Chief designer and creative director of Givenchy, Clare Waight Keller, has released the official Pre-Spring 2019 lookbook of her menswear collection. Continuing to push the brand in a Keller-forward direction, the designs are a combination of both 80s and 90s nostalgia with accents of romanticism, culture, and plenty of edge.

Mixing multi-purposed pieces that range from active to evening wear, this collection is full of seasonal statement pieces like graphic short sleeved button-ups with a tight fitted long sleeved scuba-esque shirts underneath. Adding to the current western hype, Keller instates her take on the ever present trend, keeping it sleek and traditional without it feeling overwrought or overly saturated. A plethora of jackets, a houndstooth coat, and a silk jacket make up the layered elements in the collection, each holding enough flexibility to either heighten an ensemble or easily pair one down without sacrificing style. The trousers offered in this lineup go from colorfully pleated to neoprene, fittingly stitched scuba tights.

Another influence within this collection is Japanese culture with silk and metallic prints executed as judo sleeves and dressing gowns; a very handsome approach to throwback evening wear. Check out the entire multi-print-forward Givenchy Resort 2019 lookbook below.
