Givenchy si Hepburn

Originalul designer si muza lui actrita au definit timp de 40 de ani o relatie care a devenit un standard de aur pentru aproape fiecare brand care se respecta.

,,Ale lui sunt singurele haine in care sunt eu insami. Este mai mult decat un couturier, este un creator de personalitate”, Audrey Hepburn despre Hubert de Givency.

Pentru ca povestea dintre Hubert de Givency si Audrey Hepburn precede timpul. A durat aproape jumatate de secol, 40 de ani, si a devenit un standard pentru aproape fiecare brand care se respecta.

Givenchy si Hepburn s-au cunoscut inainte ca oricare dintre ei sa fie cu adevarat faimos – designerul isi deschisese de curand casa de moda iar primul ei film major inca nu fusese lansat. S-au lipit unul de celalalt prin sapte filme, din 1954 pana in 1987. El a facut nu doar rochia alba pe care a purtat-o pentru a castiga Oscarul pentru cea mai buna actrita in 1954 (“Roman Holiday” ) dar a realizat si rochia ei de mireasa (pentru a doua casatorie, cu Andrea Dotti).

Cand Givenchy si-a prezentat parfumul, L’Interdit, in 1957, Hepburn era imaginea acestuia pentru ca el a facut-o pentru ea, nu pentru ca ar fi fost fost platita.

Cand femeile cumpara Givency, ele fac o investitie pe termen lung in eleganta. Pe masura ce colegii lui Hubert au devenit cunoscuti pentru simbolurile lor – perlele si cameliile Chanel, jacheta New Look si Bar ale lui Dior – el este si a fost intotdeauna cunoscut pentru Muza Sa .

Desigur, a imbracat mai multe doamne celebre, nu doar pe Hepburn. Fie si doar daca ar fi sa amintim pe Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly si Elizabeth Taylor. Insa relatia sa cu Audrey era deasupra tuturor.

Poate ca e imposibil sa recreezi ceea ce au avut timp de 40 de ani impreuna Givency si Hepburn. Lumea digitala se misca prea repede, atentia oamenilor se pierde rapid, vedetele nu mai au nici o atractie mistica pentru nimic. Si nici un individ sau marca nu vrea sa fie atat de dependent de celalalt, intr-un fel cu totul si cu totul special. Poate ca totul e doar istorie.

Dar relatia lor a fost o relatie care a avut continut. Si chiar si astazi, mai ales astazi, continutul conteaza.

The moment I reinvented myself, these were the words that seemed to fit-Travel Man. To see and feel became more important than to have and use. And then I started my journey. Me and my camera. And what I discovered I shared with others, in my own words. And I like to think that because of my journey,someone somewhere discovered the world,walking on my path. And if that really happened, it is the greatest reward for the efforts and adventures of my travels. At the end of the road, the only thing you still carry with you on the Greatest Journey is just... your memories. To gather stuff, to buy houses, cars,refrigerators, to indulge yourself with an extra pair of shoes, beside the other 6 you already have, to get another bank loan, to build another pool.... Such human actions, simple, routine, normal. So earthbound. And so farther from the sky. Because, let's be honest, how many of us, busy and head down tracing the worldly goods, remember to look up to the sky, watching in awe a murmuration of starlings, listening to the perfect whistle of the blackbird, how many of us still feel the thrill of a sea gull's cry, how many still bow when admiring a colony of penguins hatching their eggs at -50 C? We cannot but bow before nature and, as small creatures that we ourselves are, learn from fellow creatures, feathered, furred, with claws or fangs. We should better stay afar and watch, we should not bend nature to fit our modest dimensions. We should better watch and learn and respect their space, we should admire nature's wonders and do that today. Not tomorrow. Because tomorrow might already be too late. For them, but most of all for us. The only form of movement is the journey.
