After an ethereal haute couture collection, Givenchy’s creative director Claire Waight Keller took things in a more subdued direction for fall 2020. With an earthy, monastic color palette and almost severe constructions throughout, each piece belongs in the wardrobe of a woman with things to do, places to be and decisions to make. All-over gingham and checks (accessories included) made the idea of uniform dressing seem not just appealing but sexy, and the shape of some scrunched up leather gloves suggested those of the rubber variety while playfully subverting the context. There was plenty of fringe, too, plus sculptural necklaces that recalled Alexander Calder’s hanging mobiles. Evening wear balanced laid back ease with subtle, feminine drama. It’s a working woman’s wardrobe for the future. Photographer Serichai Traipoom caught up with the models backstage in Paris.
