Cristóbal Balenciaga Eizaguirre...
(January 21st, 1895 – 23 March 23rd 1972) was a Spanish fashion designer, and the founder of the Balenciaga fashion house in 1917.
The Spanish royal family and the aristocracy wore his designs, but the Spanish Civil War forced him to move from Spain to Paris, France.
He had a reputation as a couturier of uncompromising standards and was referred to as "the master of us all" by Christian Dior and as "the only couturier in the truest sense of the word" by Coco Chanel... who continued... "The others are simply fashion designers".
On the day of his death, in 1972, Women's Wear Daily ran the headline "The King is Dead".
Today, Balenciaga is one of the most respected high-end luxury fashion houses in the world.
This pair of Balenciaga shoes is crafted with dark blue leather and durable straw-roped lifts.
A great fashion look... sure to catch everyone's attention.
From the house of BALENCIAGA!
