The Spring/Summer 2012 Givenchy collection features these retro 'Pin-Up' flip flops. An ode to the classic pin-up girl era, the set displays images of the immortalized 1950s woman known to sport an exaggerated pompadour and dark red lip rouge. While the lady is in fact nude, a dash of modesty is revealed by way of a censored chest, a choice that resonates well with the brand's well-known cross between daring meets demure.
The thin black Pin-Up sandals will attract some heady poolside attention this season, if not for the provocative woman displayed, then for the Givenchy label brandished on the sides and bottom of the thongs. The set is also partially made of leather, adding a playful luxurious touch to the beachwear scene. And so, the 1950s pin-up girl prototype lives on.
