Discover an exceptional exhibition at the Palais Galliera

Published on 18 August 2017 in Exhibitions & Museums

This gorgeous fashion museum of the city of Paris always finds a way to take us on exciting journeys through time with its fascinating presentations, exceptional collections and hidden treasures. A host of great characters awaits you at the ‘Anatomy of a Collection’ exhibition at the Musée Galliera. This time the clothes speak for themselves as an extensive collection of garments and accessories belonging to some of the great names of the past is unveiled.

Uncovering memorable clothing

The city of Paris fashion museum begs us all to ask one question -"Who wears what? ".  In order to answer it, take a little time to explore the ‘Anatomy of a Collection’.  During the event, an amazing collection of clothes, many belonging to notable characters from the 18th century to the present day, will be on show. As soon as you enter the museum, you’ll feel as if they are still there, standing in front of the illuminated windows, dressed in their sumptuous clothing. Nothing is hidden from view, from Marie Antoinette’s corsets and the clothing of Louis XVI to Napoleon’s vests and his wife’s silk dresses. 

A fascinating atmosphere of meditation

Subtle lighting and a slightly sober atmosphere, Anatomy of a Collection evokes a meditative air. Seeing Cléo de Merode’s jacket, George Sand’s dress or Tilda Swinton’s shimmering pyjamas you’ll feel as if you’re a part of garments’ unique history. The exhibition can be enjoyed until 12th February, 2017. To ensure that you’re a part of this special event that combines fashion with history, why not make a reservation now at Les Plumes Hotel near the Musée Galliera?
