Hubert de Givenchy, un destin haute couture = 紀梵希的時尚王國

[TT507 .H823 2016 DVD]

"紀梵希 (Hubert de Givenchy) 被讚譽為「二十世紀最才華洋溢的服裝設計師」。 他憑藉著獨樹一幟的優雅格調, 並且在巴黎世家創辦人巴倫夏加的鼓勵之下, 二十四歲即自創品牌, 隨後在時尚界享有「時尚巨人」的盛名, 半個世紀以來屹立至今。 他是銀幕女神奧黛麗赫本的幕後推手, 從《龍鳳配》, 《甜姐兒》, 尤其是《第凡內早餐》的黑色洋裝蔚為風潮, 所有人爭相模仿, 成為巴黎少女的制服, 這就是他一手創造的「赫本旋風」。 崇拜他的時尚信徒包括溫莎公爵夫人, 奧黛麗赫本以及美國總統夫人賈桂琳甘迺迪。 1963年, 美國總統甘迺迪遇刺身亡, 紀梵希甚至為賈桂琳設計出席葬禮的喪服。 紀梵希為女性設計的服裝, 對象從八歲到八十歲, 從白天上班, 逛街到晚上出席宴會的衣服都有, 適合任何時刻, 任何場合。 紀梵希對時尚的熱情, 不但不隨著光陰流逝, 而是與日俱進。 1995年退休之後,直到今天,紀梵希仍每天創作與畫畫,他確信生活的小確幸就是這麼隨手可得。" --Distributor's website
