GIVENCHY’S high-impact SS22 collection took the storied French House to the streets of Paris.
Staged at an abandoned railway, the show marked the debut of Williams’ first artistic collaboration at the luxury Maison with Seattle-born, Mexico-based artist Chito.
Most recently, the House has unveiled a new, limited-edition range of accessories designed in collaboration with the airbrush artist, spanning bags, shoes, and jewellery.
Infusing Givenchy’s gritty glamour with a graffiti-art sensibility, the pieces feature eye-popping motifs and characters, including the Truehearted girl, the cartoon dog, Blue Moon, and the House’s signature 4G emblem.
When it comes to footwear, marshmallow wedges and slides come adorned with a contrasting, airbrushed 4G emblem. While, Chito’s signature Truehearted motif embellishes white leather city trainers, as does the artist’s signature cartoon dog — a symbol of protection and loyalty — on tennis shoes for women and men.
An industrial take on classic French staples, the exclusive Givenchy accessories for SS22, designed collaboration with Chito, are available both in-store and online.
