Must Have


Book, 1989

This fantastic monograph highlighting the king of haute couture - Cristobol Balenciaga - is the most comprehensive and extensive collection of text, important imagery and sketches by the Spanish couturier ever to be compiled in a single volume. Having searched far and wide for material on Balenciaga, trolling everywhere from online outlets to small book stores around this world, this publication, originally released in 1989 by Marie-Andree Jouve, is hard to beat. At nearly 350 pages with over 600 images documenting Balenciaga’s life, designs, inspiration and clients throughout a thirty year period, from roughly 1937 to 1968, this book is a necessary addition to any fashion lover’s Library.
