Yohji Yamamoto Dream Shop-Antwerp Exhibition
Sounds quite lovely

Quote:
MoMu is welcoming an exhibition devoted to Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. The third installment of a series beginning with the Pitti Immagine Foundation in Florence and the Musée de la Mode et du Textile in Paris, the Antwerp show is entitled DREAM SHOP. Halfway the exhibition the visitor enters the DREAM SHOP: a white, dream-like space where visitors can try on around twenty pieces in neon-drenched changing cubicles.
Thought of in two parts, this event will at once be a retrospective of the designer’s work and also a unique threefold experience of his creative work: visual, tactile and corporal.
Yamamoto’s designs strike the perfect balance between creative simplicity and technical virtuosity and refinement. His unique ability to combine the elegance of French haute couture with the traditions of Japanese dress results in pieces that are at once pure and sculptural.
Mise en scène by Masao Nihei – recognized for his particular treatment of light in his work on fashion shows – DREAM SHOP will present 80 silhouettes, from the late 1980s to today. For each of the three locations, a different concept was conceived that closely links up with the architecture of each exhibition space and the museum’s philosophy.
The silhouettes map a course that highlights the essential principles of clothing according to Yohji Yamamoto: the value of the colour black, the use of colour as light, construction of an equilibrium, the traditions and techniques of French couture, and the importance of air as an integral component between body and clothing. The emphasis will be particularly on the decade 1995 to 2005, an era of considerable rethinking of his creations.

Best [fashion] exhibition I've visited, so far. They covered some of most shows since ± 1995. Even the majestic wedding gown with the gloves and accesoires inside it [as pictured]. You can look at his clothes for as long as you want, you won't know what they're really like until you try them on, obviously... The most interesting thing to me was the transformation of the pieces hanging on a hanger, to how they take shape on the human body. That shortsleeve top/blazer was made for me... sigh. It was so obvious, they just should've donated it to me.

I also tried on this dress from his S/S 01 collection.

What are they gonna do when all the sudden the rain comes pouring down on our beloved dinosaur dress?

Cool, but that hooded figure walking away through broken glass is downright morbid...
