fashion.psfk paid a visit to the Museum of Contemporary Art in LA to check out their recently opened exhibition highlighting the connections between and shared inspirations of fashion and architecture.
‘Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture’ presents an assortment of work from contemporary (and a few earlier) fashion designers and architects, grouped together under grandiose titles including Identity, Shelter, Structural Skin, and Tectonic Strategies.
All the usual suspects are represented- outfits by Hussein Chalayan, Yohi Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Viktor + Rolf and Comme des Garcons are displayed alongside buildings designed by Herzog & de Meuron, Toyo Ito, Shigeru Ban, and Zaha Hadid, successfully depicting the overlapping styles and ideas. Interesting additions to the line-up include delicate constructions by Oliver Theyskiens, geometric designs by Yeohlee Teng, and clever linear cutting from Narcisco Rodriguez.
