Matthew Williams is the designer who made rollercoaster buckles the must-have at Alyx and through his collaboration with Kim Jones at Dior Men. The hardware will be integral to the first chapter of Williams’s Givenchy narrative. Inspired by the Love Locks on Paris’s Pont des Arts, Williams has fused the maison’s 4G logo with the lock to create, surely, a new It objet. As Vogue reports This, then, is a looser interpretation of the strictness once associated with the historic maison of Givenchy, a place stitched into the codes of Parisian elegance. But if there’s one thing Williams is already doing, it’s remaking this heritage brand in his own spirit. Galliano had his historical drama, McQueen his pop culture futurism, Tisci a sumptuous gothic romance, Waight Keller a woman’s touch on couture. Williams has a Californian Pop-savvy eye that already shows in his imagery. All that’s left to say: Watch the show on October 4.
