Suit, Hubert de Givenchy, Paris, France: 1955, wool with moiré silk panels in the skirt. "This ensemble was designed by the Parisian couturier Hubert de Givenchy (b. 1927) for Leslie Caron (b. 1931), the French film actress and dancer. It was made for a play called 'Orvet' by Jean Renoir, who was Caron's great friend and mentor. He wrote it for her, and also directed it. It was first performed at the Theatre de la Renaissance, Paris, on 12 March 1955."

Jean Renoir (French drama & farce director: Boudu sauvé des eaux [Boudu Saved from Drowning, 1932], La Grande illusion [Grand Illusion, 1937], La Bête humaine [The Human Beast, 1938], La Règle du jeu [The Rules of the Game, 1939], Le Carrosse d'or [The Golden Coach, 1953]).
Renoir (2012). Lovely to watch, Renoir is one of the most beautifully shot films I've seen in years. A story of Renoir , his family and his muse, it's as though you've dropped into the south of France in 1915. Formidable.
