Fashion in Paris: exhibitions and summer sales!

With the beautiful days of spring and summer come great fashion events in Paris. The Palais Galliera, in collaboration with the Bourdelle Museum, presents an exhibition devoted to the Spanish couturier Balenciaga as the summer sales begin! Take advantage of the close proximity of the Hotel Convention Montparnasse to the Beaugrenelle Shopping Centre and find yourself some amazing bargains.


The Balenciaga collection, a tribute to the couturier’s couturier

On the occasion of the Spanish season at the Palais Galliera, this superb museum of fashion and fashion history presents ‘Balenciaga; l'Oeuvre au Noir’. Until July 16th and along with an extramural at the Bourdelle Museum, this exhibition brings together over a hundred iconic pieces, numerous documents and preparatory drawings by Cristóbal Balenciaga (1895-1972), the couturier’s couturier. The predominantly black collection reminds us that, to Balenciaga, black was a vibrant material, sometimes opaque or transparent, glossy or matt, the interplay of light depending  as much on the sumptuousness of the fabrics as on the apparent simplicity of the cut.

You’ll have the opportunity to admire more than 70 items of masterful couture, including day clothes, cocktail dresses, evening outfits, mantillas, boleros, capes and more. Discover how the designer used embroidery, lace, silk taffeta, jet beads, satin ribbons, guipures, sequins and silk velvet to create unique pieces with a timeless quality.
