In the latest wave of its campaign videos for spring-summer 2019, the House of Givenchy continues exploring irreverent innuendo through images shot by Steven Meisel, who is now joined by a special guest for the voiceover.

“Look who’s here”, Amanda Lear intones at the opening of a clip that marries Nineties-inspired imagery, elements of fetishism and surreal props including an egg, a banana and a bunch of grapes.

Heard in voiceover, the iconic singer actress, former model and friend of the house throws out suggestive quips in French and in English: “What’s the Givenchy woman hiding in her bag? Secrets?” or “Dangerous heels” as the camera pans over silver mirror heels draped in chains. “Oh, chains, I’m going to tie you up, and then I’ll let you go,” she purrs. “Yes, darling, you look gorgeous.”

Strong and striking pieces from the Givenchy spring-summer 2019 collection highlight the season’s key looks, including military details, pleated dresses, beaded and fringed tops, statement jewelry and the GV3 handbag. Ever a subject of fascination, the narrator and her muses bring to life the mystery that has always lived in the House of Givenchy.

Done in the spirit of the original Nineties-inspired director’s cut, Amanda Lear’s cameo just may be one of more to come. Stay tuned
