Givenchy’s modern-cut tuxedo collection How to spend it


A new tuxedo collection from Givenchy has a clipped, modern cut that would work for cocktails if worn without the black-tie paraphernalia. A black full-canvas wool tuxedo suit (€2,450) has unusual pleated peak satin lapels; a formal white pleated plastron cotton shirt (€420) comes with engraved buttons; and another white shirt (€350) has a pearl-buttoned button-down collar. There are also white silk ties (€130). Among the more outré items is a lily-patterned jacquard evening jacket(€2,900) that from a distance almost looks as if covered in polka dots.
