R.I.P Hubert de Givenchy

Just last week we were celebrating Gal Gadot and Chadwick Boseman wearing Givenchy Haute Couture to the 2018 Oscars, so I was sad to learn that the French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy, who created iconic looks for Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy, died at the age of 91 yesterday.

The Haute Couture designer upheld a standard of quintessentially romantic elegance in fashion for more than four decades. But if you look to Clare Waight Keller’s debut Givenchy Spring 2018 Haute Couture collection, it’s clear his legacy continues to inspire and will live on forever.

Upon hearing the news that Monsieur Givenchy had died Clare said, “I am deeply saddened by the loss of a great man and artist I have had the honour to meet and get to know since my appointment at Givenchy. Not only was he one of the most influential fashion figures of our time, whose legacy still influences modern day dressing, but he also was one of the chicest, most charming men I have ever met. The definition of a true gentleman, that will stay with me forever. My deepest thoughts are with his loved ones in this difficult time.”

    Rest in peace, Sir. He was magnificent. I loved his fashion collaboration and lifelong friendship with Audrey Hepburn.

    Hubert de Givenchy died????? I didn’t know!!! Such sad news! He was definitely one of the greatest designers ever lived and one of my favourites…
    His collaboration with Audrey Hepburn gave us some of the most iconic and beautiful looks in film and fashion history.
    I like that the latest collection is a tribute to his legacy…
