Clare Waight Keller’s Fall 2019 collection

Since her arrival at the helm of the house of Givenchy in 2017, Clare Waight Keller didn’t choose a single pathway to follow. She rather aims at offering women a wide range of possibilities – in terms of vestments and, more generally, personalities, in her masterfully constructed collection she named Winter Eden.

Inspiration springs from the late 80’s and early 90’s era, when aristocracy started to meet street culture: a hybrid creative crossover that perfectly reflects the house’s concept of avant-gardist elegance, looking at tradition yet making it appropriate to nowadays.

All conveys the idea of a uniquely female power, exasperated by exaggerated shoulders developed in multiple options: round, peaked or airy and oversize, and again, falling down onto balloon-shaped sleeves.

Actually, the focus on shoulders in women’s wear is currently a playground where modern designers’ imagination goes wild. It is rooted in the 80’s, when the fulcrum of major couturiers’ attention moved from the trinomial chest-waist-hips up to the shoulders, stealing the majestic proportions from masculine wardrobe in order to empower women.

The Givenchy woman gathers in her persona the sharpness on the entrepreneur spirit in the masculine tailoring, encountering the delicacy of womanhood through curvilinear sculptural shapes, alongside a jubilation of floral printed dresses – declined in 18 different botanical types – lovely crowned by ruffles rounding the neckline. Femininity also becomes as precious as the decorative splendour of the evening garments, richly crystal-embroidered.
