Hubert de Givenchy


Fabulous bright orange knit sweater by Hubert de Givenchy! The sweater has long sleeves, a loose jewel neck collar, and hits slightly above the hip. The famous Givenchy logo is featured on the front of the sweater, at the center of the collarbones - subtle but effective. The sweater is of the "Givenchy Sport" line that was heavily featured on the hit 1970s television series "Charlie's Angels"!

Givenchy is known best for his elegant and innovative haute couture. He began his career working under Elsa Schiaparelli, Jacques Fath, Robert Piguet, and Lucien Lelong. As a young man, he worked alongside Pierre Balmain and Christian Dior who were also making their mark on Parisian fashion.

Givenchy designed Audrey Hepburn’s iconic “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” dress, popularizing the modern “little black dress”. He also designed much of Hepburn’s personal wardrobe. Givenchy was always reinventing himself and with that, revolutionizing the state of fashion. He is credited for creating the “baby doll” dress and “balloon coat,” two designs emblematic of the 1960s.
