Clare Waight Keller’s first official campaign for Givenchy dropped this morning, and unlike the feline-filled teaser ads she released on Instagram ahead of her official debut for the French house last fall, this campaign is a little more…wild.
Take, for example, the mirrors, some of which are dramatically smashed on the floor; or the cast of young, brooding models dressed in Waight Keller’s ‘70s-tinged wares; or the fact that Waight Keller told Business of Fashion the Steven Meisel-lensed photos were shot at a private mansion in New York—“a place you find on Airbnb,” she said, for a “slightly destructive weekend.”
This last bit got the FU team thinking. How fabulous (and funny) would it be to actually experience a weekend of Givenchy-filled debauchery at some swanky mansion upstate, particularly one that has a “faintly spooky feel about the rooms where a group of young rock kids seem to be lingering on as if emerging from an all-night party,” as Waight Keller stated in the press release? Without further ado, we bring you five Airbnb mansions perfect for a chicly raucous weekend upstate.
