Balenciaga (and Spain) is in San Francisco! I went opening day and it was a pretty fantastic experience, for sure recommend going if you’re in the area. The exhibit is still going on now through July 4th at de Young Museum, located smack dab in the middle of Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
The Balenciaga and Spain exhibition features over a hundred haute couture garments, hats, and headdresses designed by Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895–1972), including illustrates of Balenciaga’s expansive creative vision, which incorporated references to Spanish art, bullfighting, dance, regional costume, and the pageantry of the royal court and religious ceremonies. It’s pretty breathtaking.
