Brand Spotlight: Givenchy
When the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was announced, the fashion world waited with baited breath to see who the new Duchess-to-be would choose to design her wedding dress. Being American, the jury was out as to who it would be; for English rose Kate Middleton, McQueen was an obvious choice, her elegant lace gown representing a celebration of British fashion. Meghan, it seemed, could choose practically anyone. When the day arrived and the bride stepped out in front of a wall of the world’s media, her simple, crisp and modest white gown sent shockwaves around the world. It was unexpected but unquestioningly elegant and beautiful. The house that was responsible for the design? Givenchy, of course.
Under the creative direction of Clare Waight Keller since 2017, the Givenchy brand represents sophistication, elegance and casual chic. Characteristically french, Givenchy was founded as a haute-couture house by Hubert de Givenchy in 1950, and has since grown to dominate the fashion landscape as one of the world’s most sought after brands, a favourite of celebrities and, evidently, royalty. For men, Givenchy offers apparel that oozes aristocratic elegance and suave sophistication. We have compiled some of our favourite pieces from their most recent collection, so if you’re a fashion forward gentleman looking for a wardrobe refresh, look no further.
