BALENCIAGA AND SPAIN by Hamish Bowles Book and Exhibition
January 6th 2011
This April, Skira Rizzoli will release another great publication, BALENCIAGA AND SPAIN by Hamish Bowles, in association with the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco. This unprecedented volume accompanies the first exhibition to consider the impact of Spain’s culture, history, and art on one of its greatest designers of the twentieth century. The release coincides with the exhibition’s move from the Queen Sophia Institute in NYC, to the de Young Museum in San Francisco, opening on March 26 and doubling what was originally on view.
Balenciaga and Spain is curated by Hamish Bowles, while both the exhibition and book feature accessorized couture ensembles gathered from museums and private collections from around the world for this impressive homage to the fashion icon.
