Hubert de Givenchy revolutionized womenswear with his first collection in 1952, offering separates that could be mixed and matched in style. Prominent female figures like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jackie O. were his muses, serving as the inspiration behind a refined elegance. His styles demonstrated a harmonious balance of timeless and innovative styles, and continue to do so today. Elegant evening gowns, crisp cotton shirts and small geometric handbags showcase a reserved sense of longevity and technical innovation. The brand’s first female artistic director, Clare Waight Keller, continues Givenchy’s vision of practical and polished styles with a sense of ease and adaptability.
