The Jaw is the first trainer from Givenchy’s new artistic director Clare Waight Keller, and it’s been making waves since its debut FW18 appearance. Sitting on an outsole that looks like – and is inspired by – the teeth and jaws of a shark, the trainers are an utterly distinctive slice of Givenchy style modernity. Made in Italy from a mix of nylon, mesh, suede and leather, this high top pair is offset with a statement branded rubber back patch.Givenchy knit trainersLace up fasteningRound toe, thick shark jaw style notched sole, knit sock, front zip, branded heel tabTextile, rubber and leather upper, textile lining, rubber sole

Hubert James Taffin de Givenchy launched the label in 1952 as a line of simple, light separates. Two years later, the Balenciaga-mentored Frenchman debuted a full ready-to-wear collection. A meeting to fit a young Audrey Hepburn (he was expecting Katharine) marked the start of a legendary designer/muse relationship that spanned forty years; he used her as the face of his first perfume, L’Interdit, and she became the first actress to sell a scent (today, Liv Tyler mugs for the brand’s beauty wing). The house hit a home run with fashion heavies like Lauren Bacall, Jackie O, and Princess Grace, and Givenchy went on to launch a men’s line in 1973. By 1976, the brand included fabrics, furnishings, shoes, jewelry, and a Ford Lincoln Continental. Givenchy joined LVMH in 1988, and after Hubert’s retirement in 1995, it gained notoriety as an incubator of style stars like Alexander McQueen and John Galliano. The relatively obscure Riccardo Tisci was named creative director in 2005.
