Masculinities

Masculinities

Clothes make the man! From the ‘sapeurs of Matonge’ through the adolescent silhouettes of Raf Simons to Vivienne Westwood's neo-Romantic pirate, no man is like another. The “Masculinities” exhibition highlights the development of the idea of masculinity, particularly by means of contemporary fashion. Examples from Belgian and international creators explore the way fashion incarnates a variety of visions of man, from the pater familias to the gender fluid millennial and toys with codes and archetypes to better transgress these visions.
