Givenchy: SS16 Campaign

I am an angel. Well, according to Will, anyway. At the time of this revelation he was looking at Dominic and saying “Jack is an angel, you are not.” So, Dominic has given me a love-spreading missing of sorts. To make him a nicer person this festive season. My first homework for him –  look at Givenchy’s just released SS16 campaign, shot by Mert & Marcus. Because, just like Riccardo’s SS16 collection, shown earlier this year in New York, it’s all about the power of love. “Everyone can do something very small, some gesture of love. I’m not saying this will change the world, but the world will be better. I’m a big believer in positive energy, and I’m sure this energy will spread,” he said to WWD. “People have given me so much love and so much respect and this has helped me to grow.” It even comes complete with a nice handwritten message by Antony Hegarty (him of Antony and the Johnsons fame) – “I am a child on the river, and love waits downstream: A waterfall to steal my breath, and change my mind”. I have printed out a copy of this for Dominic’s reference. It’s his new mantra.
