Cute and completely edgy: Such is the character of Givenchy’s Bambi-and-female-form print sweater that has created a veritable Disney land among the fashion world keen to channel a more daring version of the beloved deer.
A less ferocious incarnation of Givenchy’s onetime ubiquitous Rottweiler shirt from Fall 2011, the animated, Bambi motif jumper is also now pervading the modish masses.
The dark, lacy interpretation of the Disney icon was first trotted out by style plate Carine Roitfeld at this year’s punkish Met Gala, followed by a recent return appearance during Spring 2014 New York Fashion Week.
Songstress Monica took the sweater out for a more casual spin with her young son. Playing the cool mom, she paired it with a denim shirt wrapped round her waist along with leather leggings and an intense pair of Christian Louboutin’s leopard-print spiked sneakers.
Actress Lily Collins and editrix Anna Dello Russo both clad themselves in the cartoon for the Givenchy show during Spring 2014 Paris Fashion Week, each also taking the versatile piece from sweater to a leggier sweater-dress.
