Hubert de Givenchy's beachwear legacy and his elegant retreat on the French Riviera inform a summery capsule collection that moves effortlessly from street to shore. Givenchy is proud to present Givenchy Plage, a transversal “city to sand” swim- and beachwear capsule of ready-to-wear and accessories for Fall 2023.

Inspired by the refined lifestyle and gentle colors at Le Clos Fiorentina, Hubert de Givenchy's seaside estate in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, this collection revisits House signatures and presents seasonal variations on essential accessories, from a "straw basket" version of Givenchy's new Voyou bag to Marshmallow wedges and classic G-Tote shoppers.


“The light is different in the South of France: Monsieur de Givenchy loved Le Clos Fiorentina for its protected, natural beauty and a relaxed elegance that was a world away from his busy life in Paris. For Givenchy Plage, I wanted to explore that lifestyle through light and color, especially the pearly pink façades that are so typical of that region”. said Givenchy Creative Director Matthew M. Williams. Blending the laid-back glamour of the French Riviera and the Creative Director's own Californian roots, the Givenchy Plage capsule celebrates a relaxed and joyful art de vivre.


In 2023, Givenchy Plage reconnects with that heritage in a collection featuring House signatures past and present. Daring cut-outs, beach club staples, sailor stripes, pearls and pink, chain motifs and delicately woven macramé come together in silhouettes that convey sensuality with a twist of sportiness and ease.


Black and white — shades prized by Givenchy for their timeless, seasonless and universally flattering allure — set the tone for a collection designed in the spirit of separates, with pieces that lend themselves to easy layering. Linen, one of the couturier's favorite materials, is knitted into bikinis and coverups in black or sandy beige, accompanied by a bob hat or this season's Givenchy tote in raffia.


Two prints dating from 1955 are revisited for today's Givenchy customer. Trompe l'oeil pearls return on a caftan, a sarong or a dress in punchy pink and on a transparent t-shirt; a theme reprised in pink and pearls on a handbag or canvas beach sneakers. A pale gray print inspired by ID necklaces segues into the hardware vocabulary, such as G-Links, Love Locks and chains developed by Matthew M. Williams for Givenchy. Sporty mesh carryalls, sneakers and a bob hat in cool grey tones complete the theme.


Pairing Riviera classics with a Californian vibe, Matthew M. Williams revisits the iconic marinière in Givenchy nautical stripes, worn with sun-faded or artfully distressed jean shorts and denim mules, 4G sneakers, or G-Totes with white GIVENCHY lettering. Another all-time French classic is revisited as a Voyou basket with leather belt details and bi-material hardware. New, glossy rubber variations on the Marshmallow wedge appear in matte or glossy black, or seasonal hues of lilac, light pink or pale yellow.


Rounding out the Givenchy Plage capsule are playful, elegant new variations on the 4G Plumetis line of jewelry, including a bracelet, earrings and a ring in pink bio-resin embellished with violet Swarovski crystals set in 4G prongs. The collection will begin arriving in Givenchy stores and online in mid-April, with a rollout through mid-May.
