Modest Fashion – Stedelijk Museum Schiedam
September 21 – Februari 9 2020
Haute couture meets skiwear meets Renaissance. It sums up the images that Suzanne Jongmans made for the campaign for the capsule collection of the Genius project of Moncler in a nutshell. Suzanne was commissioned by Pierpaolo Piccioli, the creative director at Valentino and mastermind of the first Genius collection, a collaborative project in which Moncler invites fashion’s biggest names to reinterpret the brand. Piccioli sought serenity and purity and found them in the oeuvre of Suzanne. He gave her artistic carte blanche. She transformed her models into religious icons, who could have stepped straight out of a Renaissance painting. It was a match made in heaven.
These 3 artworks are now on show in this exhibition, togehter with the dress made by Pierpaolo Piccioli.
