I am in one of my favorite cities, Paris, for a bit of work and a bit of play. And one of the first things I wanted to do was to go see an exhibit of one of my favorite designers: Balenciaga. It is a tiny eclectic show. A cabinet of curiosities collected by Balenciaga and designed by Balenciaga...
It is a show that combines some of the textiles, laces and embroideries that Balenciaga collected for his own personal collection (and exhibited for the first time) with some wonderful designs from Balenciaga.
