Today, Clare Waight Keller presented her second collection for House Givenchy at the Palais de Justice in Paris. Coinciding with the Academy Awards, the Parisian atelier curated a film-inspired runway for audiences. As Riccardo Tisci’s successor, Clare translates her unmistakable feminine, yet forward attitude from her tenure at Chloé. Her style appears in pleated leather, large bows, subtle prints and fringe details. Keeping up with the world’s growing eco-cognizant spirit, Givenchy overtly supported the use of fake animal skin as seen on several tailored faux fur coats. The stance echoes Hubert de Givenchy’s founding mission to push forward the democratization of luxury fashion.

As part of the LVMH portfolio, the label is expected to maintain a “profitable growth momentum” as stated in corporate 2017 financial documents, relying on Clare, whose keen eye for retail-ready silhouettes has led success for other labels. Moreover, the brand saw a complete website makeover last year.

Preview the show below, and, to learn more, Hubert de Givenchy shares unreleased sketches of his “eternal muse” Audrey Hepburn. For more fashion, view Balenciaga’s Fall/Winter 2018 ensemble.
