Givenchy’s Cruise 2025 (Resort 2025) collection, designed by Susanna Venegas and Josh Bullen, seamlessly blends the house’s French couture heritage with a distinctly British influence. Drawing inspiration from the Givenchy archive and English style icons such as Stella Tennant and John Lydon, the collection showcases a relaxed yet chic aesthetic that pays homage to the late Hubert de Givenchy’s lifelong muse, Audrey Hepburn.

The women’s looks, overseen by Venegas, channel Tennant’s carefree elegance with crisp tailoring adorned with pops of cheetah-print shearling and understated eveningwear. A standout piece is a white pom-pom cage dress set on a crystal lattice, reminiscent of the swinging ’60s. Venegas describes the collection as “provocative but always chic,” emphasizing the importance of unwavering confidence.

Bullen’s menswear is inspired by both gentleman and punk aesthetics, as seen in the colorful tuxedo jackets paired with ribbed tank tops inspired by Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon. Artist Julian Schnabel’s penchant for wearing pajamas in public informs a robe jacket and a slinky navy monogram matching set. Vintage trompe l’oeil hair print scarves and a mint green cardigan with a 3D woven jacquard and intarsia motif inspired by Hubert’s porcelain tea set add a touch of British charm.

The designers’ disparate backgrounds-Venegas in couture and Bullen in technically advanced, utilitarian menswear-come together in a cohesive collection that adjusts proportion and materiality to serve a contemporary context. Womenswear refocuses the house’s genteel source code to signal something bolder and more assertive, while menswear channels Hubert’s mid-century patrician grandeur into a 21st-century masculine equivalent.

Shot together on the sidewalk outside Givenchy’s home on Avenue George V, the lookbook showcases the intersection of the two collections, with standout looks including a white double-satin womenswear button-up funnel-neck shirt worn over a black marabou pom-pom-lined skater skirt, and a cashmere cat print ringer sweater paired with slouchy tuxedo pants and open-toed loafers.

As Givenchy awaits the appointment of a new Creative director, Venegas and Bullen lean into the limbo to produce a fun and attractive collection that combines clarity and panache, proving that the house’s future remains bright.
