Matthew M. Williams said “options” for Givenchy’s SS24 collection. Presented during Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the American designer gave us an entire wardrobe for all occasions, from your classic suits to gorpcore outerwear to your family-friendly dinner party. Here are some key pieces that we can’t seem to get off our minds.
Everyone knows luxury accessories are a collection’s best sellers, and these backpacks are going to fly off the shelves. We saw the compact bags come with regular backpack shoulder straps, in black & yellow and cream-coloured versions. Givenchy gave us the remix as well with the bags tied around the lower waist like a backward fanny pack, and another super-secured with straps on the shoulders and around the waist. Givenchy really came through with the hiking-ready accessories.
THE ONE-PIECE SUIT
Obviously, there were a lot of suits this season, it is Givenchy afterall. You had your classic black, white and grey versions but what really caught our eye was the one-piece suit style romper. Coming in both a black and a white version, the jumpsuit had the pristine tailoring of its two-piece cousin, while keeping a relaxed fit with a slouching quality to them.
This season, Givenchy wants to take us outdoors, with its gorpcore leaning pieces. There were some oversized coats with sleeves falling past the models hands, including a two-tone yellow glossy zip up. There was also a series of rain jackets, and considering the rainy weather in Paris, it was a good call from Givenchy to add those into the Spring/Summer collection. One in particular was made with grey and grey contrast panels, with the construction continuing inside with a yellow and a grey reflective material sewn in.
Things got trippy on the runway, when tees perforated with eyelets started popping up. First seen peeking under a yellow jacket, the full tee was exposed to reveal a series of eyelets, placed in a row according to size. We wonder how often these tees would get stuck onto literally anything in the way.
To go with the classic suits, Givenchy gave us its take on the waistcoat – or perhaps vest jacket – in a denim and a leather version, both paired with a white button-up. Continuing on its gorpcore vibes started with the bags, we saw other sleeveless vests, this time with a zip-up feature that gave us a hybrid between fisherman and security man jackets, but make it luxury.
