The Balenciaga Series 4

And so I´m back! :)

But before I´ll show you my latest travel photos from Galicia, let me finish first the Balenciaga Series. This would be the last part of the series. Unfortunately the gallery where the gowns were displayed was so dark, only two of the gowns photographed well. Good thing, these two are the most beautiful too. ;)

The upper portion of this gown is a ¨cloque¨. The most expensive fabric ( probably due to the embroidery, etc.) of that time. You can see more current designs and  jaw dropping dresses made from this kind of fabric at the Museé de la Mode et du Textile in Paris. This time the dresses were designed by Nicholas Ghesquière. The museum´s quite near the Louvre entrance and so you´ll never get lost. ;)

Color blocking at it´s best. This long two-piece gown was worn by the late Princess Grace of Monaco in the 1960s. Dahlings, color blocking existed a long, long time ago. As the old cliché goes: Fashion repeats itself. And so it shows. ;)

As I´ve told you before, Guetaria ( Getaria) is a small fishing village in the northern part of Spain. Here´s a snapshot of it´s port.

What I wore:

It was a super hot day when we visited the place and so  the super casual dresser that is moi wore shorts. hehe!

old silk top- Mango, shorts- H&M, bag- Longchamp le Pliage tote

So how´s your summer so far? Planning a trip somewhere or have you just had your trip like me? Please come back soon for a series of posts from the coastal part of Galicia. You´ll love it. :)

Ciao for now!
