Details in the Olivier Theyskens – She walks in beauty


For Olivier Theyskens – She walks in beauty, MoMu joined forces with Glenn Sestig Architects who conceptualized the set design from scratch. Bernard Tournemenne from the Glenn Sestig team has been involved with Olivier Theyskens’ catwalk shows since  1997, so the exhibition is a beautiful celebration of the twenty years of collaboration between Olivier Theyskens and Glenn Sestig Architects.


Throughout the exhibition, you will find panels made out of enamel which is a cast iron panel baked repeatedly in 800 degrees Celsius. These panels were crafted by Emaillerie Belge, the last remaining enamel producing company in Benelux today. It was Olivier’s desire for MoMu to cover his entire story: the panels narrate his career like a ribbon swirling through the exhibition. They contain his sketches, images and literary quotes who accompany the atmosphere of his work.

Along with the panels, MoMu has also collaborated with Van Den Weghe, a high-end natural stone company. Details of the silhouettes are carved into the stones, adding an extra touch to our expo. After all, it’s all in the details.
