    One thought on “Balenciaga and Spain”

    1. Just interviewed Mr. Bowles and he's got quite a lot to say about Balenciaga. He was a fascinating, austere, terribly chic designer. Looking forward to the book.

    2. Wonderful. An excellent book, great reproductions and insights into the influences of Balenciaga. Wish I saw the exhibition.
