt, a sweatshirt, and refracted as an allover print in white on a black nylon windbreaker. Men’s wear features a more abstract iteration of the Ox motif, embroidered boldly on the back of a leather sleeved wool bomber and a black cotton button down, or in a discreetly scaled down version on the breast of a white button down. The embroidered red ox also punctuates denim staples such as a black jacket with a white ox print in back, and jeans with destroy effect details.
