According to Jean Cocteau, "fashion dies young." But Balenciaga is an exception. He became the most creative couturier of his time, with an unequaled body of work that balanced the simple and the measured with an eccentric, abstract boldness. His Spanish roots combined the austere with a beautiful baroque violence. In the history of haute couture, Balenciaga remains the ultimate designer.
