That's true, even though I really enjoy Ozwald's collections very much, it seems he's just continuing with his own collections. There id really nothing to compare it with.

I was just thinking how similar the two are as I was clicking on this thread.

I love it though...

His exploration and playfulness with colour is much more noted and refreshing here than with his own collection. The cuts are also clearly different; here there seems to be more casual daywear and just slightly more volume. More approachable overall than the spot on, killer sense of haute masculinity with his own line.

Seeing as Givenchy never had a menswear line, I always thought that that would give the designer a clean slate to work with and do something totally unique & original..but I have yet to see that w/ Boatengs collection(s) here.

Next.

That actually may be the biggest problem. Where do you begin when a house has no tradition of menswear and failed attempts at womenswear?

Part of me thinks a key component of Dior Homme's success is actually John Galliano. His deviation from the script, his perceived outrageousness, his heavy reliance on pop culture and music, his cool factor all made the slick slim elitist factor of Dior Homme tolerable. It also helps that the estethic of the two designers are at odds and thus seem somewhat balenced, at least from a visual point of view. All Givenchy has had of late are failures to connect to an audience that can't get Hepburn out of their pretty little heads. What is Os to do? What could a menswear exploration at the house possibly rely on?

When GIVENCHY GENTELMAN was the equivalent of CHRISTIAN DIOR MONSIEUR , it did have a talented ' safe ' designer with an Italian name that I just cannot remember , the equivalent of Dominique Morlotti and then Patrick Lavoix at Dior menswear . There was also a fairly less expensive diffusion line called ' Monsieur de Givenchy ' , which was popular with besuited gentlemen looking for a little class .

When Givenchy himself started the menswear in the late 60s/early70s , it was as chic and as sought after a men's label as St.Laurent Rive Gauche , as it was known at the time .

I like Givenchy Homme lately, for what it is at least. It's just good safe menswear, as Kit said. Very pleasant stuff.
