If you have a passion for Fashion and/or sculpture, today is the last day to admire Cristóbal Balenciaga's most incredible black creations. Indeed, Balenciaga, L'Œuvre au Noir is currently displayed at the Musée Bourdelle, between Antoine Bourdelle's sculpted works. The result is an amazing conversation between one of the most forward-thinking designers of his time and one of Rodin's most brilliant assistants. Sharp, draped, cut-out black dresses make a statement among the statues, highlighting the one-of-a-kind skills of the Spanish couturier, while the beauty of his beloved black fabrics - silk taffeta, faille, organza, gazar... - is emphasized by the purity of Bourdelle's white marble sculptures and plaster casts. As Balenciaga once said, "a couturier must be an architect for design, a sculptor for shape, a painter for color, a musician for harmony, and a philosopher for temperance." I couldn't have said it better!
