The Givenchy Spring/Summer 2018 haute couture collection is inspired by the moonlight over a garden in the spring time with nocturnal conceptions. The collection is the first by Givenchy’s new Creative Director Clare Waight Keller, who just recently took the position last year to manage the fashion house’s haute couture and women’s & men’s ready-to-wear collections.
In accordance with the theme, the collection was named “Mystères d’un Jardin de Nuit” or Mysteries of a Garden at Night, because of how Clare Waight Keller evoked a glimmer of ‘moonlight over a garden in spring’ to the outfits in the collection. Radiating in a translucent and pellucid lighting, the essential black and white colours in particular expresses a contemporary approach to what is valued most.
Clare Wright Keller has become quite the addition to the Maison with her fresh and innovative ideas; not only has she put an array of elegant women’s wear together, she also created three bespoke men’s styles as well, making it a promulgation for crossover fashion. The lighting as well as the technical know-how raised the quality of the materials during the showing of the collection, as they vacillated between otherworldly gowns and oblique, tailored pieces in lackluster blends. Creased mousseline, refined ruffles and lace were embroidered with feathers and pearls in the show. Dazzling silk dresses modulated a pink latex skirt or salmon latex jacket.
