A new elegance. A contemporary study of glamour. A re-contextualisation of archetypes. For the Fall-Winter 2023 Women’s Collection, Givenchy investigates a generational sophistication through reconsidered classical compositions.
Drawing on instincts integral to the Maison, 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. The premise manifests in a demonstration of the codes that seduce a modern-day wardrobe mentality: a proposition expressed in confidence, comfort and empowerment.
The reflection on a new elegance takes shape in a balance between the new and the old: 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.
Innate to the practice of Matthew M. Williams at Givenchy, the dialogue between Parisian chic and American cool unfolds in a formalisation of sports- and workwear.
