INTO THE ARCHIVES... Cristòbal Balenciaga 1963 and Balenciaga FW2006//7

Today I'd like to introduce you to the new segment 'Into The Archives', that reveals inspirations which are taken from previous designs of the same designer or fashion house, in order to diversify that kind of operation from the 'Inspirations' I release in general.

With this post I recommend the book:
