Givenchy presents its new “Winter of Eden” eyewear collection
Inspired by Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller’s silhouettes
from her Fall-Winter 2019-2020 collection for the House.
Designed to echo the designer’s sculpted approach to tailoring, this season’s eyewear collection fuses the geometry and softness, structure and curves seen on the Givenchy runway in Paris. A favourite among fashion editors and celebrities, the Givenchy eyewear collection encompasses an array of stylistic signatures, from timeless to trendy, sporty or directional, yet always with
the House’s distinctive elegance.
As seen on the runway, this season’s ‘GV Midnight’ women’s style is an of-the-moment take on the mask frame, crafted in lightweight metal with a single lens bridging the nose. A constellation of Swarovski crystals over the brow lends it a trendy appeal, whether in clear–as seen on the runway–or in grey. Three colourways, with lenses in tinted pink, caramel or grey, are available without crystals.
The contemporary cat-eye style blends sleek lines and a distinctive metallic hinge evoking the “2G” clasp on Givenchy’s iconic GV3 handbag. GV 7143/S sunglasses, in black acetate with grey lenses; brown Havana with green lenses; burgundy with shaded brown lenses; and opal honey with shaded brown lenses.
The ideal fusion of traditional elegance and modern freshness: Bold, highly graphic lines define this strong, of-the-moment style. GV 0117 optical frames come in black metal with wheat yellow Havana temple-tips; in copper-gold with yellow Havana temple-tips, and gold with black temple-tips.
Classic Eighties style gets a modern twist with the ‘GV Light’ flat-
brow sunglasses, which this season come with a metallic brow accent. In a fresh yet more timeless vein, rectangular frames and lightweight metal frames give a contemporary nod to classic Givenchy style. GV 7146/G/S sunglasses come in black frames with a gold bar, gold temples and shaded grey lenses and black tips; crystal frames and palladium bar with palladium temples and
shaded blue lenses and black tips; black and white Havana
frames, black and gold bar and temples, grey shaded lenses and black tips; and brown Havana with a gold bar, gold temples and shaded brown lenses and black tips.
An updated aviator for both sexes, the distinctive GV Mesh takes its cues from Seventies designs yet remains resolutely modern. Available in sunglass or optical versions, this style is easy-to-wear
and iconic. For men, black navigator frames with a subtly flat top
and metallic temples are ultra-lightweight yet make a bold statement. GV 7137/s aviator sunglasses in a gold frame with black enamel on external rims, grey shaded lenses and red Havana tips;
ruthenium frame with black enamel on external rims and bridge, grey-shaded silver mirror lenses and black tips; gold frame with Bordeaux enamel on external rims and aqua on a bridge, green lenses and wheat Havana tips; gold frame with red enamel on external rims and blue on bridge, grey shaded lenses and wheat Havana tips; ruthenium frame with white enamel on external rims and blue on bridge, brown shaded silver mirror lenses and white tips.
GV 7138/s unisex navigator sunglasses in black/crystal with grey shaded silver mirror lenses; matte black/crystal with shaded grey
lenses; white/crystal with grey lenses; and brown Havana/crystal with shaded brown lenses.

and black tips; gold with matte gold on external rims and Havana tips; black ruthenium and Havana tips.
