Clare Waight Keller (formerly at Chloe) has made her Givenchy debut for Paris Fashion Week’s Spring/Summer 2018 presentation held at Palais de Justice, making it the first fashion event to ever take place in the mid-19th century building.

 

The new collection featured strong shoulders, cinched waists, pops of color in every look, as well as graphic prints inspired by motifs from the brand’s archives, all displaying Waight Keller’s attention to detail and tailoring. The menswear side of the collection showcased jackets in different colors, textures and materials such as the varsity jacket and the topcoats in slim silhouettes, a departure from the baggy and beefed-up aesthetic of Ricardo Tisci, who left the brand in February 2017.
