For Fall/Winter 2019, Givenchy presented a standalone collection that showcases its new vision of a complete, day to evening wardrobe brimming with contrast, eclectic pairings and a nod to the maverick individualism of the Nineties. Recast in a modernized way, the mood of the era comes through in a series of color-blocked suits; embellished pieces in embroidered leather underscore a sense of specialness.
‘’I went into my own self, really, back into the ‘90s, and how I felt when I was really young, how we’d dress on not a lot of money. At Givenchy we have young Parisians from schools here, and there’s this same perverse poshness, wearing tailoring in a really sharp way, with a shirt or T-shirt’’, Clare Waight Keller said. ‘’Quite clean, really’’.
Drawing from past and present, Clare Waight Keller builds character through volume, mixing lean lines with loose and oversized pieces.
