In 1952, Count Hubert de Givenchy founded what is considered a real temple of fashion, the maison that bears his name.
Givenchy became famous for having dressed many beautiful women of the show, such as Audrey Hepburn, his muse and fraternal friend, who wore THE unforgettable little black dress in 'Breakfast at Tiffany', but also Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Elizabeth Taylor, just to quote the best known ones.
High society personalities as well, such as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Princess Grace and Carolina of Monaco, have chosen to wear Givenchy’s creations thus becoming real style icons.
Refined elegance, sensuality, firmness and simplicity, these are the key features of the Givenchy style, unique and timeless, faithful to itself but always up to date and trendy. The choice for those who love essential but inimitable elegance.
The GV 7002 is the essence of the Givenchy style: linearity, simplicity and purity of style. A frame that immediately becomes the protagonist and makes any outfit unique and special. Just have a look at the gorgeous Kim Kardashian West!
The refined contemporary style of the maison is reflected in the GV 7057 model: metal frame, mirrored lenses and a pilot shape create a breezy and trendy pair of sunglasses. Perfect to match a casual look like a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, but at the same time, great to be combined with a more serious outfit giving an unconventional touch to it.
Eyeglasses are an accessory that can tell a lot about someone’s personality but, at the same time, they have the very important function to help us see well while feeling comfortable. The GV 0079 has all these characteristics. Lightweight frame, wide lenses and a shape that suits everyone. The purity of the lines and the refined combination of metal and acetate are the hallmark of the Givenchy style.

Finally, the brand new SHARK GV 7088/S: simple lines enriched with elements that bring light and personality to a pair of glasses with a classic round shape.
The double golden bridge, the temples with the rounded detail that incorporates the shape of the lenses and the inserts on the front that simulate a clip-on, give boldness to this beautiful frame that will accompany us during summer 2018.
Thank you to Count Hubert from all of us at Otticanet for being a guide, a symbol and an inspiration!
