Givenchy has unveiled its spring/summer 2018 campaign under the direction of its creative director, Clare Waight Keller. The photoshoot stars models Ansley Gulielmi, Felice Noordhoff, Roos van Elk, Hamid Amar Khodja, Lucas Estievenart and Piero Mendez, all of whom were photographed by Steven Meisel.
“I wanted the models’ attitude to be engaging so I asked them to just be themselves, as they might if they were invited to a party at a friend’s home,” said Clare Waight Keller in a statement. “I think that they really capture the spirit of a generation that loves fashion, but most of all they love making it their own.”
The theme of the shoot? Think ’70s vibes with a spooky feel as young rocker kids linger in the rooms of a private upstate New York mansion during an all-night party. The portrait shots of the models are all black and white while alongside are key accessories from the collection in color.
Standout pieces in the campaign include the GV3 bag in caramel, the neo-classic Givenchy boot in cognac and black kangaroo leather with contrasting printed skin, and jewelry featuring some of Waight Keller’s favorite symbols, such as an arrow and a golden dagger. The Spring eyewear collection, starring textured aviators and a mask style, are also featured in the range.
The campaign follows the release of Waight Keller’s debut Transformation Seduction campaign last fall, which also marked the creative director’s runway debut for the house.
