Givenchy and Giacometti

G AND G

on march 6th christies will be having a sale in paris of hubert de givenchy’s collection of furniture and objects designed by sculptor diego giacometti/ see details here. the sale, les giacometti d’hubert de givenchy, will be proceeded by a week long view, in tribute to giacometti’s work and his close friendship with givenchy.

givenchy is one of my style idols and i’ve blogged about all of his homes. his taste and restraint is inspiring. givenchy was given a gift by a friend in the early 60’s, it was a table by giacometti. that’s when their friendship started and the collecting began. diego was known for his hammered iron work. bunny mellon was also a fan. she was an avid collector of giacometti’s furniture as well.

givenchy, who is now 90, said “with this sale, i want to pay further tribute to him (giacometti), an additional recognition which he does not need, but shows how important he is to me.”

G and G- truly a special friendship and a beautiful collaboration. a piece of it can be yours.
