Body meets dress, dress meets body


MoMu just acquired this dress from the iconic ‘Body meets dress, dress meets body’ collection of Comme des Garçons spring summer 1997 at the Sotheby’s auction of Didier Ludot this Wednesday.

We are happy to add this ‘Lumps and bumps’ dress in which Rei Kawakubo proposed radical new body shapes with padding and cushions which distort the idealized female silhouette.

The dress is fragile and will be conserved by MoMu so future generations can enjoy this important work by one of the greatest voices in contemporary fashion!
