Robert Piguet

Robert Piguet was born in Switzerland. At 17, he left his family home for Paris where he found employment first with Redfern and later Paul Poiret, his lifelong and quite possibly, the most influential designer in the history of haute couture. 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."
And, then, of course, there are the fragrances, a contribution of unrivalled magnitude. It has been observed that Piguet's perfume's - V, 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.
