Since joining Givenchy as its creative director last year, Matthew M. Williams has instituted a contemporary design approach at the historic French house. The brand’s Fall 2022 Pre-Collection is no different as Williams elevates the house’s tailoring heritage.

With a relatively neutral color palette featuring light gray, black, white and a few pops of color, the collection’s power rests in its meditation on volume, shape, signature hardware and new design techniques like subtle utilitarian detailing.

“I am really focused on exploring Givenchy’s heritage while also looking toward the future,” said Williams.  “I believe fashion is relevant when it reflects what it means to live today; there’s a constant tension between everyday reality and the precision, elegance and extravagance of the couture tradition.”

Men’s tailoring is overhauled with concealed-button jackets, an asymmetrical blazer with a silver Givenchy logo clasp and tailored pants for a seamless aesthetic. A collection highlight is a light gray full-length coat with utilitarian detailing, the brand’s new U-lock hardware and a semi-deconstructed neck collar. Other men’s garments include an oversized black leather jacket, flannel shirts and nylon cargo pants. The collection’s “Art” denim offerings feature gauze overlays and laser-monogram treatments in addition to printed, bleached, overdyed and destroyed detailing.

Rounding out the collection are accessories like the G-Zip bumbag, camera bag, caps and the fully knit TK-360 sneaker.

Check out the collection above which will be available in stores and online beginning May 2022.
