For his first haute couture collection, Clare Waight Keller, who succeeded Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy in March 2017, was inspired by the atmosphere of a garden in the moonlight. In this light, women are shrouded in mystery.
Named « Mysteries of a Night Garden », Clare Waight Keller’s inaugural haute couture collection for Givenchy evokes the mood of a garden bathed in moonlight. Frosted by a diaphanous and crystalline light, creations mainly in black and white show a modern approach to what is precious.
They are androgynous, without makeup, often short hair or in the bowl, to counterbalance the romantic nature of their dresses. The collection, mostly in black and white, alternates angular and matte pieces with light and sparkling dresses. The sophistication of feathers, ruffles, lace, pleats, embroidered flowers and tulle contrasts with the fetishism of latex, which composes a pink skirt or a salmon coat.
Clare Waight Keller gives the House a new lease of life by offering three custom-made masculine silhouettes, defending mixed fashion.
