10 fashion moments of the week: Givenchy pays homage to Hubert, inside Kylie’s closet, and more

Less than 24 hours ago, news of Hubert de Givenchy’s passing rippled. The French couturier died on Saturday at his home outside Paris. Minutes later, Instagram was engulfed with tributes for him, including three archival images from his namesake fashion maison.

Monsieur Givenchy was an iconic figure, after all. He was famed for his no-frills take on elegance, and he dressed the most renowned women in history — the likes of Jackie O, Grace Kelly, but perhaps most notably, Audrey Hepburn. His indelible masterpieces for the British actress include Breakfast at Tiffany’s little black dress, Funny Face’s shoulder-baring red gown, and Sabrina’s brocade-accentuated white evening gown among countless others.

On a lighter note, this post-fashion month wind-down ushers in a series of much-welcomed memes. Several took jabs at Balenciaga’s avant-garde layering technique, while one of our favourite Instagram fashion critics goes to work, analysing what the designers had on their moodboards.

From Hermès’ comic strips to a peek inside Kylie Jenner’s Birkin-filled closet, catch up on the week’s best fashion ‘grams here.
