Spring 2019 Haute Couture: Givenchy’s Bleached Canvas

For Spring/Summer 2019, Clare Waight Keller at Givenchy offered an exercise in purity of shape and line, combining the skills of her tailleur and flou ateliers to offer garments that had structure as well as fluidity. She surprised her audience with a mix of sexy latex (not often seen in couture) combined with lacquered guipure lace as well as her couture take on the backpack (attached to a giant silk bow).
