Matthew M. Williams' latest collection for Givenchy offers a touch of archival elegance to wardrobe essentials.

January 12, 2024


With the Givenchy Pre-Fall 2024 collection, the Maison continues to build on a philosophy of fluidity and ease of dressing while further exploring ideas of new formality as seen on the runway. With this collection, House expands on ideas gleaned from Hubert de Givenchy’s later collections, reworking them through a contemporary lens.

Two currents define the women’s wardrobe. On one hand, languid, masculine volumes are reconsidered with a plunging neckline; on the other, tailoring propositions are waisted with slightly shrunken proportions. Miniskirts give power dressing a modern spin. Cocoon coats in double-face cotton echo those seen on the runway. Likewise, the iconic Givenchy trench is reconsidered with couture volumes in back.

Flamboyant touches include jewel-like 4G buttons on both tailoring and flou. Hot pink and orange bring fresh energy to a predominantly neutral palette. Lightness comes through plays of transparency and archival polka dot motifs. For evening, the Little Black Dress rules: a double-draped back creates an element of surprise, while delicately ruched silk chiffon emphasizes seduction with a dash of mystery. New this season is a graphic lace signature, paneled together with point d’esprit tulle on evening dresses and knitwear.

Women’s statement accessories include the Voyou bag for women, as well as evening propositions in mirrored croc-embossed leather, tortoiseshell and whimsical feather. The Antigona family welcomes the Antigona Cube: a new silhouette exploring an origami-type shape. In a fresh fusion, a boot hybrid of the Shark Lock and Voyou, is embellished with oversized buckles. Spazzolato or metallic pumps and ballerina slingbacks adorned with Voyou buckles complete the silhouettes.
