Givenchy: Expect this season darkly romantic dresses, edgy leather separates and luxe accessories

Givenchy's AW18 collection is laced with arresting evening dresses, and this black Lurex style was the closing look in the runway show.

It's expertly crafted in Italy from metallic ruffled tiers that cascade down the frame from an asymmetric shoulder to a handkerchief hem, then it's lined with a black satin bustier and secured via a concealed side zip.

Complete the look with metallic heeled sandals for special occasions.

Givenchy employs dense chain fringing to design this gold-tone metal cuff – an easy way to tap the house's statement accessory trend for AW18.

It's expertly crafted in Italy with a slender hammered band that is branded with the double-G logo, then finished with layers of chain fringing. Style it with a cropped mini dress alongside a statement clutch.

Clare Waight Keller draws inspiration from 1980s silhouettes for Givenchy’s AW18 collection, which includes these black trousers that debuted on the runway. They’re made from lightly grained glossy leather that's lined with silk twill and are shaped to a high rise style with tapered legs that are finished with push-stud cuffs. Tuck in a ruffled blouse and style with metallic accessories for a glamorous look.
