I was quite surprised that they chose Claire at first, but on second thoughts she might actually be a good fit and bring the house back to what Hubert de Givenchy intended. While I was not impressed with Chloé in recent years she is certainly capable, ^agree she would have been a better fit at Burberry.
Though i'm interested too to see how she will do the menswear, and if she'll do the co-ed catwalk thing or not.

I'm excited about this. I think she'll be a great fit, and bring back some much needed prestige and class to Givenchy.

No more silk screened cats, and Kardashians.

Didn't Clare say she was leaving Chloé because she wanted to move back to London with her family?!
Anyways, congrats to her and good luck. I'm definitely curious to see what she does at Givenchy.

I think she's a better fit than some of the rumored names that were going around. Interested in seeing her debut collection.

She's certainly competent. Perhaps that's the best we can hope for these days?? I'm growing nostalgic for a bit of mad genius.

Her fall collections for Pringle were sharp so she might have what it takes after all.

I agree with majority of the comments- I was quite surprised at this news, I definitely didn't expect Clare to go to Givenchy. However, I am really interested to see her work and how she moves the house in a different direction.

When I picked my user name I had no idea this is what would happen. Maybe she'll surprise us all, we'll see.

I'm not familiar with her menswear but Givenchy will be the perfect house for her to experiment.
It's a clever move from LVMH. She is talented and she is the total opposite of Riccardo in terms of aesthetic but they are quite similar in their way of understanding the market and creating good items.

I wonder if she will have her studio like in England like Phoebe...

I don't want to be overtly excited because we saw how it turned out for Dior & Saint Laurent but i have faith in her.
I think she is clever enough to understand the brand and the heritage of all the designers before her.
The menswear will be very exciting.

I suppose that Resort 2018 will be her first collection..
