The Man Behind The Bottle
Acknowledged by peers, the women he dressed, and the press as “the most Parisian of fashion designers”, Robert Piguet, while programmed to be a financier, was, in fact, destined to become one of the legendary figures of haute couture.
Robert Piguet made two indelible and ever-lasting contributions to fashion. Notably, the designers he employed and encouraged; haute couturiers whose creativity, inspiration and passion have influenced, dramatically, the worlds of fashion, film, art, beauty and the way women today look, dress and view themselves. Pierre Balmain, Marc Bohan and Hubert de Givenchy all trained at the hands of this master as did Christian Dior who said “Robert Piguet taught me the virtues of simplicity through which true elegance must come.”
There are the fragrances, a contribution of unrivalled magnitude. It has been observed that Piguet’s perfumes – Bandit, Fracas and Baghari, “have a particular feel, very characteristic of his trademarks: strict adherence to good taste, true luxury, a horror of the commonplace and an innate sense of seduction” True classics of timeless beauty and value that endure far beyond season and trend.Designer Robert Piguet has 25 perfumes. Robert Piguet is an old perfume house. The earliest edition was created in 1944 and the newest is from 2014. Robert Piguet fragrances were made in collaboration with perfumers Aurelien Guichard and Germaine Cellier.
Every collection a reflection of his infallible eye, refined simplicity and the quality that most defined Piguet: elegance. In style. In character. In inspiration
