Midweek Modness: 1970s Givenchy Shirt

This 1970s Givenchy logo shirt is vintage vintage. I bought it from the Goodwill on College Street — before it became Motoretta. At the time I was shopping with my former roomie Amir who moved to NYC in the 90s. The label reads Givenchy for Fashions Couture. It was a common practice in olden times for the boutiques who carried designer brands to add themselves to the label.Fashions Couture must’ve been a local outfit ‘cuz I have come across a couple of pieces with this label.

While it has a certain permed hair vibe, it actually works well with today’s wide-legged trousers. Too bad it doesn’t fit as well as it did in the ’90s.
