It is a dissonant harmony that is staged on the catwalk of Givenchy for the next hot season, a stylistic crush born from the awareness of Claire Weight Keller that the society in which we live thinks and acts not univocally but according to dichotomies that propose as much as cancel. In some ways, a dialectical conception of the reality of eraclitic memory that takes shape in the clash of the effervescent Paris with the urban spirit of New York in the 90s: the silhouettes stand out for their soft volumes, with flawless, tailored blazers and the cut slightly elongated, worn on very palatable destroyed denim, the cult item of this season and a clear homage to New York freak life. The evening is tinged instead with melancholy romanticism with floral motifs that bloom on long dresses, colored prints or precious embroideries that enrich the lace with sparkling points of light, thus concluding in beauty a collection decided in its contradictions and sober in its philosophical drunkenness.
