Clare Waight Keller‘s second season at Givenchy looks definitely more promising than the first one. The Hunger and B Movie: Lust and Sound in West-Berlin, 1979-1989 were on the designer’s mood-board. Weimar-era non-chalance of Berliners was also on her mind. The effect was eternally chic, seductive. And, quite intriguing. The ‘sleazy’ faux-fur coats, as Clare called them, were all over the show, and just note how beautiful they look belted. The collection also subtly nods to Hubert de Givenchy signature, the Little Black Dress (here elegantly ornamented with a huge bow). Also, I adored the way the ‘waterfall’ dresses in the evening section (as if anything here could be easily called ‘daywear’…) beautifully flowed down the models’ bodies. Even though it’s still too early to truly capture Waight Keller’s vision for Givenchy – which is rather dark, than light – she might be on the right path.
