Givenchy – Luxury from Paris
Givenchy was founded in 1952 by fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy. The company is headquartered in Paris. The designer Count Hubert de Givenchy has French roots and comes from a French noble family. One of the reasons why the press, among others, calls him the “aristocrat of fashion”. In the beginning, only haute couture was created, followed shortly afterwards by prêt à porter. In the meantime, accessories, perfumes and cosmetics for both men and women have also been produced. After initial successes he used higher quality materials and printed them with motifs such as fruits, vegetables or animals, which was very untypical for haute couture fashion, but Givenchy took the risk. He made a name for himself especially with bright and intense shades and his creations gained great recognition value.
Audrey Hepburn, inspiration for Givenchy
In 1953, he met Audrey Hepburn. For him, the petite personality was the ideal representative of his fashion and inspired the French designer. Givenchy was also regarded as a co-inventor of the “Little Blacks”, which speaks for his classic, timeless inventions, with which he equipped the ladies in particular. His mentor at the time was Christobal Balenciaga, whom he had met in New York in 1953. For him this was a great role model and inspired Givenchys fashion.
In 1957, Hubert de Givenchy and his brother Jean Claude de Givenchy founded Givenchy S. A. perfumes. The chair was taken by Jean Claude, the fashion designer’s older brother. In the same year, the two entrepreneurs created the first fragrance, the name “L´Interdit” and dedicated it to Audrey Hepburn. However, this came onto the market only years later. In the same year, the fragrance “Le De” was launched. Two years later a fragrance for men followed for the first time, “Monsieur de Givenchy”. Since then, several fragrances have been created by Givenchy and have been sold in black.
Kim Kardashian wears Givenchy
Kim Kardashian caused a particular stir in 2014 when she stepped before the altar in a Givenchy wedding dress. Of course, their appearance caused a sensation in the media and was the topic of conversation No. 1. In general, the unique robes are also with prominent customers, such as Anne Hathaway, Julianne Moore, Diane Kruger and even the English Royals.
Since 2005, the rather unknown Italian designer Riccardo Tisci has been in charge of the company’s haute couture and prêt-à-porter collections. From 2008 he also took over the management of men’s fashion. He left the company in 2017 and handed over responsibility to former Chloé designer Claire Waight Keller. When she joined the company, she made history as the first female chief designer of the company.

bags: Dead Antigona
With the model “Tote Antigona” the luxury label landed an absolute hit! The practical handbag provides plenty of storage space and can be used both as a leisure bag and for work. Available in different sizes and colors, it is a real eye-catcher, with the additional shoulder strap a real all-rounder and super practical. Most models are made in Italy from high-quality processed leather and shipped all over the world from there.
All the company’s other bags are also classic and timeless in design. Produced in high quality, they are available in all colour shades, no matter whether blue or black enthusiastic customers all over the world. The simple appearance is of great advantage, as it makes everyday combining easier.
Accessories: small leather goods & bath shoes
The popular “bath slippers” cost a small fortune, but are very popular with the customers of the luxury label. Here you can see the model in the red-white version, they are also available in black, pink and white. Key rings, purses and sunglasses are also very popular.
But the label not only covers the classic area, but also the cool, rather darker aesthetics! Statements and large lettering decorate parts such as clutches or pullovers. Designer Clare Waight Keller is particularly enthusiastic about this with the company’s younger clientele. Due to the nevertheless clean design and the straight form, even the more rocky Pieces make clear statements in the fashion scene.
Fragrances: Fresh and bitter
The feminine fragrances of the French company are a real hit in every respect. Due to the simple design of the packaging and the flowery fresh scents, the label reaches a wide range of customers. The fragrances are at the same time very engaging, but not too intrusive in smell and thus result in a perfect note on the skin!
The scents “Eau de Givenchy Rosée” and “Eau de Givenchy”

Again, head designer Clare Waight Keller was in charge of this show, creating unique fashion that was celebrated on the catwalks of Paris Fashion Week by a discerning audience. She presented flowing robes and straight cuts. Creations suitable for the office could be seen and strong accents in bright colours refined the chequered models. Different green tones, but also rust red, blue and pink brightened the generally rather dark grey and black stamped overall picture!
Givenchy Haute Couture FW 2019 / 2020
The Haute Couture Fall Winter Show 2019 / 2020 took place this year in Paris, France. The sumptuous robes created by designer Clare Waight Keller radiated an elegant style with a touch of extravagance. The designer, who had previously designed the everyday collections for the label, now dared to approach the somewhat different kind of fashion and shone with bravura. Here, too, light colours play a major role. Both playful and clean cuts were used and partly crowned with matching hair ornaments.
Givenchy SS 2020 Menswear
The Givenchy Spring Summer Fashion Show 2020 Menswear shows light tones and light fabrics. Both accents, in blue and green, and the minimalist style are reflected in the collection. They awaken the everyday in the looks and the individual garments can be easily combined with each other. The show took place in a park in Florence, where Queen Victoria was already staying in the late 1880s, early 1890s.
