American designer, Matthew M. Williams, Creative Director, Givenchy debuted his first collection at the House of Givenchy for the Spring/Summer 2021 Ready-To-Wear at the Paris Fashion Week. For this season, 34 years old Mathew explored the forms of Givenchy and presented a collection utilising Givency’s distinct lineage, pointing 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," Williams said, in a statement. "The women and men should be powerful and effortless, equal and joyful, a reflection of who theyreally are – only more so. It's about finding the humanity in luxury.”

The designer paid homage to some of the brand's past creative leads — Hubert de Givenchy and Alexander McQueen, specifically — by bringing back certain design signatures, such as looped drapery and "Jour" open backs of Givenchy and horn detailing by McQueen.

Williams's touch becomes apparent in the emphasis on more casual, everyday pieces made with inventive materials and finishes, such as foam slides, coated denim and embellished hoodies. The accessories are likely to be a winner on the commercial front, the sculptural totes and oversized Antigonus, in particular.
