Givenchy’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection was a combination of the classic and the new. Riccardo Tisci paid homage to the house’s famed style of reserved tailoring, yet revitalized it with a slimmer silhouette and a heavy hand of influence from motorcycle and BDSM culture. There was a focus on leather, which contributed an intriguing contrast against the peak lapel blazers. The models wore skinny, moto-detailed pants on top of elastic-strapped rider boots.

The bondage sweaters are a standout of the collection. There were two versions featured on the runway - the first being a v-neck with strap detailing on the frontside; the second, a turtleneck with the detailing on the back. This particular iteration offers the best qualities of both with its subtle flair. It can be worn as a statement piece layered over a white button down, or dressed down to function as a classic vest, hiding its evocative detailing.

The vest is composed of a wool and elastane mix, giving it a comfortable stretch that conforms to the wearer’s body.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
