Exhibition “Undressed”

30 July, Sunday

Exhibition about the history of underwear from the Victoria and Albert Museum (London)

The great retrospective exhibition of underwear design from the 18th century to the present day, which was carefully prepared by the curators of V&A, will reside in Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art in St. Petersburg for a few months. 

Through elegant corsets, crinolines, boxer shorts, bras, hosiery, lingerie and loungewear the exhibition will tell the detailed history of underwear, exploring the "intimate" relationship between underwear and fashion, the role of underwear in formation of male and female images.

Highlights will include floral embroidered stockings worn by Queen Alexandra; a sheer dress by Liza Bruce famously worn by Kate Moss; an exquisite negligée by Carine Gilson, like that worn by actress Bérénice Marlohe in the film Skyfall; and Antonio Beradi’s monochrome dress, worn by Gwyneth Paltrow, featuring a trompe l’oeil corset which reveals the underwear worn beneath.
