Shop the interactive Givenchy Fall 2023 RTW collection, investigating a generational sophistication through reconsidered classical compositions. Artistic Director Matthew M. Williams mirrors the principles of elegance founded by Hubert de Givenchy in the dressing culture of the arts-driven community of women that surrounds him today.
Silhouettes, constructions and styling informed by the past but adapted for the present. Defined by magnified volumes, tailoring cuts a strong shoulder with a softly nipped-in waist achieved without constriction. Black coats developed in the haute couture atelier are crafted in satin, tricotine, cashmere or mohair and sculpted with inverted pleats either at the back or with buttons at the waist.
Sourced from the Maison’s archives, the motifs appear in flou expressed in ruched dresses with trains, chainmail dresses, and gowns constructed from bands that twist around the body. Amongst the accents of colour, lavallière dresses in leather or hammered satin retain a balance with the pure.
Evening gowns informed by archival creations are realised in the haute couture ateliers, each a reflection of the self-expression that characterises the dressing culture of a new mentality.
