Balenciaga: the elegance of the hat
Wednesday, 15 September 17:00
* Private and exclusive events for members of the Círculo del Liceo

The Círculo del Liceo offered to it members a private guided tour of the exhibition Balenciaga: the elegance of the hat at the Museu del Disseny de Barcelona. With more than eighty pieces and a dozen sets, it is the first international exhibition to focus on Balenciaga hats.

Cristóbal Balenciaga established a very characteristic style and shape in his designs for hats, with refined and stylized volumes that are created through very simple, almost abstract forms, being in themselves authentic sculptures. The exhibition delves into the uniqueness of the designer's work, highlighting the innovative forms, the search for materials and techniques, and the artisan character of his hat production. It also highlights the feminine world that shaped Balenciaga's design and creations: the Paris and Madrid departments were run by women, the hatmakers, and the saleswomen too.
