View Press Release
Born on the 27th February 1927 in Beauvais, Hubert Taffin de Givenchy began collaborating with great fashion designers in 1945, first with Jacques Fath later with Elsa Schiaparelli and finally with Robert Piquet before presenting his first haute couture collection and opening his own fashion house on the 2nd February 1952.
A major figure in the world of fashion, the name Hubert de Givenchy alone embodies the quintessence of elegance, and much more broadly of the Grand Goût français. During his lifetime, he brought together an exceptional collection of 17th and 18th century furniture and works of art as well as masterworks from the modern era which he displayed in his various houses with the same high standards, the same creativity and the same sense of absolute refinement as those he demonstrated in his profession as couturier.
Christie's has the great honour of organizing the sale of his exceptional collection of works of art from his last two last residences, the Hôtel d'Orrouer in Paris and the Manoir du Jonchet in the Loire valley.
