During Paris Fashion Week, Givenchy unveiled its Fall/Winter 2020 menswear collection, which focused on infusing traditional looks with a touch of spontaneity. Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller aimed to highlight the modern man, by giving permission to add moments of personal style — like brooches and chains — to otherwise traditional, slimline tailored looks.

The collection pays tribute to the lavish Los Angeles lifestyle of the 14th Maharajah of Indore. The aristocrat traveled from India to Los Angeles in the 1930s, embracing Modernism and building up quite the immaculate jewelry collection during his stay. Givenchy takes cues from his over-the-top mentality but juxtaposes it with sleek, tailored clothing, ranging from suiting to carefully draped sweaters and trench coats.

Bright red acts as the main pop of color throughout the entire collection. The indulgent hue occupies both full looks and peeks out from under sweaters as layering pieces. Pantone‘s 2020 Color of the Year, Classic Blue, also makes an electric appearance, standing out alongside black on an ornate patterned blazer and as the lining on a more minimal suit. Double-breasted blazers and nipped coats are fastened with oversized brooches, pins and charms attached to chains. Proportions are also played with within reason, from oversized sweaters to loose trousers.
