Spanish costumes exhibition

news costumes espagnols


The Maison de Victor Hugo will be presenting a remarkable selection of traditional Spanish costumes borrowed from the collections of the Museo del Traje, the Museum of Costume and Ethnological Heritage in Madrid.For the first time in Paris, this display reveals all the skill and ingenuity of the craftsmen and craftswomen who, between the end of the 18th and the beginning of the 20th century, made the forty or more costumes and accessories on display. Their finesse of execution, their impressive variety, inspired the greatest Spanish dressmakers, including Balenciaga.Emblematic of a trade, of a social or cultural group, a specific place or the religious beliefs of their original wearers, their sheer creativity strikes us today with unprecedented force.

From 21 june to 24 september 2017
at La maison de Victor Hugo,
6 Place des Vosges,
75004 Paris
