Ever since Matthew M. Williams was appointed creative director at Givenchy in 2020, the fashion house’s collections have come with a modernized air, offering a sense of reality, authenticity and an elevated sort of chicness. “I want to make clothing that feels like it’s been touched by the human hand,” Williams once said about his creations.
When Williams designs, his focus extends to the tiniest of details, and Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection serves as proof. The latest season seems to galvanize the world by making both the formal and informal accessible for everyday wear. Think sharp pieces that share space with worn denim, sequins and pearls, blending opposing elements to create a new narrative. Ruffled wool dresses sit pretty alongside tailored numbers, and ornamental elements balance out the practicality of day-to-day staples.
What’s more, the new season also reimagines embellishment for a modern finish. Hardware is repurposed as jewelry, and pearls dot clothing in place of predictable studs. Accompanying the interesting collection, of course, is a new era of ‘It bags’. This time around, Givenchy offers up a selection of accessories that embrace a softer construction with bags like the G-Hobo, which comes with the brand’s signature lock, and new-age editions of the Kenny and the 4G bags. Presented in a soothing palette of celadon, ultraviolet, and pearly white, the fashion house’s arm candy is anything but basic. Below, take a closer look at Givenchy’s latest season.
