Clare Waight Keller spent her summer travelling through the archives of Givenchy, the house she joined in May , after leaving Chloe’. Her discoveries brought her to Jonchet, an 18th Century chateau in the Loire Valley where Count Hubert de Givenchy, now 90, received her. “He’s so chic. So tall,” the designer swooned during a preview of her debut collection for the house founded by Givenchy in 1952. The father of the little black dress, he is forever associated with the modern sophistication of Audrey Hepburn, who was his closest friend. Her films were still playing on TV when Waight Keller was growing up in Birmingham in the Seventies, forming her first ideas of the timeless elegance epitomised by Givenchy.
At Chateau de Jonchet, she recognised exotic elements she’d seen in his archives not popularly linked to the legacy of Givenchy. “In a super chic way, there was the tiger, the zebra, the leopard,” she recalled. “It’s not a territory that’s that known but you look through the archive and there’s tons of it. You think about the little black dress, but I talked to him about colour because I wanted to be quite graphic with what I was doing here.”
