For Pre-Fall 2013, Givenchy gives us a glimpse of their Pre-Fall 2013 lookbook. Keeping the theme of dog prints, Givenchy replaces the vicious Rottweiler graphic with that of an equally vicious Doberman graphic. Other pieces include leather-paneled puffers and the PERVERT printed shirt which we’re sure will draw much attention. Also new this season is a repeating HDG monogram motif – for House de Givenchy. The letters are also the initials of Givenchy’s founder Hubert.
