It's been almost a year since Matthew Williams took the reigns at Givenchy, and now his first collection for the storied French house is finally hitting stores. From razor sharp suiting and leather trousers, to baseball caps with horns, the covetable 'Giv 1' trainers and chunky gold and silver hardware, Williams' menswear offerings proved to be a big hit - the designer counts Travis Scott, Fan Chengcheng and Playboicarti as fans. Now, Givenchy has launched an exclusive menswear pop-up at Harrods, which will be available to explore digitally via private appointments until stores re-open in England on 12 April.
The space was designed in collaboration with the British-born artist Ewan MacFarlane, and it hammers home the distinct design language Williams has established via hardware and Givenchy's 4G emblem - first unveiled last year in a campaign by Nick Knight. A central plinth features the house symbol woven together in chrome, sitting upon which are humanoid sculptures created by MacFarlane, adding an unusual twist to the space which is lined with metal poles. MacFarlane's sculptures have also been disassembled, body parts scattered across the space to display different items from the S/S 21 collection. Keeping one's eye moving round the room, this is no ordinary retail experience - but then again, this is Givenchy.
Until Harrods officially reopens on the 12th April, dedicated Givenchy staff are able to assist with customer requests and pre-booked digital appointments.
