First Dibs: Givenchy Resort Look 13

Published August 3, 2012

In the battle between leather and warm weather, we took sides a long time ago. But we are amenable to a truce—with Riccardo Tisci as our moderator. We’ve been coveting this look from Givenchy’s recent resort presentation, with long, wide-open slits up the sleeves and a loose, rounded fit. We’re not sure what to call the coat—biker poncho, perhaps? We just know that this model managed to stand tall on a New York City street in the summer while wearing it. Granted, that doesn’t mean she was comfortable, but it does look less oppressive than the form-fitting shapes that leather often takes. And when winter comes? Zip the sleeves right up! The boxy cut of the torso will still be in style.

Throw in the pattern on those shoes, the texture on that skirt, and the laser-sharp tailoring on that shirt, and no one will dare question the weather-appropriateness of our outfit. First dibs all around.

This First Dibs look was chosen by Interview fashion assistant Charlotte Fetridge.
