The lower galleries of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris provided the setting for the Spring/Summer 2019 haute couture collection by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy.
Titled ‘’Bleached Canvas’’, the collection embodied the Artistic Director’s philosophy of modern couture, broadening the distinctive Givenchy signature with an of-the-moment aesthetic.
Clare sent models with latex leggings, shirts, and capulets with an evening twist down the runway, making the case for unexpected formalwear.
‘’[It’s] about really starting fresh’’, she said after her show. ‘’Really cleaning the house. I wanted to start with nothing, and then put incredible color in it, incredible techniques, all about silhouette, architecture, structure and just beauty’’.
