Animalia Fashion

Museum of Costume and Fashion in Pitti Palace, 8 January- 5 May 2019

Clothes like sculptures, fabric and embroidery like paintings: everything in the rooms of the Museum of Costume and Fashion in Pitti Palace helps to recreate a kind of zoological stroll amid the creations of contemporary designers conjuring up the most unexpected of animal worlds. 

From France and Italy to China and Russia, the clothing on display provides visitors with an astonishing overview of what Naturehas to offer Haute Couture in terms of inspiration and atmospherics, and Art as a product of imagination and creativity. Fashion can take us by surprise, it can unleash our imagination, it can involve us in a new game of identification and suggestion. The exhibition explores the relationship that fashion establishes with animals in an entertaining and poetic manner, yet at the same time it sounds an alarm bell at a time when climate change and the superpowers' dwindling interest in environmental issues are endangering countless species.
