For Givenchy’s Spring 2012 collection, Riccardo Tisci delivered one of his most stirring visions to date. Think under the sea gone sleek. Paying homage to surfers and mermaids (and everything in between!), he conjured up sexy suits with eel- and stingray-skin trim, skintight pants with liquid-like glimmer, and shark-tooth heels. Gigantic shark teeth also entered the scene as pendants dangling alongside mini-pouches, which are designed to hang from the neck.
That might be a little extreme, but this toothy silver necklace strikes the right balance between sensuous and scary. Two tones of silver gleam with the kind of edge only Givenchy can deliver. I can’t wait to layer this slick piece with more ethnic and colorful jewels, for a cool, beach-worthy juxtaposition. On Forward by Elyse Walker for $735.
Pair with: Shine like a true mermaid in Notify’s Bamboo skinny pants, made of stretchy leather with a glittery, pale pink finish. On Net-a-Porter for $1,105.
