Givenchy Fall/Winter 2024 – Paris Fashion Week

Givenchy's Fall/Winter 2024 collection paid tribute to the house's legacy while offering contemporary takes on classic silhouettes. Tailoring and craftsmanship were on display, but the collection lacked the distinct creative voice of a single designer.

Givenchy‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection, presented during a period of creative directorial transition, showcased a fascinating exploration of the house’s legacy reinterpreted for the modern woman. The in-house design team, stepping into the spotlight, crafted a collection brimming with references to Hubert de Givenchy’s iconic styles, worn by the likes of muse Audrey Hepburn. Swing coats, draped pencil skirts, and little black dresses evoked the elegance of a bygone era, while hemlines were decidedly contemporary, reflecting a keen understanding of modern sensibilities. These pieces wouldn’t look out of place on present-day style icons, channeling a timeless sophistication with a youthful edge.

Beyond its nostalgic charm, the collection displayed the house’s enduring strengths in tailoring. From the long, structured coats crafted in luxurious wool to the slouchy pants paired with peplum vests, these pieces exuded a sense of effortless polish. The exceptional craftsmanship of the Givenchy atelier was further evident in showstopping creations like the maroon crystallized bustier dress and the breathtaking draped black column gown. These pieces were not mere replications of the past, but rather, reinterpretations that embodied the timeless elegance for which Givenchy is renowned.

Despite the undeniable skill and craftsmanship on display, the collection lacked the distinct creative voice often associated with a singular design leader. As the recently published “Givenchy: The Complete Collections” catalogue reminds us, a talented team can ensure the smooth operation of a fashion house, but a visionary leader is the driving force behind true creative innovation. While Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2024 collection offered a delightful homage to its heritage, it left one yearning for the spark of a singular creative force to propel the brand into the future.
