“Carbon and Velvet” explores the artistic-documentary vision and aesthetic revision of traditional attire by Cristóbal Balenciaga, in his Haute Couture creations, and by Ortiz Echagüe in his photographic portraits of traditional Spain. The work of these two artists converses to offer interpretations of a reality, that of the traditional costume, which ceased to exist as far back as the early decades of the 20th century and to which both, through works of undeniable artistic quality, lend validity and a timeless quality.
