Who is Cristóbal Balenciaga?

In the 1950s, Cristóbal Balenciaga pioneered new shapes never before seen in fashion, including the babydoll dress, sack dress and cocoon coat.

With these design innovations, he achieved what is considered to be his most important contribution to the world of fashion: a new silhouette for women. Long before there were nonfungible token drops and crypto, Cristóbal took fashion, and women, to the moon.


Background on the drop

The collection is inspired by Lorenzo Riva’s collection of over 8,000 drawings created by Cristóbal Balenciaga during the height of the couture movement. As the artistic director of Balenciaga during the 1980s, Riva received these never-before-seen pieces by Maison Balenciaga.

Cointelegraph collaborated with Riva, Art Consulting — the company curating Riva’s Balenciaga collection — and fine art NFT platform Artvein to create the NFTs for the drop. In addition, the drop brought on Animal Concerts and Defy Trends as strategic partners.
