The Musée des Arts Décoratifs is a fascinating museum, covering a huge variety of decorative arts.
When I can, I like to visit sections of a museum at a time. This time I headed straight for the fashion section. It changes yearly, and is currently dedicated to Dries Van Noten and what has inspired him in his work. Alongside other designer’s pieces, the exhibition also features clips from films, photographs and pieces of furniture and music. Pieces from his collections are shown together with iconic pieces from the museum’s collection of fashion and textiles. Inside it’s dark to preserve the clothes, and their jewel like colours and details really stand out.
Dries Van Noten – Inspirations, runs until November 2nd 2014.
- Mode et Textile – Musée des Arts Décoratifs, 107 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris
