Exhibition 28.08.20 > 13.06.21

In Belgium, men’s fashion designers are among the most influential in the world. However, up until now, no Belgian museum had delved into the subject of men’s fashion. Experience the Museum’s latest exhibition – Masculinities – and discover the world of male fashion and its development through time. From the “Great Male Renunciation” at the end of the 18th century to the genderless fashion trends of 2020, including the suit and tie!

An exhibition that shines a light on the male wardrobe

Just like femininity, which casts its reflection onto man, the idea of masculinity has also evolved over time. Over the centuries, men have changed their appearance. Until the 18th century, male clothing was characterised by bright and sophisticated forms, far removed from the sober outfits that later became the norm. Since the 1980s, man has regained a certain freedom in terms of dress. But have the taboos really been cast aside?
