Givenchy appoints Clare Waight Keller as its new artistic director

Givenchy appoints Clare Waight Keller as its new artistic director

Yesterday, Givenchy announced the appointment of Clare Waight Keller as the brand’s first female artistic director. Her appointment comes to effect on 2 May, and her creative responsibilities will include women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, accessories, as well as haute couture.

Waight Keller replaces Riccardo Tisci, who left the LVMH couture house earlier this year after a 12-year tenure. Under his leadership, the house adopted celebrity culture and streetwear — turning into a powerhouse label championed by Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian, Madonna, Erykah Badu, and MIA amongst others. In contrast, Waight Keller, former creative director of Chloé, has developed a reputation for her calm demeanour, effortless Bohemian chic designs, and highly-coveted accessories. 

Waight Keller will present her first collection for Givenchy later this year in Paris for Spring/Summer 2018.
