New Balenciaga Website
the new website is up! (I didn't think that this belongs to any existing threads, but if any of the Mod feels so, feel free to merge it )

I got an email with the udpate, and the exhibition will be held in Paris through the second half of the year 2006. Can't wait to visit!

The new pictures on the website really give you a good idea of the new collection in a 3-d way. It's amazing. I'm glad that they don't present the front looks only like runway pics normally do...and the pictures are very nice.

The site is unbelievable!

Although they've only got two videos, I can't believe one of them is actually the S/S show from 1960! It's amazing to see the work of the great couturier himself in action! It's definitely refreshing to see the stuff without all the theatrics ... it's a return to the basis of the fashion show - the clothes. Pity the video only shows a few looks and the models walk really fast (or it could be the video's speed). Some of the filming angles are also a bit too far.

Still, the site's phenomenal! Love it!

I found that, too. It makes it less convenient...but considering all the nice pics they added on the website, it's worth the sacrifice
btw, now we figured out what the capsule collections include

Hi sorry to hear that, I went on Friday and its beautiful, amazing to see Cristobal's and then Nicolas'. Nicolas' are on special momies created for this exhibition. I went to the website again and you can find a pdf article in english or french on the site under news/events, and under events there are pictures of the momies. apparently they are also doing a short video on the exhibition.
