ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion

Quote:
The exhibition is a world first, examining the expansion of the pop phenomenon of paradoxical, imaginary and monster-formed Characters in fashion and dress. Rising as well as broadly known and established designers and artists re-define the relationship between body and clothing, a swell as the borders of our consciousness in What is a Monster?

The exhibition will include creations by Walter Van Beirendonck, Gareth Pugh, Issey Miyake, Cassette Playa, Charlie Le Mindu, Jean-Charles De Castelbajac, Bas Kosters, Maison Martin Margiela and Bernhard Willhelm and many others. The opening of the exhibition was deliberately scheduled to coincide the celebrations of European Museum Night, includes a performance Atopic Bodies [FIVE]: The Monsters’ Ball.
At Benaki Museum, Pireos Street Annexe

Two fashion photographers have important exhibitions going on...

Mario Testino - "In Your Face" at the MFA in Boston

Tim Walker: Story Teller at Somerset House in London

I'm definitely going to see Testino's exhibit at the MFA - it includes fashion photos (of course) and his portraits of the royal family...

would love to hear about Tim Walker's exhibit from folks in London who make it over to Somerset House.

Isabella Blow to Receive Posthumous Exhibit of Her Unparalleled Wardrobe

That personal collection of Isabella Blow's that Daphne Guinness bought in bulk is being put to good use. The late muse and editor is finally getting her own, if posthumous, exhibition of her wackadoodle wardrobe, in partnership with the Isabella Blow Foundation (founded by Guinness) and Central Saint Martins.
Promising to be a major show, Isabella Blow: Fashion Galore! will go on view at London's Somerset House in November, showcasing over 100 items—apparel, shoes, and of course hats—from Blow's closet, including Alexander McQueen's entire spring 2008 collection, which was dedicated in her memory. Other spotlight-grabbing labels include Hussein Chalayan, Prada, and Philip Treacy, the milliner whom she's credited with discovering.
The exhibit will also examine the context of the fashion-as-art pieces by looking at "the rarefied world of British aristocracy" that Blow was born into, as well as her early career assisting Anna Wintour at Vogue and her later tenure at Tatler, British Vogue, and Sunday Times Style.

Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket

The Fashion Institute of Technology’s School of Graduate Studies and The Museum at FIT present Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket. Organized by graduate students in the Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice program, the exhibition explores the genesis of the biker jacket and its evolution into a high-fashion garment. Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket traces the rise of the black leather jacket from utilitarian outerwear to iconic symbol of rebellion, function, and “cool.” Clothing from leading labels such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Yves Saint Laurent, and Rick Owens are featured. The biker jacket emerged in the early 20th century as a protective garment to shield motorcycle riders from the elements. Over the years, the mystique of the motorcycle jacket has attracted not only bikers, but movie stars, young adults, and fashion designers.
The exhibition opens with a Perfecto jacket by the American outerwear company Schott. The Perfecto style, introduced by Irving Schott in 1928, featured durable black leather horsehide, exposed zippers, metal snaps, and an asymmetrical front closure. By the 1950s, due in part to its appropriation by motorcycle gangs—associations fostered by movies such as The Wild One—the jacket had become an emblem of the outlaw biker. Other objects in this introductory section will show how the Perfecto’s iconic classic design and early history influenced fashion designers. This is exemplified by a 2009 Yves Saint Laurent jumpsuit that integrates characteristic design elements of the biker jacket, such as the asymmetrical front and exposed zippers.
The exhibition’s second section includes work by fashion designers inspired by the countercultural groups that adopted the biker jacket as an expression of social defiance. Punks and leathermen utilized design details such as metal embellishments and construction that exposed or exaggerated the body as a marker to stand out from the rest of society. Featured is a high-end jacket by Jean Paul Gaultier that incorporates a metal spike on each elbow and stitching details on the shoulders that recall armor and exaggerate the size of the upper body.
The final section explores avant-garde reinterpretations of the classic biker jacket that push the boundaries of its original symbolism and design. A 2005 Comme des Garçons ensemble from the bikerballerina collection juxtaposes a sculptural masculine black leather jacket with a girlish pink gingham and tulle skirt. While this ensemble and the Perfecto jacket of the 1950s serve very different functions and appeal to different consumers, the allure and mystique of the jacket remains.
Fashion Institute of Technology
Students in the Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory, Museum Practice MA program in FIT’s School of Graduate Studies have collaborated with The Museum at FIT to present Beyond Rebellion: Fashioning the Biker Jacket.

I'm still kicking myself for missing the JPG exhibit last time I was in NYC. Shame on me.

But I certainly won't miss the Nick Cave exhibit here in Boston. The kid-friendly interactive portion makes me wish I actually had a jr. eugenius of my own:

The Dancing Designs of Modern Art Kimono

Many of us, when we picture kimono, envision the traditional Japanese garment covered in similarly traditional images: blossoming floral motifs, soaring or leaping animals, mountain peaks and cresting seascapes in Ukiyo-e style. But cross-cultural exchange between Japan and the West started in earnest during the Meiji period (1868–1912), causing the spread of different technologies and styles in both directions. By the time the Shōwa period rolled around in 1926, Japanese kimono looked quite different than they once had, with patterns that that were far more abstract and modern.

Woman’s Kimono with Undulating Vertical Lines

Opening on Saturday, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s (LACMA) exhibition Kimono for a Modern Age surveys this period of Japanese fashion innovation. The show presents 30 never-before-seen kimono from LACMA’s permanent collection. All date to the first half of the 20th century — chronology you might guess just by looking at the garments, which show a strong affinity with modern art of the period.
“By the early Shōwa period (1926–89), vibrant and dynamic designs inspired by art movements such as Art Deco, Surrealism, and Abstract Expressionism, as well as patterns commemorating an important arctic expedition and the beginning of space exploration, appear on kimono,” says LACMA’s press release. The designs have the bright colors swaths of Fauvism and the bold, geometric patterns of Art Deco; the “undulating vertical lines” of one recall the curving script in Cy Twombly’s paintings. But this isn’t just simple borrowing — it’s the shaping of Western modes of art making to fit a distinctly Japanese form. The resulting garments are both artifacts of their time and amazingly current. Herewith, a few of the kimono from the show.
