ART IN FASHION
Sven-Harrys konstmuseum | Stockholm, Sweden
13 February 2020 - 31 May 2020
Cay Bond is a fashion expert, journalist, trend spotter, and experienced cultural analyst. In her first exhibition for Sven-Harrys konstmuseum, she has selected fourteen important fashion designers—Swedish and international stars—that all have one thing in common: their work is clearly influenced by art.
In every era, successful fashion designers have been able to capture the spirit of the day. They share that sensibility with artists, whose relationship with contemporary culture has always been practically symbiotic. This is an opportunity to get a close look at Olivier Saillard’s installation Moda Povera, the dramatic creations Copenhagen-based Nikoline Liv Andersen has designed for musical artist Björk to wear in various performances, and award-winning design star Selam Fessahaye’s creations with distinctive explosions of materials that have been worn by Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden. The show also features a new piece by Princess Madeleine’s favorite designer, Linda Nurk; romantic knit items of soft wool by Ann Bonander Looft; a perfectly tailored overcoat by BITE Studios; an elegant dress and tuxedo by the Danish Royal Family’s favorite, Mark Kenly Domino Tan (MKDT); Diana Orving’s feminine creations with an artistic touch; and the organically inspired installations of internationally recognized designer Martin Bergström.
