I was at the AGO several weeks ago and luckily happened upon this exhibit. It is not promoted as a costume exhibit however there are approximately 20 pieces on loan from the V&A and several other sources . These are predominately Schiaparelli and some Jacques Fath. You will see many iconic, highly recognizable pieces of historical fashion along with accessories and perfume bottles all influenced by the Surrealist movement. Both designers were trailblazers in their field and these pieces are all still relevent today. A great chance for a close up look at genius design and craftsmanship."
Surreal Things offers a new perspective on the surrealists’ contentious and ambiguous relationship to the commercial fields of design, fashion, advertising, architecture, film and theatre. The exhibition explores how the increasing pressures of burgeoning consumer culture conflicted with surrealism’s first principles. Nonetheless, there was significant creative, cross-fertilization between surrealist artists and designers. The exhibition brings together some of the most extraordinary objects ever created, and will include painting, sculpture, architecture, works on paper, jewellery, ceramics, textiles, furniture, fashion, film and photography.
