Balenciaga: L’oeuvre au noir

Through July 16th 2017
I made a reference about this exhibition in my post about the use of black in Interiors last Thursday.  The Palais Galliera pays a tribute to Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895 – 1972), the most “Couture” of Couturiers, with an exhibition at the Musée Bourdelle entitled “Balenciaga, l’oeuvre au noir”. The exhibition resounds with a black harmony of an Haute Couture alchemist.  Black motivated Balenciaga : the backbone of his work was inspired by the folklore and traditions of his Spanish childhood. Black was this exceptionally skilled tailor’s preference. Black was a monastic influence on the master, about whom Dior once said: “Clothes were his religion”. Balenciaga saw black as a vibrant matter whether it be opaque
or transparent, mate or shiny – a dazzling interplay of light, that owes as much to the luxurious quality of the fabrics as to the apparent simplicity of the cut
