Givenchy FW24 Leans Into Past Successes

Still void of a creative director.

Lately, Givenchy has been a house in flux. In the past 10 years, the brand has moved between three creative directors seeing Riccardo Tisci, Clare Waight Keller and Matthew M Williams. Tisci had a solid run from 2005 to 2017, but the two that followed him only lasted out the house for about three years each. That’s not enough time to impart a succinct and long-lasting vision at a luxury house, but in today’s climate leaders are expected to do the impossible instantly. Alongside that, one of the overall problems has been to place the house into the current cultural zeitgeist while retaining a tight grip of the style codes Hubert de Givenchy instilled. So with the creative director seat still empty following Williams’ departure at the end of 2023, the house turned inward with its staff to create its Fall/Winter 2024 collection.

Back in January, the house staff kicked off the interim period with its FW24 menswear collection during Paris Fashion Week. Now with the women’s week underway, the team has once again tossed up its collective vision of the Givenchy persona. Even though most relish in the praise and freedom that comes from being an individualist, perhaps working as a group may be what’s best at times. As a collective, the house staff has reminded us of Givenchy’s core elegant style codes – also nodding to its couture legacy.

With each passing runway look, it became clear that the FW24 collection gains its strength through exquisitely precise tailoring and evening dresses. Whether it be blazers, suits paired with pants or knee-length skirts or even overcoats, tailoring danced with sharp edges, contoured silhouettes simple yet delightful fabrics. Evening dresses appeared in short and long variations – enhanced by multi-fabric constructions, eye-catching embroidered details and sleek textures.

The team understood that they need not do much. Just creating cleanly classic clothes that played with silhouette, fabric balance, shape and subtle textures would be enough. So even without a creative director, Givenchy’s latest is a reminder of the house’s history and spark and sometimes those who know it best have been there all along.

Take a look at the collection in the gallery above and stay tuned to Hypebeast’s coverage and Paris Fashion Week.
