Givenchy

Update: This post has been updated on March 23, 2011. Scroll down to see the new add.

For the last couple weeks I’ve had quite the passionate love affair with Givenchy. It really hit me out of nowhere because I remember being totally underwhelmed by the S/S 2010 collection first, but now I’m starting to warm up to the collection (minus the conehead hats, they’re still a big no). The footwear range of this collection was bold; Riccardo Tisci’s ultra-high chunky platform wedges certainly weren’t for the faint of heart. And while they’re not something I’m seeing myself rocking anytime soon, I still admire them for what they are: pieces of wearable art that is.

Jeffrey Campbell “Dipper” Open-Toe Booties

Come on, you didn’t really think Jeffrey Campbell would miss the chance to come up with their own Givenchys for the masses, did you? Say hi to the “Dipper”.

Joe’s Jeans “Lilly” Wedge Booties

Did you know Joe’s Jeans does footwear besides… jeans? Well, now you know and apparently they like getting inspired by high fashion brands as you can clearly see their “Lilly” wedge booties have quite a few Givenchy references. They basically just rounded the edges and called it a shoe. Also, do you happen to notice the almost twin-like similarities between the JC “Dippers” and these “Lilly” booties? Makes me wonder if they’re just a rebranded version of the JCs but with a higher price tag?!

Trouve “Trina” Wedge Sandals

Another great alternative to the real Givenchys are these budget-friendly wedges by Trouve. They’ve been tamed in terms of look and are not as extreme as the Givenchys, but this makes them a lot more wear- and manageable. Available in black or nude.

ALDO “Gersten” Sandal Bootie Wedges

Finally, let me present ALDO‘s take on the Givenchy wedges to you. The “Gersten”. The streamlined look and the lower platform makes this shoe probably the most wearable Givenchy knockoff out of the 4 and it’s also the cheapest Givenchy look-a-like at $100.

How kickass are these shiny multi strap wedges by Givenchy? When I first saw the footwear collection for the S/S 2010 collection I was unsure if fast fashion chains would answer the call by replicating these extreme almost fetish-style shoes. But surprisingly a lot of them did and we’ve had several of the Givenchy shoes available for those on a lighter shoe shopping budget.

Steve Madden “BONNDD” Wedge Sandals

UPDATE (10/27/2010): Apparently Steve Madden liked these Givenchy wedges so much they had to make a second, cheaper alternative. Good for us broke Givenchy lovers I guess. Available in black, blue, cognac & blush.

Joe’s Jeans “Unforgettable” Wedge Sandals

UPDATE (09/05/2010): This is the 4th Givenchy knockoff I’ve come across in a matter of 2 weeks. Seems like people love Givenchy right now. Joe’s Jeans who are now also making footwear have copied Givenchy in the past, so it didn’t come as a surprise that they’ve done it again. Available in black leather or grey suede.

Jessica Simpson “Tito” Wedges

Isn’t it amazing how you can get Givenchy style for 1/10 of the originals’ price? Thanks to Jessica Simpson you can wow the crowds by opting for these almost identical Givenchy look-a-likes. Totally amazed by this shoe line.

Oh snap! Just when I was lost, now I’m found – City Snappers to the rescue! These babies may not have the pretty pewter spikes, but I can deal with the gold nailheads; considering they’re only $39.98! Feel the love, ladies, in either black or brown and take this stud out on the town! 🙂

These badass Givenchy ankle boots would give an edge to any outfit. Who knew patchwork could look so chic? I’m loving the high shine of the studs and the small touch of gold.

Marciano “Symone” Open-toe Ankle Boots

While I love the killer Givenchy booties, their high price tag is bringing the pain, so we’ve found a similar pair for less than half the price. The Marciano version doesn’t have the same subtle gold detailing or gorgeous glossy studs. However, they still give off the same badass vibe with a touch of pewter and for under $250, I’ll take them.

Black leather. A screamingly hot stiletto. Buckles. How do I love thee, Givenchy? Let me count the ways. One of my favorite trends of the last several years is the reintroduction and reinterpretation of the bootie. And Givenchy’s Slouchy Thong Ankle Boots are a winning pair, I must say.

UPDATE (08/31/2010): Woohoo! Here’s another fantastic Givenchy alternative which is only about half the price of the Marciano booties by Jessica Simpson. Available in black, camel & dark brown.

Marciano “Milap” Booties

I’m sure there are thousands of working-class fashionistas who regularly fantasize about being able to plunk $1.150 down on a pair of booties, at-whim. Even if that fantasy never comes to fruition, you can still indulge your inner diva with the “Milap” Booties by Marciano. Like the Givenchy pair, they’re black, buckled, and bold—and while they’re no steal deal, $119 beats the hell out of more than a grand, don’t you think?
