The London Museum announce their latest exhibition 'The Anatomy of a Suit'
Running until June 1 2014
In the midst of the London Collections: Men fashion week in the UK capital, The London Museum have announced their exhibition 'Anatomy of a Suit', which runs until June 1 this year. Fashion-curator Timothy Long explained that the aim of the exhibition is to showcase the iconic suit as the structurally complex art piece it is - something can instantly change the body:
"Previous research into the suit has at times overlooked the fact that it is a feat of engineering, with the ability to transform the body. Since the secrets of the suit are hidden on the inside, it’s easy to see why. It’s only through deconstructing the suit jacket and turning it inside out that we can bring its technical genius to the fore."
Using historical suit jackets from markets across the capital, the exhibition will dissect a selection of historical jackets in order to trace the technical genius lurking underneath the suit's surface.
