PARIS IV in the '50s
Inspired by the “wind of change” of the Post-Liberation, when Paris was the european capital of the “exciting era”, a city packed with all the arts. Think about the Rive Gauche and its intellectual “café society”, when Café de Flore in Saint-Germain-des-Près was the haunt of the post-war bohemians such as existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, novelist Boris Vian or singer Juliette Gréco. Think about haute couture and some of the houses that are today one-word icons: Dior, Balenciaga and Givenchy. Think about Audrey Hepburn, starring in 9 movies in Paris, or the legendary dresses designed for her by Givenchy in the '50s and you will agree on her most famous quote: “Paris is always a good idea!"
