Givenchy Presents The Plage Collection For Pre-Fall 2023


The Plage collection carries on Hubert de Givenchy’s beachwear legacy

Givenchy proudly presents its Plage collection, a transversal “city to sand” swim- and beachwear capsule. Consisting of ready-to-wear apparel and accessories for Fall 2023, the collection is inspired by the refined lifestyle and gentle colours at Le Clos Fiorentina, Hubert de Givenchy’s seaside estate in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat.Plage

Blending Old And New

The Plage collection revisits the House’s signatures and presents seasonal variations on essential accessories. This includes items such as the “straw basket” version of Givenchy’s new Voyou bag to Marshmallow wedges and classic G-Tote shoppers.

Givenchy Creative Director Matthew M. Williams, said, “The light is different in the South of France: Monsieur de Givenchy loved Le Clos Fiorentina for its protected, natural beauty and a relaxed elegance that was a world away from his busy life in Paris. For Givenchy Plage, I wanted to explore that lifestyle through light and colour, especially the pearly pink façades that are so typical of that region.”

Moreover, blending the laid-back glamour of the French Riviera and the Creative Director’s own Californian roots, the Givenchy Plage capsule celebrates a relaxed and joyful art de vivre.Plage

Classic Inspiration

While exploring the Givenchy archives, Matthew M. Williams came across images of the founding couturier’s earliest swimwear, unveiled at a show in New York in 1952. This marked the same year the House presented its first Haute Couture collection, staged in collaboration with an American swimwear brand.

The American clientele’s response to the Plage collection was so enthusiastic, Hubert de Givenchy became the young French couturier to know. In the decades that followed, he would consistently present beachwear.Plage

Heritage Vibes 

On top of that, in 2023, Givenchy Plage reconnects with that heritage in a collection featuring House signatures past and present. Daring cut-outs, beach club staples, sailor stripes, pearls and pink, chain motifs and delicately woven macrame come together in silhouettes that convey sensuality with a twist of sportiness and ease.

Black and white, shades prized by Givenchy for their timeless, seasonless and universally flattering allure, set the tone for a collection designed in the spirit of separates, with pieces that lend themselves to easy layering. Linen, one of the couturier’s favourite materials, is knitted into bikinis and coverups in black or sandy beige, accompanied by a bob hat or this season’s Givenchy tote in raffia.Plage
