In a letter written shortly before his death, Hubert de Givenchy recalls the milestones in his life as a couturier: the houses that first believed in him, the move to open an atelier in his own name, and his encounters with Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, both true muses for him. He evokes the birth of a style, the modernity of the “separates” concept and the origin of Parfums Givenchy. And he pays homage to those who accompanied him at Givenchy over the years.
