Fashion house Givenchy is redefining festive fashion with its Holiday 2023 New Elegance collection that blends formal attire with distinctive flair. Under the creative direction of Matthew M. Williams, the House has curated a selection of occasion wear that builds upon the innovative silhouettes showcased on the Paris runways.
The women’s collection honors the legacy of Hubert de Givenchy, with a focus on architectural designs, exquisite materials, and a clever use of negative space. Standout pieces include a floor-length satin jersey dress with bold 4G plumetis detailing and a red crepe cady dress with archival-inspired cutaway halter detail, elegantly accented with cascading silver chain tiers.
A lace slip dress illustrates the House’s dedication to couture craftsmanship, featuring French lace intricately folded and combined with silk georgette to create an unexpected neckline. The outerwear selection for women emphasizes sharp tailoring and rich textures, with coats that borrow from menswear or celebrate the sculptural potential of luxurious shearling. These statement pieces are paired with shimmering accessories, such as golden beige or metallic Antigona or Voyou bags, embroidered 4G bags, and metallic or crystal-encrusted Shark Lock boots.
For men, Givenchy’s elegant tailoring infuses House codes with a fresh take, from the signature Givenchy thistle as a fabric motif to crystal-embellished 4G emblems that add a festive shimmer. The holiday spirit extends to casual wear with track suits featuring glittery side stripes. The new men’s Voyou bag completes the ensemble with a touch of Parisian insouciance.
Top models Amelia Gray and Kit Butler star in the campaign lensed by fashion photographer Tyler Mitchell. In charge of styling was Max Pearmain, with creative direction from Jean-Baptiste Talbourdet-Napoleone, and set design by Studio Wagner. Beauty is work of hair stylist Damien Boissinot, and makeup artist Christelle Cocquet.
