Hubert de Givenchy founded his namesake haute couture and ready-to-wear house in 1952. No sooner did it open than Givenchy earned a reputation for breaking with the classic fashion codes of the day. Today, Givenchy remains synonymous with the dual notions of fresh modernity and aristocratic elegance, a tribute to the talent of Monsieur Givenchy and that of his successors, in chronological order: John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien MacDonald, Riccardo Tisci, and Clare Waight Keller. In June 2020, the iconic House inaugurated a fresh chapter in its history by appointing designer Matthew M. Williams as Creative Director of women’s and men’s collections.
The Givenchy Eyewear collection is characterized by edgy and trend-setting styles, embodying the spirit of the Maison and the fashion-forward vision of its Creative Director Matthew M. Williams. The collection is also enriched with directional yet timeless designs, echoing GIVENCHY’s DNA of urban elegance, sophistication and unconventional luxury.
