GIVENCHY Spring 2013 Video Presentation | By BARNEYS New York


Featuring the same dark motifs and Stars and Stripes imagery of the brand's Paris runway show from January, this short film highlighting select pieces from Givenchy's Spring 2013 menswear collection is both evocatively shot and atmospheric. The nearly two-minute clip, produced by Barneys New York and directed by Gordon Von Steiner, uses a range of filmic techniques -- including kaleidoscopic camera work and the contrast between light and shadows -- to show off pieces that are already visually striking. Recurring black and white color schemes are complemented with prints depicting religious iconography, resulting in a feature that's as artfully conceived as the corresponding collection.
