Hubert de Givenchy founded his namesake fashion house specializing in Haute Couture and ready-to-wear in 1952. No sooner did it open than Givenchy earned a reputation for breaking with the fashion codes of its time. Today, Givenchy remains synonymous with the dual notions of fresh modernity and aristocratic elegance, a tribute to the talents of Monsieur Givenchy's successors, in chronological order: John Galliano, Alexander McQueen, Julien MacDonald, Riccardo Tisci and, most recently, Clare Waight Keller.
In June 2020, the iconic House opened a fresh chapter in its history by appointing designer Matthew M. Williams as Creative Director for women's and men's collections.
Favorite accessories include the Antigona and Pandora bag, and new Eden bag. The brand offers iconic bags, shirts, shoes and accessories, presenting logoed pieces with the distinct G, and much more.
