Here, intricately cut evening wear embellished with feathers, rhinestones, and paillettes added texture.

More generally, the interaction between Givenchy’s couture codes and Williams’s more democratic sensibilities was exhibited in contrasts of material and form—trucker jackets and MA1s in wool/silk—and contrasting adjacencies, which were primarily defined by the contrast between more formal and casual pieces of clothing.

A boxy blazer’s central zipper fastening allows it to be worn as an overshirt, while tailored pants are transformed into zip-hem cargos.

While formal influences are visible—a blue suit with a single metal clasp on the front, for example—these ensembles are combined with forward-looking shoes that borrow from the House’s sneaker design language, which are here much more retro-tech in their approach.

The sneakers, which come in a variety of colors but stand out for one in white and orange, combine the TK360’s bulbous heel with a more conventional retro runner upper that uses mesh and leather for an aughts-inspired look. This is found with loose-fitting cargo jeans and black outfits resembling Williams’ work at 1017 ALYX 9SM, relaxed washed-out black denim two-pieces, varsity-esque hoodies, and arguably the star of PF23, a leather jacket.

This item brings to mind Riccardo Tisci’s time at the House because it is presented in luxurious black leather. Givenchy’s logo is emblazoned over the chest in sparkling studs, and the cropped style is youthful and fun, especially when worn with the track-seam skirt and sneakers that resemble the Nike Air Force 1 High.
