Givenchy: The Complete Collections
This sweeping celebration of Givenchy's classic glamor celebrates more than 70 years of the house's history and features designs from luminaries including Hubert de Givenchy, Alexander McQueen, and Matthew M. Williams

This definitive publication revels in the beauty, opulence, and constant reinvention of the Givenchy brand. Opening with a concise history of the fashion house founded by Hubert de Givenchy, the book then explores the collections of his successors, including John Galliano; Alexander McQueen; Riccardo Tisci, who took the brand into a resolutely contemporary direction; Clare Waight Keller, the first woman to hold the position of artistic director; and American designer Matthew M. Williams, who joined the house in the summer of 2020.

Each era of Givenchy's history is explored through a brief overview and biography of the lead designer, while individual collections are introduced by short texts examining their influences and highlights, illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images. Established in 1952, the house would go on to symbolize effortless elegance and classic glamor, as embodied by its founder's friend and muse, Audrey Hepburn, and other patrons including Jacqueline Kennedy, Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Grace of Monaco, Beyoncé Knowles, Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, and Lady Gaga.
