A dynamic gilt metal/blue glass cabuchon necklace, Givenchy, France, 1980s

About the Item

An outstanding Givenchy necklace in a lustrous matt gilded metal, the seven front sections set with a deep sapphire cabuchon. This is a true statement necklace, from the celebrated French couture house. One of the great late 20th century couturiers, with a highly distinctive aesthetic, Givenchy founded his eponymous fashion house in 1952. Previously he worked under Jacques Fath (another true stylist) and Lucien Lelong, before becoming artistic director for the legendary Elsa Schiaparelli. Famed for his deeply elegant clothes, and ease of style, he attracted Hollywood and other celebrities, the most famous being Audrey Hepburn, , who created a cinematic legend with Holly Gollightly in ‘Breakfast At Tiffanys’, wearing Givenchy’s designs throughout, the Little Black Dress now being a Hollywood icon. He was also the first designer to create a ‘pret-a-porter’ or ‘ready to wear’ line.
