The House of Givenchy dressed the Canadian singer The Weeknd in a custom outfit designed by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams at the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show in Tampa, Florida, on Sunday, February 7th, 2021.
During the Super Bowl LV Halftime Show, The Weeknd shined in a fully hand-embroidered jacket with crystals, made by the Givenchy Haute Couture atelier in Paris. More than 250 hours were used to create the jacket that the signer wore over a black cotton poplin shirt and paired with wool trousers. Accessories included: a black leather tie, gloves, and black and white derbies.
Created especially for this performance, The Weeknd’s outfit is characterized by the sharp tailoring, minimalism, and intense contrast Matthew M. Williams brought to his debut collection for the House of Givenchy.
It’s truly an honor to have dressed The Weeknd for his incredible Super Bowl show. To me, fashion is all about infusing what you wear with a unique personality, and The Weeknd brought his look to life with his energy, character and sense of style. – Matthew M. Williams
The Weeknd’s Super Bowl LV performance was followed by an estimated audience of more than 100 million viewers who watched the NFL championship game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa.
