Matthew M. Williams will debut his Givenchy haute couture collection in January. “It’s been drawn; we’ve just started the toiles,” he revealed during a preview for his first live show since the pandemic began. His third ready-to-wear collection was a massive explosion of ideas and ambitions bottled up for too long, until finally the cork popped.
Williams erected a proportionately giant oval light structure inside the La Défense Arena, traversing and intersecting with military panache. He imagined the vastness. Only a stadium experience would do, he recorded an original soundtrack (very catchy). “Seeing it in person definitely influenced what you’ll see today,” Williams stated, his intentions clear.
He worked the fabrication and surface decoration of every garment to intricacies, turning up the impact factor of looks so you could literally see the details from across the arena. Rich, rustling mega-sequins embellished column dresses, while dense micro-plissé structures bolstered bolero jackets.
