Since Matthew M. Williams joined Givenchy as Creative Director there is been a lot of hype around each of his new sneakers, while it’s easy to keep your eyes open for the next “it” trainer for future drops, looking further afield we are getting a better grasp of what the iconic house is under his creative eye.

Williams is not shy to dress the free and fluid, many or make up his creative orbit, including reggae artist Alkaline who he noted as an inspiration for this collection, no matter how he explores dress codes, you can see the technological push of Parisian craftsmanship into the future which we are living today. From the cargo pants created from digitally printed waterproof fabric to the 4-G logo Japanese denim jacquard overlaid with laser cut and hand-destroyed muslin.

For Spring/Summer 2023 we see a clear emergence of a contemporary take on artisanal. One example is the bags created using upcycled laminated patchworking of leather scraps. Meanwhile, the G-Cut has entered its full potential with key pieces that can stand on its own including 3-D Printed sunglasses set to rival the noise around the new take on the TK-360. But it was his take on new tailoring that we will be watching as it is just unfolding and we are starting to see how the outer world, outside of Williams’s sphere, embraces it, giving a new voice to the iconic house.
