Men’s fashion week in Milan or Paris is one of the most anticipated events of the year! One of the leading European brands uncoupling from coed shows is Givenchy. This afternoon, outdoor display at École Militaire, a complex of grandiose 18th-century buildings not far from the Eiffel Tower, maybe a story about Ukraine.
Givenchy has unveiled collections through showroom presentations, two filmed runway displays, and two live shows since Williams arrived in June 2020, amid the Coronavirus pandemic. The American designer winces when asked about inspiration and references or brand codes, remembering that Hubert de Givenchy designed exclusively for women.
William’s is certainly pushing the boundaries below the ankle, creating sculptural footwear with cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. A really unique silhouette and construction. There’s only a couple places in the world where you can make a boot like this, and it’s taken a long time for us to create, time and phone call ti china.
Visit Williams at Givenchy’s showrooms on Avenue Montaigne and you might find him in a sleek black suit, or more casual attire. He explained that he tends to settle on something that I’m really into from the brands he designs, and I wear that like a uniform for a few months, or maybe even half a year.
