Cristobal Balenciaga, full of grace

We just got back from Guetaria. We need to go. We need to transmit the solemnity of the temple dedicated to Cristobal Balenciaga. To approach his mystery, his state of grace. Walking through its rooms, we are filled with a deep respect for what we do. It distances us, even if only for a few hours, from the rush of sales to subsist. Echoes of excellence resound, of following our own current while learning the trade. Pepita’s …

Balthus, the latest in children’s fashion

No doubt, it makes an impact. That’s why a recommendation comes first: leave your prejudices at home and come out of it beautifully to savour good art and an extraordinary children’s fashion catalogue. The brave Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum deserves it. From the 19th to the 26th of May it hosts a total of 47 works by the painter Blathasar Klossowiski de Rola, known as Balthus, in collaboration with the Fondation Beyeler in Basel. Through his “lolitas” you …

They will show you flowers

I have two friends who take flowers very seriously. One because she’s a perfumer and the other because she’s a psychiatrist. Both enlighten me on this subject and emphasize how important it is to be surrounded by them and incorporate them into our lives. They are therapeutic: they brighten life and educate sensitivity. Is not a perfume but to make its essence yours? Surely that’s why it’s uncomfortable to be asked about its brand. We are reluctant …

Rejuvenating is not in the skin

Start over and rejuvenate the beginnings. That’s why it’s a good idea to get in touch with professionals who are beginning to make their way. If they are also artists, the sensation of freshness and emotion increases considerably. If, to top it all, they are actors and actresses, the lifting is total, without anesthesia, and painless. Really, youth should not be associated only with the skin. I confess this feeling because yesterday I went to see an …

LET THE CHAMPAGNE RUN….

Thinking about how to organize the next Christmas holidays, contemplating a little overwhelmed the professional and personal agenda, the only thing that comes to mind – and I don’t know why – is the champagne. I remember a phrase by Charles Dickens that said something like “champagne is one of life’s elegant extras”. He’s right. No one can feel vulgar with a glass of this sparkling wine in their hand. One feels like a kind of responsibility …

Madrid open to the sea

During these days Madrid is open to the sea. I would like to reveal it not only to those of you who have incorporated art and culture into your lives, but also to those of you who need to escape and recover the energy that the sun and the sea give us. The Maphre Foundation exhibits a jewel under the title Rediscovering the Mediterranean which is an absolute haven of peace and light. Those of us who …

The caprice and the Toile de Jouy

There are places to be visited in company and others in solitude. I think El Parque del Capricho is one of the second in this autumn in Madrid. Once you enter its refined atmosphere, it is impossible to remember the strangling work agenda between so much botanical wealth and small architectures; it is a coquettish paradise of good taste and harmony. I can imagine it in all its splendour at the end of the 18th century, when …

Free eyes. Exquisite hand

What do we want from art? What is it useful for? Without cover-ups: to provoke pleasure. A sensory pleasure that touches the spirit. Before an artistic work, we immerse ourselves in the atmosphere that the artist has created to share it with us, so that we become impregnated with it and a bond is created, sometimes eternal. The Palace of Gaviria today oozes jazz. It spills elegance and refinement. Through its noble corridors, the high society of …

A mixture of laughter and seriousness.

Art guides us because artists uniquely interpret the events of human life. The term “Comedy of Art” – the theatrical manifestation in which the new collection is inspired – derives from what “Art” meant in the Middle Ages: Ability; a capacity directed, above all, to “whip power and establish the dignity of the humble. With a mixture of laughter and seriousness”, as the Swedish academics pointed out in 1997 when they awarded the prize par excellence to …
