One of the many nice things about the internets is that the exclusive world of fashion no longer seems entirely unreachable or unbridgeable. I was browsing the Balenciaga website (why? I don't know either.) and their Heritage section is a trove of historic fashion treasures. I just spent the morning browsing through their images and remembering some of the outfits from Balenciaga and Spain, the de Young exhibition that I attended during Spring Break. These old couture images are just so gorgeous. What a genius.
Drool over more images at the Balenciaga website.
