Exposition - « Vêtements Modèles » au Mucem

18/08/2020


Like the close link that the Maison Mode Méditerranée has built between this multicultural southern area and the textile world, the Mucem in Marseille is offering an exhibition on five emblematic items of clothing in the history of fashion.

From kilt to espadrille, the exhibition curators Isabelle Crampes and Coline Zellal have assembled more than two hundred pieces with precise geographical routes and surprising trajectories.

The Mucem, a cultural place that unites an entire territory, has already hosted several fashion events in partnership with the Maison Mode Méditerranée, including two editions of the OpenMyMed Festival , notably in 2017, inaugurated with the “Les Santons de Provence” fashion show by JACQUEMUS

At the occasion of this exhibition, presented until December 6th, 2020, AFP journalist Isabelle Wesselingh emphasizes for Fashion Network France on a typical Mediterranean garment: the marcel.  This report, conducted with local Marseille brands, such as Sugar, traces the history of this sailor garment that has become a basic locker room.

The Mucem is open every day except Tuesday from 10AM-8PM
