He studied at the tailor and in 1916 founded his own business. By the beginning of the 30s. B. has already gained a reputation as a leading designer in Spain. He moved to Paris in 1937. The tailor's craft helped him at all stages of the creation of the model - in design, tailoring and sewing. B. did not adhere to the main trends of his time. His patterns were often symmetrical, balanced and calm. He liked to use gloomy colors, such as dark shades of brown.

The latter were famous for their amazing fur trim, embroidery, and sewing with pearls. In 1963 he brought to the catwalk girls harnessed in tights - harlequin. B. was one of the first designers to display tights in his collections. His name is also associated with huge buttons and large, raised collars. Thinking of becoming a purist and creating classic models, B. developed a style that makes his work immediately recognizable. He left the fashion business in 1968, having worked for 31 years.
