This Fall, the House of Givenchy celebrates its heritage with Givenchy Atelier, an exclusive capsule collection of timeless pieces.
A tribute to the savoir-faire of the petites-mains in the House’s ateliers in Paris, several of whom started with Monsieur de Givenchy, Givenchy Atelier transposes Givenchy Couture techniques into an exclusive ready-to-wear capsule.
Made in Paris, this handmade capsule is composed of air blouses with puffed sleeves, a timeless little black dress or structured pants. Essential pieces for the female wardrobe, made from the most luxurious materials and techniques.
For Waight Keller, Givenchy Atelier is a way in which she can marry her own vision with that of the storied fashion house and its founder Hubert de Givenchy, perhaps bringing the brand into a new light for current fans and those she’s yet to reach. The price point is slightly lower than that of the ready-to-wear line, but not by much. The idea isn’t to create a secondary label, but to underscore the timelessness (there it is again) of the fashion house and its DNA, and to create a collection of true essentials.
As Waight Keller says, “This felt like an interesting way to solidify a message about what the Givenchy codes are.”
