a.Fasione’s Shopping Round Up # 23: GIVENCHY FW12 PONCHO and CAPE
Went into Givenchy the other day and I must say I just fell in love. With the FW12 collection in full bloom in shops, 2 of the pieces that I must say are to die for would be this black cape with leather detail and this knitted poncho with French lace and beads. They're just stunning pieces and as expected, stunning prices. I wasn't able to resist trying them on as they were just too gorgeous. The cape [retailing for about SGD 5000] can be worn just on the shoulder or you can unzip the armholes as I've done so. It has this asymmetrical leather detail on the chest area that adds a tinge of sophistication and uniqueness to the look. The poncho, on the other hand, is one of a kind. Retailing for around SGD 4700, it's a piece that can be carried over regardless of season. You can blame the intricate detailing of the handwoven French lace and beads that resembles a bustier for that hefty price tag.
Well a girl can dream eh? Well, if you're lucky enough to be able to shell out that much dough on these pieces, then I'd say run on down and grab them. They're classic stand out pieces that would work well with anything on your wardrobe. If not, then enjoy the photos as much as I did ;)
