MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS


A SELF-TAUGHT DESIGNER WITH A PENCHANT FOR HARDWARE, MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS WAS APPOINTED THE COVETED ROLE OF CREATIVE DIRECTOR AT GIVENCHY IN JUNE 2020. WITH AN ACUTE AWARENESS OF SOCIETAL UNDERPINNINGS IN RELATION TO FASHION, WILLIAMS HAS SUCCESSFULLY ESTABLISHED A HIGHLY INTUITIVE AND SOUGHT-AFTER BRAND IN 1017 ALYX 9SM. AT JUST 34 YEARS OLD, HE HAS PROVEN HIS COMMITMENT TO IMPECCABLE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL, WHILE PUTTING HIS OWN SPIN ON GIVENCHY’S PHILOSOPHY OF ELEGANT EASE. FOCUSING ON LONGEVITY IN DESIGN AND AFFIRMATIVE CHANGE, WILLIAMS VALUES A THOROUGH PROCESS OF RESEARCH, TECHNICAL MODERNIZATION AND CREATIVE REUSE. FORGING A STRONG PATH BY FOSTERING MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS WITH INDUSTRY PROFESSIONALS, THIS CALIFORNIA NATIVE HAS MADE A NAME AMONG TASTEMAKERS WITH HIS SIGNATURE “ROLLERCOASTER” BUCKLE STYLE. RELOCATING TO PARIS, WILLIAMS HAS BEEN ABLE TO FOCUS ON HIS GENDER FLUID VERSION OF MENSWEAR AND WOMENSWEAR AT GIVENCHY. A MESMERIZING HARMONY OF MODERN, INDIVIDUALISTIC MODIFICATIONS WITH GIVENCHY’S SOPHISTICATED EDGE GIVES WAY TO A POWERFUL COLLECTION OF HIGHLY VERSATILE READY-TO-WEAR, SOFT LEATHER GOODS AND STATEMENT SHOES WITH HORNS.

HIS FIRST COLLECTION, DEVELOPED IN THE HEIGHT OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC, RADIATES A CELEBRATORY ENERGY THROUGH NOTES OF ELEGANCE, PLAYFULNESS AND PRAGMATISM. VIEW MAXFIELD’S EXCLUSIVE IMAGES SHOT BY CAMERON MCCOOL AT RICHARD NEUTRA’S GLASS-WALLED MODERNIST TAYLOR HOUSE IN LOS ANGELES. OFFERING EXTRAORDINARY VIEWS OF CALIFORNIAN LAND AND VEGETATION, NEUTRA’S STRUCTURE PROVIDES A PERFECT BRIDGE BETWEEN THE GLAMOUR OF GIVENCHY AND THE DESIGNER’S NATIVE ROOTS. BE THE FIRST THIS SEASON TO DISCOVER A MODERN APPROACH TO SLIDES WITH MATTHEW M. WILLIAMS’ SOFT, “MARSHMALLOW” VERSION FOR GIVENCHY OR EXPRESS A SPIKIER SENTIMENT WITH HORNED ACCESSORIES. FIND JOY IN LUXURY THIS SEASON WITH FUN AND EFFORTLESS STYLES THAT ALLOW FOR A TRUE REFLECTION OF THE SELF.
