I love the collection. I've never paid much respect (enough respect?) to Balenciaga. A wonderful thread and one I will keep coming back to. Cheers for the intro.

Balenciaga's website has recently updated the "Heritage" section with numerous treasures of the house archive in high quality: photo sessions, publications, advertisements, sketches... from the stage of Cristóbal Balenciaga in Paris. I share them:


LA MAISON BALENCIAGA (1937-1969)

I adore Balenciaga so much, this dress has to be one of my favourite designs. The lines, the simplicity, the purity.

never actually paid that much of attention to Balenciaga, specially with N. Guesquiere ... But this thread and the designs are just breathtaking, not too related with Cristobal's work.
Those shots are amazing, thanks Nicolasa

This thread is truly inspiring! I love how the fabrics drape and the silhouette is beautiful.

I know Balenciaga is famous for not giving interviews or speaking to the press, but there is apparently an interview from 1971 in The Times by Prudence Glyn....I am trying to track down a copy of it but I have not been successful so far -- if anyone has any leads/related images/etc. that would be amazing!!
