In true Parisian fashion, the City of Light is welcoming the forthcoming Olympic Games with an exhibition that combines two of its great loves: fashion and sport. "Fashion and Sport: From One Podium to the Other," which opens tomorrow at the Museum of Decorative Arts, delves into the fascinating relationship between these two domains, stretching from ancient times to the present day.
Curated by Sophie Lemahieu, the exhibition features an expansive collection of 450 pieces of clothing and accessories, representing a history of fashion's integration with sport. Notable works from pioneers of sportswear fashion like Jean Patou, Jeanne Lanvin, Gabrielle Chanel, and Elsa Schiaparelli will be displayed, offering visitors an insightful journey through time.
Whether you are a sports enthusiast, a fashion aficionado, or simply curious about the historical intersections of these two fields, this exhibition promises to be an enriching experience. The event will run until April 7, 2024, giving locals and tourists ample opportunity to explore the curated pieces.
