As long as the Musée Galliera (Paris’ fashion museum) is in the process of renovation, some of its activities are being held at the Cité de la Mode et du Design. While this beautiful space has been a bit misused, hopefully shows like Balenciaga: fashion collector, and White Drama by Comme des Garçons will bring some life to it.
The first show is a dialogue between some of the pieces collected by the Spanish master during his life and pieces created by Balenciaga himself. A perfect way to get a deeper understanding of where inspiration and homage meet.
The second show, White Drama, is the title of Rei Kawakubo’s –founder and director of Comme des Garçons- Spring/Summer 2012 collection of the Japanese brand. A great opportunity to explore in detail another jaw dropping suite of crazy yet amazing creations of this powerful company.
Le Musée Galliera poursuit sa programmation hors les murs aux Docks – cité de la Mode et du Design, avec la présentation simultanée de deux expositions : l’une consacrée à Rei Kawakubo, l’autre à Cristóbal Balenciaga.
Both exhibitions run through October 7th. More info HERE.
