Givenchy Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller taps Adut Akech and Henry Kitcher for the brand’s “Winter of Eden” Fall Winter 2019 campaign. Photographer Craig McDean captures the polished, heritage tailored looks in a luxury brand that has high hopes of catching Christian Dior, according to LVMH CEO Bernard Arnault.
On a day when Meghan Markle managed to look totally fabulous in her marriage to Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel, she also honored two women designers. As an articulate, committed feminist, it was only fitting that the Duchess of Sussex chose to wear Givenchy by artistic director Clare Waight Keller for the wedding ceremony and Stella McCartney for the evening reception.
Markle has expressed her admiration for Ms Waight Keller's artistic flair, as she's particularly fond of the "elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring and relaxed demeanour," Kensington Palace stated in a formal release.
While Givenchy is a French house, Keller is a British designer, born in Birmingham, England in August 1970.
Givenchy's new creative director Clare Waight Keller has made an immediate impact on tomorrow's Givenchy brand with the launch of its first children's collection. The line reinterprets the house’s classic designs – from bomber jacket and jogging pants to logo T-shirts -- with two collections per year, each with over 100 pieces. Designed for kids up to age 12, the snaps show a lot of heart in tomorrow's Givenchy under the 21st century woman, motherly eye of Keller.
