PARIS — Givenchy plans to take a pause from presenting its couture collection, WWD has learned.
The French fashion house said it would continue making high fashions and welcome clients to its salons, but it won’t show a collection to the press during the next couture week in Paris, scheduled from Jan. 21 to 24.
It is understood Givenchy will continue to showcase its couture on celebrities during high-profile events, such as the Costume Institute gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in May, for which Givenchy’s couturier Riccardo Tisci is a cochair.
Earlier this year, Givenchy dressed Madonna in couture for her performance during halftime at the Super Bowl.
Givenchy and Tisci have been moving toward a more personalized approach to couture in recent years.
In 2010, Tisci stopped staging couture shows and instead presented 10 looks in a still-life format at a town house on Paris’ Place Vendôme.
Givenchy noted it continues to invest in its couture atelier and does not rule out couture presentations in the future.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
