Those are all breathtakingly magnificent, DosViolines! I just found this very strange hat.

Indeed, but I like the fact that it seems so different then what we'd expect from him. It's kinda boho :p

I can only translate this part: moiré color ivory accompanied with a cap of the same weave embroidered in pedrería, and a tuille veil. c. 1965.

Thanks for the article

I would never have thought that she would collect vintage Balenciaga.
When I think of Stephanie Seymour it's all Axl Rose and guitar solos

There's a great new book (September 1, 2007) on the life and work of Cristobal Balenciaga by author Leslie Ellis Miller.

It's called simply "Balenciaga", and it delves deeply into his Spanish heritage and influence.

I highly recommend it.
