GIVENCHY: Collaboration with artist Benjamin Shine
Blending the world of art, sportswear and haute couture, Givenchy's popular sweatshirts and T-shirts with the Madonna and Madonna and child iconography are now available in one-of-a-kind pieces.
In collaboration with British artist Benjamin Shine, these signature pieces from the brand's spring/summer men's show will be reinterpreted and revealed by the subtle manipulation of a single piece of tulle.
A prodigious artist since his teens, Shine came to global prominence in 2008 when he crafted an intricate three-dimensional portrait of President Obama using ripped pieces from an old American flag. He has also made celebrated portraits of Rembrandt and Prince Albert of Monaco, amongst others.
These handmade pieces of moving art are only available made-to-order from Givenchy's Haute Couture salons.
