the newly opened docks en seine, cite de la mode et du design, houses among a few other things, the musee galliera hors les murs.

currently, they have two shows: comme des garcons white drama, the exhibition of the full spring-summer 2012 collection and cristobal balenciaga, the couture master and founder of the balenciaga fashion house.

the cristobal balenciaga show includes a selection of archive pieces. i especially liked the asymmetrical hat current creative director nicolas guesquiere decided to revive this season.

next door, the all white outfits designed by rei kawakubo were exhibited in plastic bubbles: a cute way of keeping the dust away, i think.

the 33-piece comme des garcons collection was first shown to a limited number of industry professionals on october the 1st 2011.
