Robert Piguet (1901-1953) reigned with Redfern and later Poiret; he opened his own house in 1933 in the Rue de Cirque. Piguet was dubbed ‘The most Parisian of fashion designers’ and his house was the training ground for Dior, Bohan, Galanos, Balmain and Givenchy. Dior was moved to say that “Robert Piguet taught me the virtues of simplicity through which true elegance must come.”
He always retained a strong House identity; his clothes were elegant, delicate and simple; though he was also well known for vivid colours and dramatic silhouettes in his evening wear. The House of Piguet closed in 1951 and Piguet died in 1953.
