INSIDE HUBERT DE GIVENCHY’S PRIVATE ANTIQUES COLLECTION

Tweet


Hubert de Givenchy retired from the haute couture business nearly 20 years ago, but the design baron’s sophisticated taste still turns heads. On Monday, September 8, at Christie’s in Paris, he unveils “Empire,” an exhibition that salutes the swaggering neoclassical chic of the Empire Français, which ended 200 years ago. From gilded armchairs made for Empress Josephine to a ravishing vermeil soup tureen that Jean-Baptiste-Claude Odiot created for Bonaparte in-law Prince Camillo Borghese, dozens of objects from Givenchy’s and other private collections will be displayed in a gallery decorated by the couturier-connoisseur, who was inspired by period settings. “Empire” complements the Biennale des Antiquaires art and antiques fair, held at the Grand Palais from September 11 to 21.
