Clare Waight Keller Confirmed At Givenchy
GIVENCHY has announced Clare Waight Keller as its new artistic director. Waight Keller, who departed her creative director position role at Chloé earlier this month, replaces Riccardo Tisci who announced his departure in January.
The brand announced the news this afternoon on its Instagram account accompanied by an image of Waight Keller shot by Steven Meisel, prior to which it posted a quote, which read: “True elegance comes with a natural gesture, an attitude in simplicity”, as well as an image of the brand’s founder Hubert de Givenchy.
Speculation has been rife as to who would take up the reins at the house founded in 1952, with Off/White’s Virgil Abloh the favourite to have been tapped for the role.
