This past Thursday I took a bus from campus down to the nice fancy part of town where I felt like royalty for an afternoon in the company of the master, Yves Saint Laurent.Well, fine, it wasn’t exactly with the real person seeing as the world unfortunately lost the great visionary back in 2008. But I did enjoy the company of his legacy: his most beautiful creations exhibited by the Fundación Mapfre and Fondation Pierre Berge, his long time partner in crime.
On the 10th of June they inaugurated the museum dedicated to probably the greatest Spanish designer of all: Cristobal Balenciaga. The museum is in none other than the designer’s home town. A gorgeous, picturesque, fishing boat town, also known as Getaria, on the coast of the Basque Country. This is where I spent my Saturday.
