Givenchy and designer Riccardo Tisci offer up a brief glimpse of the French luxury label’s Fall/Winter 2013 campaign ahead of its debut later this year. Shot in stark black and white, the campaign was photographed by duo Mert & Marcus with styling by none other than former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld. While the menswear photography highlighted here features modeling from the likes of Spanish actor Quim Gutiérrez, the brand’s campaign is also set to include Roitfeld’s daughter Julia as well as current Givenchy muse Amanda Seyfried – who also happens to be the face of its Very Irresistible line of perfume. Expect the campaign to roll out in full with the debut of the brand’s fall fashions in a number of upcoming publications around the world.
Tattooist and artist Scott Campbell’s latest solo show “Things Get Better” is set to open at the OHWOW Gallery in Los Angeles.

The culmination of two years of research involving trips inside Mexican prisons to learn about these machines, Campbell’s latest project is a true labor of love for the artist. “Things Get Better” will be on show at OHWOW from May 23 to June 22.
