Clare Waight-Keller’s described the theme of her AW19 collection as the ‘Winter of Eden.’
Florals played into Givenchy's show at Paris Fashion Week
As Givenchy’s Creative Designer sent her models down the runway, they both echoed the trends seen by other designers across the fashion weeks so far, and added her own personal touch.
Firstly, Clare Waight-Keller tapped into the exaggerated shoulder trend. Models donned camel coats with fabric protruding outside of the seams, accentuating the shoulders and arms in a rounded fashion. Pointed shoulders were seen however red snakeskin print coats and muted tartan jackets.
The aim according to Givenchy was to reconcile geometries with an innate softness; a more seductive side to the brand.
Givenchy then made its own mark on the AW19 trends with a collection of winter-ready florals. Delicate florals designs played out on ruched plissé fabrics with a silky finished. With high-neck ruffles and pleats down the ankle, the overall look was modest yet chic.
Elsewhere, Waight-Keller tapped into the animal print trend with snakeskin jackets and tartan prints in shades of grey.
