Balenciaga world

That’s not just another alternative aleatory post about something I think is aesthetically pretty, well, the thing is, I’m reading this amazing book about Balenciaga’s live, and I realized that I fell in love with  him.
This Spaniard was not only a great couturier, but a symbol of his generation.
A contemporary of Dior, Balenciaga could not only reinvent the haute couture, but also was its last exponent in the golden decade 1957-67.
He was able to create a whole new shape and to provoke desire in women of all ages, and for decades, the inventor of minimalism has been inspiring lots of designers,  as Miuccia Prada and Jill Sanders.
