Glass, like coats, dresses or shoes, is a time capsule of human invention, art, style and social change. More than 3500 years ago, our ancestors discovered that sand (which consists of silica, soda ash and lime) when heated to very high temperatures becomes molten. In this state it can be shaped and molded as it cools into a solid form.

This exhibition explores current trends in menswear design by focusing on the personal collection of Alexandre Marr and Dominic Iudiciani. Marr and Iudiciani’s unique taste shaped the selection of these individual pieces which reveal breaks in men’s fashion from the previously ubiquitous tailored suit. Rather than jackets, trousers and button-down shirts, the garments and ensembles displayed here feature alternatives to more conventionally structured and tailored pieces. These garments also call into question the traditional binary between menswear and women’s wear.
