Givenchy Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2020

January 27, 2020

Gardens as metaphors. Signposts and signals for lives lived, friendships nurtured, seasons passed. From the walled ‘rooms’ of Sissinghurst to the orchards of Monk’s House and Hubert de Givenchy’s Clos Fiorentina, Clare Waight Keller considers gardens as a tapestry of time and circumstance – a timeless reprise for the Givenchy Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2020 collection.

Clare Waight Keller called her collection for Givenchy ‘’Une Lettre d’Amour’’ (a love letter, in English), thinking correspondence between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, so by metaphor as well her own creative love letter to house founder Hubert de Givenchy.
