Hot. Hot. Hot.
That’s the weather and Claire Waight Keller’s second Haute Couture Colection for Givenchy.
Claire Waight Keller is the designer of the moment, of course, after that wedding dress (Meghan married Harry, should you need the memory jog).
Not that she needs the commercial accolades because, with every collection, her aesthetic quietly powers the message that she looks to be one of the real stars of the fashion firmament, hopefully for years to come.
Not wishing to repeat myself – Spring 2018 Haute Couture – I’d simply reiterate that the simple elegance and purity of her design, whilst referencing the Hubert de Givenchy/Audrey Hepburn glory years, bring to mind, for me, the feelings I have looking at the work of Rothko.
In both, I see a masterly paring back of everything that is non-essential to reveal a framework, in fashion in fabric, that illuminates the beauty displayed within.
