Balenciaga, robe du soir, 1964.

In a nutshell, the beauty of haute couture.

Presented outside of the walls of Musée Bourdelle (15th), this exhibition from Palais Galliera, begins a spanish season - which will be followed by 'Costumes espagnols entre ombre et lumière' (Spanish costumes from dark to bright) at Maison Victor Hugo from June 21 to September 24 2017, before becoming 'Mariano Fortuny' at Palais Galliera from October 4 to January 7 2018.

'Balenciaga, l’œuvre au noir' (‘Balenciaga, working in black’), will look at the black tones within the alchemy of haute couture. Balenciaga pieces are showcased in plaster casts within the Great Hall, with others found in Bourdelle’s studio - acting as a great contrast wixth the 19th century sculptor. 

In a nutshell, the beauty of haute couture.
