HUBERT DE GIVENCHY - Thyssen Museum, Madrid
I see Paniculata in this design...Don´t you?????
This retrospective of costumes and hats of one of the most influential designers of the late twentieth century is notable for its association with famous characters that brought the creations of this great French couturier; is the case of Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy or the Duchess of Windsor, among other chic people.
You can see the dresses with pictures of actresses, socialites and first ladies, sometimes accompanied by the creator.
Several of the rooms were chaired by extraordinary pictures of the museum’s own collection; Zurbarán, Rothko … are some of the painters to Givenchy’s creations were associated more or less directly.
On any case, a Luxury for your sight, as were acclimated nicely thanks to the work of Paloma Alarcó, Paula Luengo and the rest of the museum team, who have managed to mix both types of creations without charging excessively every room. There is quite what to watch without charging excess objects.
