Exhibition « Marche et démarche, une histoire de la chaussure » at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs of Paris

PREMIÈRE VISION, PATRON OF THE EXHIBITION « MARCHE ET DÉMARCHE, UNE HISTOIRE DE LA CHAUSSURE »AT THE MUSÉE DES ARTS DÉCORATIFS OF PARIS

In order to support and enhance the value of the fashion creative heritage, Première Vision is one of the main sponsors of the exhibition Marche et Démarche, Une histoire de la chaussure that focuses on the history of shoes and footwear, and which will be held from 7 November 2019 to 23 February 2020 at the MAD, the Musée des Arts Décoratifs of Paris.

Following the success of La Mécanique des dessous (2013) and Tenue correcte exigée! (2017), the Musée des Arts Décoratifs continues its exploration into the relationship between fashion and body with a third, and equally inspiring instalment, Marche et démarche, which
looks at the form of the shoe. Curated by Dennis Bruna, with exhibition design by the architect and designer Eric Benqué. The exhibition questions the cultural significance of the shoe, an essential accessory in our daily lives, and explores how the shoe was incorporated into
different styles of walking from the MiddleAges to the present day, in both Western and non-European cultures.
Marche et démarche will display approximately five-hundred objects, including shoes, paintings, objets d’art, photographs, films and advertisements from public and private collections, offering a unique perspective on how a quotidian object can translate from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
