Spanish designer, Cristobal Balenciaga (1895-1972) is a true inspiration for twentieth century designers. His designs created illusions, while outlining the perfect silhouette of a woman’s body. Balenciaga favored mute colors like black and brown, as well as an asymmetrical design. He’s influenced designers as diverse as Andre Courreges and Marc Jacobs. The house is mostly known for its excellent leather goods, particularly the famous motorcycle bag.
