Camouflaged Seapunk Menswear - The Givenchy Spring 2014 Pre-Collection Embraces Urban Culture

The Givenchy Spring 2014 Pre-Collection stays true to the label's luxe streetwear aesthetic. Inspired by a Latin influence and the popular Seapunk subculture, visionary designer Riccardo Tisci mixes relaxed sportwear silhouettes along with tailored elements that showcase his contemporary translation of utilitarianism.

This camouflage-infused menswear line features luxuriously layered garments that embrace vivid combinations of floral and checkered prints. This collection pairs the label's luxe and urban wardrobe of statement tees, sweatshirts, bermudas, kilts and weather-proof parkas with purposeful travel bags and zipped clutches along with minimalist shoe and sandal designs.

Entitled "Favelas 74", the Givenchy Spring 2014 Pre-Collection is sure to appeal to the urban style-ite with a flair for both youth and luxury. Riccardo Tisci stuns the label's loyal followers once again and creates a fearless collection of quality-made streetwear looks that combine high-fashion with function and comfort for their wearer.
