Beyond the Suit: Contemporary Menswear from the Collection of Alexandre Marr and Dominic Iudiciani

Friday, July 27, 2018 (All day) to Sunday, June 30, 2019 (All day)

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.
