In my collections, I always speak to lived reality. For Spring 2022, our first pre-collection runway show, I wanted to bring together my American roots and my brand new life in Paris. There’s an energy of striking out for a new adventure, of drawing on something familiar yet creating something completely new. Chito made an ideal collaborator because we share that storyline; we speak the same language. Like me, he expresses his distinct visual signatures through unique pieces that give people total freedom to make creations their own personal statement.” – Matthew M. Williams, Creative Director, Givenchy

With the Givenchy Spring 2022 pre-collection, Creative Director Matthew M. Williams expands on the new tone and attitude he has established for the House by celebrating two cultures and two loves — his homeland, and France, the country he now calls home.

As a longtime friend and fan, Matthew M. Williams invited Chito to develop new airbrush graphics and bring his idioms to the Givenchy universe. Abstract and figurative motifs mix with idiosyncratic characters such as Chito’s cartoon dog, a symbol of protection and loyalty.

The Givenchy Spring 2022 pre-collection will be available in-store starting November 5th, 2021.
