Givenchy - Show Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 2018/19 in Paris (with interview)

Artistic Director: Clare Waight KellerPlace: National Archives Garden in ParisInspiration: In homage to Mr Hubert of Givenchy and to his timeless elegance, his minimalist and graphic cuts. The designer was also inspired by the emblematic Caraman hôtel particulier situated on avenue George V. Collection: A collection that, with its cuts and volume echoes the work of the founder who died last March. A modern re-interpretation of the Givenchy codes, with some capes and pleated dresses, some cinched at the waist with a metal belt or metal accessories that mold to the body with feathers, embroidery and shiny materials, with volume and a focus on the shoulders. Some men’s looks punctuate the collection with suit jackets drawn by beautiful shoulders. To Note: A dress entirely strewn with sequins, an open tail coat over trousers, the fluidity of the gowns, the Bettina satin blouse and a black velvet dress embellished with a hood.+ An emotional moment with the voice of Audrey Hepburn (Mr Givenchy’s muse) singing “Moon River” which accompanied the finale and all the Atelier member’s stage exit from the catwalk, all in white coats, who surrounded the new artistic director who brings new energy to the house. With interview of Philippe Fortunato, chief executive officer of Givenchy: We have put in a lot of emotion into this show, because as you know, it was an homage to Mr Givenchy but at the same time full of modernity, full of femininity, full of romanticism and emotion. So, I still have a little tear of in my eye, of joy and emotion from this beautiful show. Everything starts with a sketch, the purity of the lines, the richness and beauty of the materials and at the same time a very pure and very modern silhouette with magnificent embroideries, as you’ve seen, sublime colours, all of which is accompanied by music that is in total harmony with the place and the clothes. We really wanted to get out our petites mains, the men and women who work with passion in our ateliers, who have dedicated their whole lives since many of them already worked with Mr Givenchy, and who, at the same time are definitely capable of achieving the more modern vision that there is today. For us know-how is essential, it’s an expertise that is linked to a very strong creative vision.Music from the show, (for use only in context of this report, under cover of the right to information)
