I was fortunate enough to come across one of the runway pieces from Givenchy's F/W2012 Men's Runway Collection at Paragon today and I must say I am smitten. Absolutely smitten. Givenchy has been known to tread the borders of fashion and this Gabardine Pleated Skirt for men is definitely one of them. Yes - you read it right, a skirt for men. I just love how Tisci is breaking boundaries - if women can wear pants why can't men wear skirts? And believe me, real men - as in hot men - wore these during the brand's recently concluded FW2012 show.

I couldn't resist not trying them on, especially with the plethora of red stars peeping through the pleats. They're such showstoppers! If you're a high fashion junkie much like myself, I honestly think this piece is too hard to resist. Available at Givenchy Paragon for about SGD 2600 or via Luisaviaroma for about USD 1400[CLICK HERE to PURCHASE], it's price is steep for something that you can most likely wear about 1-2x a year. On the upside, you'll definitely be the talk of the town in this number! So what do you guys think? Yay or nay?
