For Givenchy‘s Spring 2022 pre-collection, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams wanted to honor both his homeland and his current hometown.

“In my collections, I always speak to lived reality,” Williams, who grew up in Pismo Beach, California, said in a release. “I wanted to bring together my American roots and my brand new life in Paris.”

Williams’ first pre-collection runway show for Givenchy was inspired by his journey from the U.S. to France and uses a runway set in a Paris train yard as a metaphor for bridging the two cultures.

Warm colors compliment a mix of textures and craft-inspired designs like a delicate spider web motif symbolize strength and fragility. Seattle-born, Mexico-based artist Chito helped develop airbrushed graphics for several pieces, combining several tailored House emblems with abstract motifs and cartoon-like characters. Chito’s signature clown figure pops up on jewelry, while delicate body harnesses create compelling contrast.

“There’s an energy of striking out for a new adventure, of drawing on something familiar yet creating something completely new,” Williams explained. “Chito made an ideal collaborator because we share that storyline; we speak the same language. Like me, he expresses his distinct visual signatures through unique pieces that give people total freedom to make creations their own personal statement.”

The Givenchy Spring 2022 pre-collection will be available in-store starting November 5th, 2021. Check out the full runway show below:
