Clare Waight Keller stages first solo men’s collection for Givenchy

Ahead of her debut men’s show in June, the designer staged a presentation and dropped a lookbook for the ‘perverse posh’ AW19 collection

After presenting a trio of co-ed shows since taking over as artistic director of Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller announced last year that she would be taking the house back to standalone menswear collections from AW19.

For this season, the designer eased back in by staging an intimate presentation at the house’s couture salon and releasing an accompanying lookbook, styled by Dazed’s creative director Robbie Spencer

Looking to the 90s (via the 70s) as a starting point, the collection was a full wardrobe to cover from day to night, described by Waight Keller as “perverse posh”. This manifested in the form of petrol-esque trousers and jackets and cropped puffa jackets worn over tailoring.
