Shortly after stepping into the role as the new Creative Director of the French powerhouse, Matthew M. Williams has delivered his first collection Givenchy. Designed during the pandemic, the collection sees the utilization of Givenchy’s archives that points to the past, present and future.

“You find the pieces of the puzzle for a collection, building it from symbols and signs, but never forgetting the reality of the person who will wear it and bring it to life. The women and men should be powerful and effortless, equal and joyful, a reflection of who they really are – only more so. It’s about finding the humanity in luxury.” explains the Alyx founder.
