loves this… because the maxi dress is a thing of genius and this
Balenciaga one is no exception. Indeed it makes quite the example
of itself, its floor length glamour is softened and lightened for
perfect spring daywear, with spindly straps, a gentle racer back
and the perfect minute monochrome print. There is no risk of
getting carried away with the casual connotations however, not when
you're wrapped in 100% silk from top to toe.
Balenciaga is a fashion house founded by Spanish designer
Cristobal Balenciaga who opened his first boutique in Spain in 1918
but who was then forced to close due to the Spanish Civil War and
move to Paris. His first runway show in Paris was greatly
influenced by the Spanish Renaissance and he made a name for
himself almost overnight. Some of his contributions to the
fashion world include the high waisted baby doll dress, the balloon
skirt and the sack dress.
