👇🏻 Here they explain the fashion reasons why these films have been chosen 👇🏻
Inspiration or mannequin for the greatest fashion creators.
Although whenever you talk about Hepburn and fashion it is inevitable to think about Givenchy and Tiffany’s, the actress was also dressed by some of the most exalted couturiers like Paco Rabanne, André Courrèges, Michèle Rosier, Ken Scott o Foale & Tuffin; by the brightest costume designers of all time, how Ceasy beaton and the fabulous edith head (who managed to lift the precious golden statuette a couple of times for extolling the actress with her creations in Sabrina y Holidays in Rome); and his feline gaze with long eyelashes and thick eyebrows portrayed by some of the greatest photographers of the golden age of the fashion press as Norman Parkinson, Douglas Kirkland, Richard Avedon o Irving Penn.
Coco Chanel already said it: “Fashions change, the style remains”. And the Sala Equis team reaffirms that this phrase is one of the best it can «summarize why Audrey Hepburn remains an icon thanks to her charm, talent and beauty» An icon that does not go out of style and that is far above it. As Audrey Hepburn herself said: «To have beautiful eyes, look out for the good of others. To have beautiful lips, utter only words of kindness. And for balance, walk with the certainty that you are never alone«.
Coco, Audrey, Hubert and Sabrina.
They tell me from the living room when I asked them about the Cinema is Fashion cycle that there is a very curious anecdote that unites Coco Canel with Audrey. Both legends of elegant twentieth-century feminism were closely linked by their careers and personalities. Chanel pioneered the little black dress que, thirty-five years after his first sketch, Hepburn immortalized with Hubert de Givenchy's design in front of the Tiffany’s jewelry store window in the film Breakfast at Tiffany's. But this was not the first time that the art of Hubert and Hepburn merged before a camera.
Several years before, the actress appeared at the one piece of the dressmaker to prepare Sabrina. When Givenchy went to meet Miss Hepburn, he was disappointed to see that it was not the great diva Katharine Hepburn but the young Audrey. Sin embargo, that anecdote would be the beginning of a great friendship between muse and artist that would be immortalized in history with other masterpieces of film and fashion such as My Fair Lady o A face with an angel.
