No longer confined to the wardrobes of celebrity kids, French fashion label, Givenchy has just revealed its first childrenswear collection, comprising of 130-pieces set to hit stores internationally in July 2017.
The line stars 60 pieces for girls, 40 for boys and 30 for babies. Featuring a star motif and a sombre palette, the collection for Autumn/Winter 2018 channels in the label’s edgy streetwear-infused aesthetic, with bombers, denim, and child-sized replica versions of the house’s best-selling couture looks.
With its debut collection launch, Givenchy is arriving fashionably late at the childrenswear scene: several years after the flood of childrenswear launches from high-end fashion brands including the likes of Gucci, Chloé and Dolce & Gabbana. The line is licensed by the Paris-based CWF Group, who will produce and distribute the collection to 150 sales points and stores globally. A limited selection will be made available for purchase via the Givenchy website.
Following the departure of former Creative Director Riccardo Tisci and the subsequent appointment of Clare Waight Keller in March 2017, the in-house design studio will now create two children’s collections per year.
