OMG, it’s Balenciaga and Spain at your de Young Museum.

(Did you know that the de Young’s the fourth-busiest museum in America? Well, per the Los Angeles Times, it is. Hurray! [Man-splaining Mode = OFF])

Anyway, I can’t begin to tell you how little I know about Balenciaga or Spain, but I do know that Gwyneth Paltrow trekked all the way up to the 415 just to see it. So why don’t you check it out as well?

From the catalogue – strike a pose, Cristóbal:

It all ends on July 4th, 2011

See you there!
