Givenchy vs. John Derian
When my colleague Kaylei showed up to our recent food-centric photo shoot with this decoupage cake pedestal from John Derian, I swooned. And then immediately thought of Givenchy's Fall 2013 collection. Set against a dark background, both floral prints take on a sophisticatedly moody feel and elevate the sometimes-twee motif to a dramatically romantic level. Put that on a wool moto jacket? Double swoon.
