This exhibition is the result of years of joint research with the Cristóbal Balenciaga Museoa. ‘BALENCIAGA. The elegance of the hat’ shows a selection of the hats that the designer created in the headgear departments of the Haute Couture House in Paris and Madrid, from the late 1930s until the closure of the Balenciaga houses in 1968. Cristóbal Balenciaga, one of the most important haute couture fashion designers of the 20th century, established a very distinctive style and shape in his hat designs. The refined and stylized volumes, with simple, almost abstract shapes, made his creations look like sculptures. General admission: € 3. Reduced ticket: € 2.
