  • Givenchy Clare Waight Keller Riccardo Tisci Chloé LVMH

Clare Waight Keller has been announced as the new artistic director at Givenchy. These recent appointments suggest a break with the fashion industry's status quo in which most high-ranking creative positions are generally run by men. It'll be her first time working with an haute couture atelier and we, like Givenchy chief executive Philippe Fortunato, are confident she'll knock it out of the park.

Waight Keller joins Givenchy after six years as creative director of Richemont's fashion house Chloe, having pushed up sales of its floaty, romantic, 1970s-influenced clothes. He succeeded in designing clothes that had the ideal balance of staying true to their history, but gave them a distinct harder and racier edge.

For 12 years, Riccardo Tisci came out with high-octane embellished pieces that resonated with stars like Madonna, Kim Kardashian, and Kanye West. "A return to the vision of Hubert de Givenchy, is something we should be prepared to possibly see as she posted a photograph of the designer and captioned it simply saying" The journey begins". Formerly the creative director of Chloé, the designer's success at the house is attributed to her line of hit handbags and a range of elegant and tailored collections that modernized founder Gaby Aghion's soft and fluid style.

Clare Waight Keller certainly has a lot to look forward to.

So if you can't enjoy the game unless you play as the boot, you need to get yourself those good, soon-to-be vintage tokens now. Some of the new token designs that did not make the cut were a hashtag, winking emoji and a Mr Monopoly emoji.

Givenchy launched the label in 1952 with his iconic Separates collection, which featured lightweight evening skirts and ruffled blouses.

By contrast, Waight Keller is known for her feminine and bohemian approach to design.

Waight Keller is the first woman to lead at Givenchy.
