Getaria, Spain. 6th of June 2011. The opening of the Cristobal Balenciaga Museoa.
The prime of Cristobal Balenciaga. Or is this really the enduring legacy of Balenciaga? Forever desirable? And just as coveted? Will we take to our beds and grieve like the Contessa Mona von Bismarck when we discover that none of the extraordinary pieces on display are available for order? (well, yes, maybe... I do tend to be very dramatic when it comes to clothing: I am in LOVE, I am OBSESSED, I HAVE to HAVE it, it WILL be mine... you know, that sort of thing:) And no, Balenciaga. Edition is not the same. Ain't nothing like the real thing babies.
A bubblegum pink cropped Balenciaga jacket from the Summer of 1961. I don't need to tell our RARE vintage blog readers how to wear it because, I know, you know, how. Exactly.
