The Givenchy Fall/Winter 2020 collection made its debut on the Paris Fashion Week runways as the brand's artistic director Clare Waist Keller explores themes of post=streetwear menswear. The concept was translated by modern tailoring as the seasonal capsule drew inspiration from Maharaja of Indore, Yash Rao Holkar II.
His style captures the attention of many all over the globe as he explores royalty and his presence as an 'outlier' during the 30s. Keller speaks about this to Highsnobiety, "there was something about him, and the way his life devolved from this incredible opulence and this regality into this […] life of a drifter.” The range features looks that explore western influences and contemporary cuts.
