Swiss fashion designer who launched his couture house in Paris in 1933. Robert Piguet had worked under Redfern and Poiret; in turn, he provided training or support for a number of younger designers including Balmain, Hubert de Givenchy and Christian Dior.
The house closed in 1951, and Piguet passed away in 1953. The ownership of the fragrance business has since changed hands several times, and is currently owned by Fashion Fragrances & Cosmetics. The house has reissued a number of the brand's older fragrances, and starting in 2011, a series of new compositions.
