法国著名服装设计师于贝尔·德·纪梵希(Hubert de Givenchy)于周六去世,享年91岁。

Philippe Venet, his longtime companion and a former couture designer, confirmed the death.

纪梵希的配偶、曾是一位高级女士时装设计师的菲利普·韦内证实了这一消息。

Mr. Givenchy upheld a standard of quintessentially romantic elegance in fashion for more than four decades, dressing the likes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly and memorably Audrey Hepburn, in a little black dress, in the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

纪梵希在超过40年的时间里,秉承一种典型的浪漫典雅风格,受到杰奎琳·肯尼迪·奥纳西斯(Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis)、格蕾丝·凯莉(Grace Kelly)和奥黛丽·赫本(Audrey Hepburn)等人的青睐。在电影《蒂芙尼的早餐》中,赫本身穿纪梵希黑色小礼服的形象成为荧幕经典。

Mr. Givenchy was emblematic of a generation of gentlemanly designers who established their couture houses in postwar Paris, nurturing personal relationships with customers and creating entire collections with specific women in mind.

纪梵希被广泛认为是一代绅士设计师的典型代表,他们在战后的巴黎建立了高级时装店,培养了与顾客的个人关系,并为特定的女性创造了整个系列。

Since his retirement from fashion in 1995, Mr. Givenchy remained active in the arts as an antiques expert for Christie’s, the Château de Versailles and the Louvre museum. He also managed the French branch of the World Monuments Fund for several years.

自1995年退休后,纪梵希作为佳士得、凡尔赛宫和卢浮宫博物馆的古董专家继续活跃于艺术领域,并负责管理世界遗产基金法国分部数年。
