Balenciaga : magicien de la dentelle = master of lace by France) Cité internationale de la dentelle et de la mode (Calais( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in French and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ouvrage publié à l'occasion de l'exposition présentée à la Cité de la Dentelle et de la Mode, Calais, du 17 avril au 30 août 2015. Connu pour ses merveilleux tailleurs et manteaux de si belle construction, Cristóbal Balenciaga fut aussi le maître incontesté de ravissantes robes en dentelle. La technique, la légèreté, la simplicité qui s'y déployaient font toujours rêver. Ces volants si légers, ces incrustations presque invisibles sublimaient la dentelle et lui ont donné ses lettres de noblesse. Que ce soit avec la guipure, plus lourde mais au dessin plus graphique, ou avec le tulle vaporeux ou la dentelle Chantilly si légère, Balenciaga a traité chacune de ses robes avec un talent extraordinaire

En hommage à Cristobal Balenciaga (1895-1972), le "couturier des couturiers", le Palais Galliera présente au musée Bourdelle une exposition inédite : "Balenciaga, l'oeuvre au noir". Noire, l'irrigation de l'oeuvre de Balenciaga dont les racines puisent dans l'Espagne folklorique et traditionnelle de son enfance. Noir, le goût de l'épure de ce technicien hors pair. Noires, les inspirations monacales du maître dont Christian Dior disait : "Le vêtement était sa religion". Ebauches et construction, silhouettes et volumes, noir et lumière ou noir et couleurs, les thèmes se succèdent, subtilement mis en valeur par les photographies monochromes de Pierre Even. Complété de plusieurs essais et d'une riche iconographie (Richard Avedon, Henry Clarke, Gordon Parks ou encore Irving Penn), cet ouvrage résonne des sonorités noires d'un alchimiste de la haute couture

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1936, Cristobal Balenciaga opened a fashion house in Paris, after fleeing the Spanish civil war; within a couple of seasons he had raised fashion to the level of art. Christian Dior called Balenciaga 'the master of us all', while Coco Chanel claimed that he alone was 'a couturier in the truest sense of the word ...the others are simply fashion designers'. In the Fifties he revolutionised women's silhouette, experimenting with the semi-fitted shape, the sack dress, the cocoon and the babydoll. His innovative designs were famously easy to wear, with one diplomat's wife quipping that she could play golf in her Balenciaga gown. In the Sixties, despite the waning power of couture, he created some of his most imaginative clothes, culminating in the bold, fluid lines of his last two collections. Always something of an enigma, he preferred to let his clothes speak for themselves. Vogue, the international fashion bible, has charted the careers of designers through the decades. Its unique archive of photographs, taken by the leading photographers of the day from Cecil Beaton to Mario Testino, and original illustrations, together with its stable of highly respected fashion writers, make Vogue the most authoritative and prestigious source of reference on fashion
