Two months ago, designer Clare Waight Keller crafted a gown that was blasted on the global stage for the newest member of the royal family, Meghan Markle. Today Keller has revealed her second couture effort for Givenchy, calling back to the fashion house's iconic founder and the legacy of elegance that is stitched in every seam of all things Givenchy.

Set in the garden of Paris’s Archives Nationales, the ambiance helmed a multitude of present emotions, including that of Keller's brief but ever-inspired connection to Hubert de Givenchy. In a comment to Vogue Keller says, "Everybody knows his work with Audrey. But less so the capes, the peekaboos, the architecture, the flou. . . . It was a wonderful trip for me to discover it and reinterpret it my way." Thriving without fault, this couture collection delivers the aforementioned with an abundance of Keller's own sophisticated touches.

From silk to feathers, sequins to velvet, this layered selection of materials are brought to life as crisply tailored capes and pristine gowns each with a uniquely defined appliqué and air. Keller also crafts a menswear range of couture that includes sharply executed jackets and trousers, exuding a forward thinking mindset of the influence and ultimate future in co-ed runway showings across the board.

Only two couture seasons in for Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller has quickly established herself as a designer who knows how to honorably take the helm of an iconic fashion house. Proving that motivated intuition is often stronger than consequential choice, Keller remains at the top of her fashion game with a creative stamina that's seemingly unmatched because she's disregarding trend and is defiantly delivering her singularly focused perspective.
